As an actor, King has appeared in Knightriders (1981), Creepshow (1982), Maximum Overdrive (1986) and Creepshow II (1988). He was the creator and writer of the TV miniseries The Stand (1994).

Having read horror and science fiction from an early age, King had developed an intuitive sense of what readers enjoy in a good horror novel. He uses abrupt plot twists for shock value and loves to create imaginary worlds where his characters no longer control their environment. In a Stephen King novel, the characters are completely at the mercy of others, whether those “others” are dark supernatural forces, strange monsters, flesh and blood villains or demons from within themselves.

Among his other interests, King occasionally finds time to play guitar in a rock band called the Rock Bottom Remainders, which is composed entirely of fellow authors, including humorist and columnist Dave Berry and Amy Tan.
