Author Spotlight: Stephen King

Today is Thursday, which means it's time for another author spotlight.

This week's author spotlight is Stephen King.

Stephen King is an American author of contemporary horror, supernatural fiction, suspense, science fiction, and fantasy. His books have sold more than 350 million copies, many of which have been adapted into feature films, miniseries, television shows, and comic books. King has published 54 novels, including seven under the pen name Richard Bachman and six non-fiction books. He has written nearly 200 short stories, most of which have been collected in book collections. Many of his stories are set in his home state of Maine.

Stephen King has also collaborated with musical artists, visual artists, as well as writing several books with a couple of other authors. Like any other highly successful author/celebrity, he donates money to charity and formed The Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation with his wife to provide grants to communities in need in Maine.

For any writers or aspiring writers out there, Stephen King wrote a book about the craft of writing, called On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft.

I personally have not read any of Stephen King's works, but a few are on my to-be-read list.

Happy Reading and Keep on Writing!



  1. Started my Road Trip visiting today. Haven't read any Stephen King books but I shelved plenty of them in my college days.
