Sue Mydliak was born in Flint, Michigan. Came to Illinois when she was a little girl and graduated from Downers Grove South. It wasn't until the book Twilight came out did she develop her interest in writing. It was then in 2011, that her first book, Birthright, was published and made best seller the first week it was out. This lead her to make Birthright into a Trilogy. She has written two other books, Night Games and an anniversary book, Forever, which is Birthright's story, but whose story line is different and geared more for adults. She is currently writing two other books, Eternal and Secrets and has finished illustrating a new children's book, JellyBean Turns Three (see her Children's book website, http://susiebbooks.strikingly.com/)

The actual place I wrote about in Birthright

I cried...here was a place that for as many times I have been to Starved Rock, I have never walked the trail to see it, but I had to this time. I saw pictures of it only and today I went and saw it.

Six miles and 142 stairs later, I found it and out of sheer exhaustion, I cried. It was so beautiful and I wrote about this place in my novel and then, to actually see the place...wonderful!


  1. Wow! You took the reverse route with this, but it worked! Alrighty!


  2. It was exactly how I thought it would look!
