    I think it would be around 1979 or 1980 and I was reading Pet Sematary I think and my father sometimes ask if he could have a look at what I'm reading and he looked at the book by Stephen King and read the brief biography of him and said like,"I've been to Maine," and that was it. And the reason I started reading King was because of Salem's Lot mini-series back in the 1970's. The I read the Shining because we went to see the movie in 1980 because of was part of the film appreciation group at the end of year activities. And then I liked his writing and continued reading him. I like the characters in his books. He don't write like a snob.

    At nine I was reading stuff like Encyclopedia Brown mysteries or doing Adlibs, LOL. That's impressive you were reading at an advanced level. Did it scare you?

    I was probably hip deep in The Hardy Boys Mysteries, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, all sorts of stuff.. as an aside I read the last of the really great whangdoodles by Julie Edwards real name Julie Andrews of Mary Poppins fame. It's funny, there are creatures with strange names in it and the human kids are named Potter.. being British, I TheLastOfTheReallyGreatWhangdoodles.jpg wonder if that was an influence on JK Rowling and her Harry Potter series, with the strange names that she used for animals and other things..
