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.
