2014 IPPY award-winning author S.K. Falls believes a degree in psychology qualifies her to emotionally torture her characters in an authentic fashion. When she isn't writing her twisted love stories, she can be found gallivanting around Charleston, SC with her family.

Ooh! How about, “A twisted love story forged in sickness, fighting its way to health.” Or “A girl who delights in making herself sick falls in love with a terminally ill boy. What will happen when her secret gets out?” I also love the tagline the Forever team came up with: One Boy. One Girl. One Chance.
What types of scenes are your most favorite to write?
Emotional ones. If a character’s falling apart on the inside, the words really fly (painful as that is—my characters are very real to me, and so is their agony!). I love when things are raw and real and people’s masks come off. It’s a really moving feeling, to think that I can show the reader the character’s deepest hopes and fears and desperation and pain.
If you could have dinner with any three authors (alive or dead), who would you choose and why?
Margaret Atwood—I really admire her and think she’s easily one of the smartest, most insightful people alive.
Sophie Kinsella—I love chick lit, and she has a real gift with humor. I think she’d be a blast to go anywhere with.
Stephen King—he’s such an icon. I grew up reading and being totally terrified of his stories.
What are your favorite types of stories to read?
I like to read a wide variety of things. Some examples: Memoirs, sci-fi, urban fantasy, women’s fiction, horror, chick lit, and YA.
Last question, are you working on anything right now?
A few projects, but I’m one of those weird writers who can’t talk about future projects for fear of jinxing them. =)
What’s one thing you’re proudest of to have accomplished?
I was seven when I swallowed my first needle.
My mom freaked out and rushed me to the emergency room.
She stayed by my side all night.
I never wanted it to end.
When you spend your whole life feeling invisible-when your parents care more about deals and deadlines than they do about you-you find ways of making people take notice. Little things at first. Then bigger. It's scary how fast it grows. Then one day something happens that makes you want to stop. To get better. To bebetter. And for the first time, you understand what it's like to feel whole, happy . . . loved. For the first time, you love someone back.
For me, that someone was Drew.
