Many of his books have been adapted into successful movies at the box office. One of his more recent works, Under the Dome, has been adapted into a successful television series. My personal all-time favorite is Stephen's second novel Salem's Lot.

Sometime later for reasons unclear, Donald changed his name to King before marrying Stephen's mother Nellie Ruth Pillsbury.
