His father was born under the surname "Pollock", but used the last name "King"...
“ the 'King' of authors (pun intended).
I had at one time over 25 of his novels,
(but due to moving, divorce, etc; I have just a few left).
now, I cherish this book; 'on writing/2000' which basically explains why he writes what he does.
Mr. King appears to be a very uncomplicated man, that is most relaxed within himself when he is in a 'story-telling' mood.
his quote: " if you don't have the time to read,
you don't have the time or tools to write."
he is by far, the best ever at what he does... ” - gahollywoodkiss

“ saying 'Lorne Michaels' name is like mentioning TV royalty. responsible for what is now the longest comedy program ever in 'Saturday Night Live'; 37yrs, 618+ episodes.
not to mention the hundreds of other programs he is involved with.
if Mr. Michaels was a horse, he'd be a Clydesdale;
the hardest working horse alive... ” - gahollywoodkiss

“ Mr. Hughes was an incredible writer and visionary.

he would always 'pen-out' a winner.

While film-makers like Spielberg cut their teeth making 8 mm films, Anderson cut his teeth shooting films on video and editing them from V.C.R. to V.C.R...
