LOWELL, MASS. (AP) - Novelist Stephen King has told creative writing students at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell that his goal is to write stories that sizzle with emotion.
The horror-master from Maine is the author of books such as “The Stand,” “The Shining” and “The Green Mile.”
King told the crowd of about 125 students that he’s a “confrontational writer.” He says he wants to “get within kissing distance, hugging distance, choking distance, punching distance. Call it whatever you want. But I want your attention.”
He has two new books coming out in 2013, including a sequel to “The Shining” called “Doctor Sleep.”
