Arwen Elys Dayton Books & Biography


Arwen Elys Dayton began her career as a teenage staff writer at a foundation that produced award-winning shows for PBS. Soon afterward, she began writing screenplays and novels, including Sovereign’s Hold and Resurrection, the #1 Amazon bestseller in Sci-Fi in both the US and the UK. Stronger, Faster, and More Beautiful is Arwen’s first novel with Harper Voyager.
Arwen spends months doing research for her stories. Her explorations have taken her around the world to places like the Great Pyramid (which she explored by flashlight), Hong Kong and its many islands, and lots of ruined castles in Scotland. She enjoys creating complete worlds inhabited by characters who charm, frustrate or inspire. Arwen lives with her husband and their three children in both sunny Southern California and the rainy Pacific Northwest. You can visit her at and follow @arwenelysdayton on Twitter and Instagram
