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.
Stephen King loves scaring people, but one student at University of Massachusetts Lowell tried to find out Friday what scares him.
Dubus, who joined King on another UMass Lowell stage later Friday for a talk before an audience of 3,000, said the earlier lecture meant a lot.
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."
