Stephen King was one of the authors that inspired me to become a writer in my own right. Four Past Midnight was the first book of his that I ever read and since then I have been hooked. More Specifically, The Langoliers is what turned the screw. In later years, I would read Everything’s Eventual and The Man in the Dark Suite. Needless to say Stephen King is a writer I look up to and if I ever could be half as good a writer as he is, well, then I think I could honestly say I accomplished something.
