ABOUT ME...

ABOUT ME:

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/)

Undermined






Out of the darkness they crept, slithering across floors cold and dusty.

I am not alone.
And one by one, in numbers great and small, they took the life from me.
I was but the few.
From their deeds, that took without greed, all that I had cherished.
I feared great loss.
But up from those, who took from me, their battle they have lost.
I am but many.
And now have claimed all that I am, and all that will ne’er be taken again.
I have won . . .
                  The battle done . . .
                                           My life is my own to keep.
