It is not official or authorized and it has a lot of misinformation.
I have Beahm's book. I also have The Stephen King Story, also by Beahm. Better to stick with what SK has actually written, however, such as, Dance Macabre and On Writing. Also, the Forwards of many of his books usually contain a wealth of personal information. SK hiring someone to write his autobiography is like The Beatles hiring another band to record "Hey Jude." Not cool.

Perhaps I am in the wrong thread. I have had a 'sample' book pop up on the Kindle.
I don't know if this has been mentioned elsewhere.

'Haunted Heart' - the lives and times of Stephen King. - Lisa Rogak. I sampled a bit of it.
I don't know anything about the book or the author.

I sort of feel weird reading the sample. I doubt it was authorized, and will not purchase it - unless Ms. Mod Moderator (or others, Hi Bev Vincent!) can say who Lisa Rogak is, and it has been approved.

I'm fairly certain that Marsha had previously mentioned that this has not been authorised by Stephen.

I thought it was a good book.

I read the Lisa Rogak book. I remember a part where she said that she was talking to King's P.A., asking if she could have meeting with King and King was in the next room listening. I don't know if that is true.
