Stephen King

I’m going to hold up my hands and admit to a great liking for Stephen King.  I’m currently ploughing my way through ‘Doctor Sleep‘, the sequel to ‘The Shining’ and while it’s cheesy and melodramatic in parts, it’s also absolutely gripping.

Hyperbole aside, he is the Charles Dickens de nos jours.  An epic storyteller who manipulates his readers and tugs at the heartstrings, just like a proper writer is meant to.
