Stephen Edwin King is an American author of contemporary horror, supernatural fiction, suspense, science fiction, and fantasy.

 

Hello, my name is Vashti and I’m a writer of horror, fantasy, and suspense/thriller. It’s no secret, to those who know me, that I’m a huge fan of author Stephen King. I’ve read most of his books, including the non-horror ones. It is always a bit scary for an avid reader, such as myself, to go watch a movie adaptation of a book I’ve loved reading. Too many times things go horribly wrong. Like when a director or screenwriter change too much of the storyline and mix in a great deal of ‘hollywood’. Like they’re going to tell a better story then Stephen King, really? The directors and screenwriters that have remained within Stephen King’s storyline have gotten it right. Don’t mess with a good thing people.

Anyway, I get goosebumps and chills up and down my spine when I’m asked who Stephen King is. I take a few steps back and imagine a green gooey alien behind his/her skin mask. You’d have to be from another planet not to have heard of Stephen King. He is the bestselling author on the planet and a very wise man. Today, I’m going to list some of my favorite Stephen King books, movie adaptations, and quotes. If you’re not familiar with who Stephen King is you will by the end of this post and maybe you’ve been a fan of his all along and didn’t even know it. 😉

My Favorite Stephen King Quotes:

1/  “Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.”

2/  “And as a writer, one of the things that I’ve always been interested in doing is actually invading your comfort space. Because that’s what we’re suppose to do. Get under your skin, and make you react.”

3/  “Get busy living, or get busy dying.”

4/  “I am the literary equivalent of a Big Mac and fries.”

5/  “Books are uniquely portable magic.”
