Author Stephen King Dead At 64.
Only one person has sold more books in the last 30 years than Stephen King…. and that’s God. (the bible)
Perhaps the premier author of our time passed away quietly in his Maine home Monday morning of a rare form of cancer of the brain commonly known as Captain Trips.
King rose to fame in the late 1970’s as a horror and fantasy writer, and has written more than 50 books since, selling more than 350 million copies world wide.
King is survived by his wife Tabitha, also a noted author, and his two children, Owen and Naomi, a minister.
In a statement issued Monday morning, King’s agent said the author passed with his family present, and thanked his fans for their loyalty and support for the family during the illness.
