    Stephen Edward King was born in fall 1947 in the American state Maine, in Portland. That the boy was born may be called a miracle – Nellie Ruth Pillsbury, the future writer’s mother, was diagnosed with infertility. When the woman married for the second time, her husband Donald Edwin King, the captain of the merchant ship, and she made a decision to adopt a boy. They called their foster son David Victor. In two years, Nellie surprisingly got pregnant, and the couple’s second child Stephen Edwin was born. However, the child together could not make his parents’ marriage stronger. The father had a reputation of a womanizer. As a seaman, he was traveling all over the world. After the Second World War, he retired from the navy and started working as a commercial agent selling vacuum cleaners. The family life burdened him. When Stephen was 2, the father disappeared from his life – the man left the house to buy cigarettes and got lost. The mother explained to the sons that their father was...

    Since that moment, Stephen King has been creating without stopping. His novella based on the movie “The Pit and the Pendulum” became his first “bestseller” – the young man printed out 40 copies of his work with a hectograph. In 1959, 18-year -old Stephen and his brother David began to publish the newsletter “Dave’s Sheet.” The young men distributed it with the old mimeograph and sold for 5 cents to their friends, neighbors, and relatives. David was writing about the local news while Steve was creating movie reviews and his own short stories. At that time, Stephen read Howard Phillips Lovecraft’s books – he became the boy’s favorite writer. As he admitted, having read the ominous stories of the collection “The Lurker at the Threshold,” he had the feeling of coming back home. At high school, King could not decide what to do next: to apply for a university or volunteer to Vietnam to collect interesting facts for his future work. He had no doubts that his further life would be connected...

    As it has been mentioned above, the novelist met his future wife Tabitha Spruce at the university. In those harsh years, their children Joseph and Naomi were born. Later, the second son Owen was born. Tabitha is also familiar with literature – she tried to write, but her nine novels were not successful. Stephen King’s personal life has been happy. Together with his wife, he overcame many difficulties: at the beginning of their life together, it was poverty; later, it was the novelist’s alcohol and drug addiction. In 1999, in one of the satirical newspaper, there was a letter allegedly written by Stephen King. In this letter, he admitted that the period when he was working on the novel “The Tommyknockers” fell out of his memory. As it turned out, the 1980s were actually marred by King’s addiction to drinking and drugs. To persuade the writer who denied his bad habits that he needed medical help, his relatives collected evidence: they threw out the trash beer cans, empty valium, cocai...
