About S.M. Nystoriak…

A graduate of the Crane School of Music in Potsdam, NY, Susan Nystoriak teaches music to Middle School students by day, and creates stories by night. Her writing blends together her passion for music and her love of fiction. Always trying to “Build A Better Mousetrap”, so to speak, she often searches for new and creative ways to catch more writing time.

Susan has written four novels to date, and loves writing short stories. At S.M. Nystoriak’s Writer’s Block, she posts personal perspectives about writing, and features interviews with authors and other “writerly” types.

Additionally, Susan is a Literary Agent with Golden Wheat Literary Agency, where she represents authors who word-weave spectacular and fantastical tales, and whose characters pursue their passions.

Susan is represented by Jessica Schmeidler of Golden Wheat Literary, and her novel, WORDS IN THE WINDOWSILL is set to release with REUTS Publications. Her short story, ECHOES OF LILY, was featured in the TGNA Summer Nights Anthology, 2015.
