Author Stephen King- 65 Today

 

 

 

American author Stephen King turns 65 today. King has sold over 350 million books over the years. He has published 50 novels and 5ive non-fiction books and nearly 200 short stories. His books have been made into countless movies. I have only read one Stephen King book, last years’ 11-22-63″ his fictional work on the JFK assassination. I enjoyed that book. My favourite Stephen King movies would be “The Shawshank Redeption” which is one of my top 10 favourite movies ever and “Stand By Me”

Years ago I used to play in “Dead Pools” where you would pick celebrities who you thought would die in the coming year, and I became acquainted with Stephen King’s brother-in-law who was a fellow player. They both went to the University of Maine and married sisters.

  1. i have read a lot of his work. i think i like ‘the stand’ the best. King has a very friendly working with up and coming directors and writers. he sold the rights to ‘shawshank’ to frank darabont for $1 so that the movie could be made. ‘stand by me’, ‘apt pupil’, and ‘shawshank’ all came out of the same book of short stories.

  2. I have read a lot of his works also. I read more Dean Koontz now and a lot of horror short stories. Of course, now I have published horror short stories, so there is that. I have always wanted to meet both of these authors. Still hope to. Thanks for letting me know about the birthday.
