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/)

5 Star Review on my book Tortured Minds!

Reading Tortured Minds by Sue Mydliak reminds me how fortunate I am to watch this author progress from the beginning of her writing career. And progress she has. She has made great strides writing stories, a novella, a sequel in progress, and now this collection of twisted tales - amoong others. Reading her work from the beginning shows me that she diligently practices her craft, but she has had writing ability from the beginning.

Usually when reading a collection, it's tempting to try to choose one favorite among them all. I could not do that with Tortured Minds. Each story has its own unexpected ending that creeps up, sometimes slowly and unsuspecting, sometimes hard and fast. Each ending left me with a Wow! feeling; made me stop and think, and then want more.

Tortured Minds by Sue Mydliak contains short and quick stories and I couldn't help moving right into reading the next one to learn what else this author might produce. I was never disappointed. I look forward to more from Sue Mydliak and recommend this quick read.
