I just finished reading this article in the physical Parade magazine in the Sunday paper:
This is why I still respect and admire Stephen King so much: he’s still writing, still doing what he loves, and doesn’t care what anyone thinks of him “as long as the checks don’t bounce”. He’s passed on his values to his children successfully, and both of his sons are published authors. Dedicated writer, family man, strong literary values – that’s what I want for myself. It’s a good interview; I’ve always been sucked in by the way King talks, and there’s some bonus material at the link.
