About Me

Welcome, and hello!

My name is Lorelei Savaryn. I am a writer, and my stories usually focus on the atmospheric, and creepy, but always with a pulse of hope.

My current manuscript is a middle grade contemporary fantasy, complete at 54,000 words, which I am pitching as THE LAND OF YESTERDAY x NIGHT CIRCUS.

I am a 2018 Pitch Wars mentee under the wonderful mentorship of Juliana L. Brandt and Lacee Little. To learn more about Pitch Wars, click here. And here’s a link to our Pitch Wars team interview!

These are my people.

My husband and I reside in northern Illinois with our growing family. We enjoy game nights, going on walks when the weather is amenable, watching AFV, and pretty much anything where we can spend time together.

I have a M.A. in Education, and used to be a classroom teacher. I currently work as an instructional coach, supporting teachers professional learning on an individual and staff-wide level.

I’m an INFJ and have a not-so-secret past in improvisational comedy, which means I’m pretty good on my feet in awkward situations!

Besides writing, I enjoy playing piano, reading, doing escape rooms, puzzles, wine, chocolate, singing, and finding new funny or suspenseful shows to watch with my husband after the kids have gone to bed.
