Stephen King. If only he’d write more novels! He is my favorite, I’m not too much of a snob to admit it, and I’ve made up a diminutive for him because I love his books that much. There are lots of SteKi novels I haven’t read for various reasons that became pretty clear to me when I read his fantastic book On Writing. I ran into one of them, Hearts in Atlantis and it’s been sitting in my to-read pile until yesterday. Somehow, he always speaks my mind. It’s scary. He writes scary novels. It is so fun.
