Stephen King was born September 21, 1947, in Portland, Maine. He still lives in Maine, in the town of Bangor. He describes Bangor, in a "Playboy" article, as a "hard-working; hard drinking town". His parents are Nellie Ruth Pillsbury and Donald King. His father left when Stephen was three and has not been seen or heard from since. In 1971, Stephen married Tabitha Spruce. They have three children: Naomi, Joe, and Owen Philip.

Stephen King is a best-selling author, who writes horror stories. King published his first novel, Carrie, in 1974. It would never have happened, but for Tabitha King. Stephen King was writing short stories at the time, and Carrie was getting too long. He through the manuscript away, but Tabitha rescued it from the garbage can and persuaded him to finish it.

According to King, his latest releases are actually "twins". He released Desperation and The Regulators in September of this year. There are supposedly weird parallels between these books.
