Take 10 minutes and read this

27 Jul

Not this post (it shouldn’t take you 10 minutes, for sure), this biography. It’s on Jaclyn’s favorite author ever, Steve King. Fabulous details include:

  • After he healed from being struck by a van that shattered his hip and collapsed his lung — among other injuries — Steve bought the van that hit him — so it wouldn’t wind up on eBay — beat the crap out of it with a bat, and had the van destroyed at a junk yard.
  • Once at a bookstore in Australia, Steve started picking up his books and signing them. A customer told the owner that someone was vandalizing the books.
  • Steve has three grandkids. Best. Grandfather. Ever. Seriously, who else would you rather have tell you a bedtime story??

    Anyone else. I think I would like anyone other than Stephen King to tell me a story before shutting off the lights and leaving me alone in the dark for 8 hours. 🙂

    Snap, Crackle, Pop says: HAHAHAHAHHAA! Awww, it’s just the dark 🙂 As Dumbledore says, it’s not the dark we’re afraid of, but the unknown.

I'd love to hear what you think!
