Stephen King was born on September 21st, 1947 in Portland, Maine, the son of Captain Merchant Navy Donald Edward King and Nellie Ruth Pillsbury.
The American writer works in a variety of genres including horror, thriller, science fiction, fantasy, mysticism, drama. He got a nickname - "King of Horror". His books are sold more than 350 million copies, filmed by a number of art films, television productions. He has written such books as:Under the Dome, The Stand, Doctor Sleep, A Firestarter, Anger, etc.
My favourite books are «A Firestarter», «A Telephone» and « А Bag of bones». In the book "A Bag of bones" I like the main character Mike Noonan, I like that he is smart and sensible. In the book A Firestarter I like the character Andy McGee because hes caring, faithful, and he has nerves of steel.
I recommend reading all his books because each book has its mysteries and the mysterious incident.
