As a child, Sara B. Elfgren dreamt of being a writer. As a teen she made the decision to commit to the dream. She spent her 20’s attaining a degree in Film Studies, while working as a screenwriter and script consultant. At 30 she signed the contract for her debut novel – The Circle – which she co-wrote with Mats Strandberg. Together they penned the bestselling and critically acclaimed Engelsfors trilogy. The Circle has been translated to twenty-five languages, made into a movie and was nominated to the August Award in 2011.

Sara B. Elfgren is interested in many genres, but her primary focus is speculative fiction. She is attracted to ”what if”-scenarios where the laws of nature are thrown out of balance, especially when the supernatural clashes with our everyday lives. She likes to work on her own and with other writers as well as illustrators, comic book artists and directors. She enjoys working in different media. Her unlimited creativity is combined with a strong discipline and the iron will of a long distance runner (though she hates running).

In 2017 she and artist Karl Johnsson published Vei – book 1 – a graphic novel and the first part of an epic fantasy story based on Norse mythology. The book instantly gained a following among readers and critics alike and ended up at the top of the bestseller lists for graphic books. Sara B. Elfgren also has received critical acclaim for her children’s books Time for Each Other (2015) and Let’s Play! (2016), illustrated by artist Maria Fröhlich.

In Dreams is her fourth novel, and her solo debut.
