Question: Who is your favorite author and why?

The very first adult novel that I read all the way through was Carrie when I was maybe 11 years old. I was already into horror at that age, except zombies, that is. I would have nightmares with zombies. That’s another whole story in itself.

Anyway, I was so drawn in with this book, that my siblings would love to catch me reading it and would sneak and scare the mess out of me.

After Carrie, I was a hardcore Stephen King fan. I started reading and collecting everything I could find that he wrote. I am still collecting.

One of my dreams was to go to Bangor Maine and find his home. 2 years ago I was able to go and I considered it one of the biggest accomplishments in my life.

During my tour in Maine, I found out that Stephen King and his wife Tabitha donate a lot of money and time to Bangor. The most touching thing is that they refuse to have it publicized.

Stephen King is not only a great author, but he is also a great man.
