In September of 2012, I had the honor and privilege of interviewing author Stephen Spignesi, who is known as “the world’s leading authority on Stephen King”, according to Entertainment Weekly magazine, and several other reputable publications. My interview covered Mr. Spignesi’s life growing up in Connecticut, his school years, becoming a college professor, his writing career, and his love for The Beatles, and of course, writer Stephen King. The interview was truly memorable for me, and a friendship was born.

Ask any die hard fan of Stephen King, one of the worlds greatest writers of all time, what their favorite book is, and of course the answers you get will vary. Some will say, IT, others might say, PET SEMATARY, or THE SHINING, or you might get another answer being that there are 60 other book titles he has written. However, the most consecutive answer you are likely hear is: THE STAND.

The Stephen King “It’s A Dollar Baby”, film program has been around since the late 1970′s. This program allows Independent filmmakers to direct a film adaptation based on one of Stephen King short stories. Director, Billy Hanson, took part in this program with his version of the Stephen King short story, SURVIVOR TYPE. This film was quite impressive, and has won many film awards.

Trends come and go, but one of the most recent seems to be sticking around and is popular among adults. I’m talking about coloring books… for adults! Yes, that childhood pastime has returned, but this time it’s with themes that appeal to the nature of us grownups, and with a vast variety of subjects, this new market has opened the door for many artists and illustrators, allowing them as well, the opportunity to do something fun and whimsical with their art.
