Welcome to the third in my series of Author of Influence posts. I’ve told you a bit about how each Meg Cabot and Christopher Moore have influenced my writing style. Today, I’m here to talk about Stephen King.
King, one of the most well-known names in horror, has written more than 50 books, several of which have been made into movies or adapted for television. Some of his most popular include Carrie (which also happened to be his first published novel), It, and Misery.
So far, I’ve only recommended one of King’s books here–On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft. That’s something I intend to fix; I have a recommendation for It planned later this month, and I hope to re-read a few of King’s books over the next year so that I can introduce you to more.
That said, I don’t need to direct you toward recommendations to tell you about how King has affected my writing.
