Arwen Elys Dayton is best known for her 2012 novel Resurrection and the YA Seeker trilogy. She began her career as a teenage staff writer at a foundation that produced Peabody Award-winning educational shows for PBS. Soon afterward, she began writing novels.

She 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 when researching Resurrection), Hong Kong and its many islands, lots of ruined castles in Scotland, and the cold cities around the Baltic Sea. She enjoys creating complete worlds inhabited by characters who charm, frustrate or inspire.

Arwen lives with her husband and their three children on the West Coast of the United State

Some thoughts on 9/11



I found out I was pregnant with my second child on 9/11. For me that day was a strange juxtaposition of personal happiness as a mother and deep anger and grief as an American. And there was another feeling in there—indignation. How could anyone not see what America stands for? I was bringing a new life into the world in a large part because I lived in an amazing country where anything was possible Read more of this blog post »

“She was a Seeker now, marked for life.
She had thought this brand would be an eblem of pride, but now it meant something entirely different. She was damned.”
Arwen Elys Dayton, Seeker

“Yea for we are the conquerors And all that is lies before us A black domain of stars And we the brightest lights within it”
Arwen Elys Dayton, Resurrection

“This is something you learn when you have taken hundreds of tests: The person who wrote the test has selected one answer as truth. If you don’t choose that answer, you are marked as having chosen wrong. And yet, as the test taker, you still get to select which answer you believe is correct. It is your option, always, to see the answer differently from anyone else.”
Arwen Elys Dayton, Stronger, Faster, and More Beautiful

“America is the greatest engine of innovation that has ever existed, and it can't be duplicated anytime soon, because it is the product of a multitude of factors: extreme freedom of thought, an emphasis on independent thinking, a steady immigration of new minds, a risk-taking culture with no stigma attached to trying and failing, a noncorrupt bureaucracy, and financial markets and a venture capital system that are unrivaled at taking new ideas and turning them into global products.”
Thomas L. Friedman

“The truth of a myth...is not in its words but its patterns.”
David Mitchell, The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet
