S.K. Yule began writing in 2008. She had back and neck issues, and needed a career she could do at home. She chose writing and says she hasn’t regretted a day since.

S.K. Yule says she’s made many mistakes along the way and can’t really pinpoint them although she does remember her accomplishments. Just getting published was a big deal for her. Also, she won second place in a contest through her publisher. The title was Breaking the Cowboy. Her favorite genres to read are horror, paranormal, and historical which she has also touched in her own writing. Don’t forget the erotica lol. Her goals contain three simple words: write, write, write. 

 The most difficult book she wrote was the Darkest series because the characters were so conflicting and she needed to make sure they were still cohesive and worked well together. On the other hand, Second Chances was the easiest book she wrote because it came to her in a dream and she wrote it in a matter of weeks. The words simply poured out of her brain, she says.

What sets S.K. Yule apart from other writers? She hopes her voice is unique. She doesn’t think she’s predictable, which could be good and bad depending on whom you’re speaking with. One book could have “happy-go-lucky” characters while the next book could be “dark, tortured” characters. She writes a combination of straight, ménage, and gay characters. She doesn’t follow a general guide for her characters. She likes happy endings but it doesn’t mean she won’t make her characters suffer before finding that ending.

Her first choice for genres is Paranormal. She grew up loving horror. She’d sneak out to watch all the classics: Frankenstein, Mummy, Dracula, etc. Nothing ever really scared her.

Right now she’s working on the last book for the Darkest series. She didn’t share a title with me so keep your eye out for that. She’s hoping to have it finished this year some time. She had a lot of emails from her fans asking her when she’d finish the series so she decided to get to it after fighting a heavy schedule.

Her best advice for other writers is to not give up.

 This is the last author I have for now. If you would like to be displayed like these authors, please send me an email and I'll get you started with an interview! Thank you!!!
