Me and Stephen King….
What book changed your world? For me, it was Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot. It scared the heck out of me and it was the first time I realized the power of words. Mind you, I’d have been grounded for a month for reading King at 13, but I hid what I was reading from my parents. Once I was in the back of the car under a blanket reading that book and has to close it because I was so frightened. Yet I kept reading the story. I can still visualize the creepy devil guy in my mind. That was 42 years ago. 42! OMG I just realized that.
This was not the start of a writing career but becoming and avid reader…like my mother.
So readers… what’s your life changing book?
