Hey everybody. I'm a writer and mum from Melbourne. My gateway King book was Pet Sematary, which I read when I was twelve, and I loved it. My favourite King book? That's a toss-up between Full Dark, No Stars and Cell. I read pretty much anything as long as it's good, and my other favourite books are The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenedes, Perfume by Patrick Suskind, The Lovely Bones by Alice Seabold, and A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess. I've self-published three books of my own and King, along with Eugenedes and Dickens, is a major influence.

Thanks so much for the warm welcome, everyone! Sorry it's taken me so long to respond but cold and flu season hit me pretty hard this year. Oh, and I've finally gotten around to posting in the Self Promotion forum. I'm going to check out some of the other forums now; so excited!

Your gateway book? You make it sound like King is a drug - ummm - wait a second there - I think you've hit upon something! :icon_eek::idea:
