Stephen B King


Me – just some bits and pieces about – ME!
(Or as my wife often says: “It’s all just about you Steve isn’t it?”)

I’ve said, more than once, life is about the journey, and not the destination, and what a journey my life has been. We are the sum total of our experiences, and not what we eat, in my humble opinion, and when I start talking about my life to people – just before their eyes glaze over – they often say: “You should write a book.” So I have, several in fact.

Thrillers and crime genres have always fascinated me, and in particular, the dark world of serial killers, and while my beginnings were in the ‘Make love not war’ sentiment, I love a good, unputdownable, thriller. You know, the kind you just want to read one more chapter of, and then another, and then you realise you are late for work. Have I succeeded in creating stories that can take people to that place? Boy I hope so.

Drop me an email, and let me know if I have.

Happy reading

Who are your favorite authors?
Without doubt Stieg Larsson with his Dragon Tattoo trilogy spoke to me. His characters were incredibly drawn. My slightly more famous namesake can without doubt tell a great story too and Ive read everything he has ever written
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Two things really. My mother sadly suffered from Alzheimers and wasted away in a nursing home. Im told I have a one in four chance of going the same way so every day I can recongnise my wife is a good one. Secondly since I got back into writing it's the one thing I look forward to doing more than anything else.
