About Melissa Szydlek

I am a transplant to the Triangle area of North Carolina and I love it. Born and raised in Philadelphia, PA and living in Detroit, MI for over 16 years, I have been a big-city girl my entire life. Now, however, I live a quieter life at a slower pace and am thankful for every moment.

In addition to my own work, you can find me collaborating with a talented group of indie authors known as Top Writers Block. Find us on Smashwords, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and so forth!

I value the opinions of my readers. Please share them with me! You can contact me via my Facebook page.

A few people have asked me how to pronounce my last name: it's "sid-lak".

Review by: Kevin A. Lyons on Aug. 27, 2015 :
These are two related stories in a setting that seems to combine elements of colonial New England, the Wild West, and the Brothers Grimm. The characters are well developed and the stories are very original.

I have had this story on my Kindle for some time, waiting for my full attention. Well, I'm glad I finally found the time because it transported me to another world, providing pure entertainment. I don't believe that this story, not unlike ones written by Tolkien, is reserved for any age group in particular. Vivid descriptions make it easy to be drawn into this tale, which I recommend!

Review by: Gary Weston on April 13, 2012 :
Once in awhile, a significant writer comes along. Melissa is that writer. Although a good read for any age, any young aspiring writer, or any writer of YA stories, must read this. Not only is it an engaging story, but the purity of the writing shines out in every line. If you want to know how it's done, this is the story to show you the way. It is that good. It is also the start of a series that will captivate and entertain for a very long time and I can't wait for the next installment. If there were six stars, i would give it six.
