Author Spotlight: Steven King There are many great writers out there that have made their way into just about every household, store, and library. There are names that are synonymous with literature, names like Shakespear, Twain, Tolkien, and Dickenson. However, many of these classic writers are just that, they are classic and they are established in another time. That’s not to say that more modern writers have not made their way into the spotlight. Today we think of names like Rowling, Martin, and the focus of my writing today, the great Stephen King.
