Stephen King

Stephen King was born in Portland, Maine in 1947. Parts of his childhood were spent in Fort Wayne, Indiana and in Stratford, Connecticut.

Stephen attended the grammar school in Durham and then Lisbon Falls High School, graduating in 1966. From his sophomore year at the University of Maine at Orono, he wrote a weekly column for the school newspaper, The Maine Campus. He was also active in student politics, serving as a member of the Student Senate. He graduated from the University of Maine at Orono in 1970, with a B.A. in English and qualified to teach on the high school level.

He and Tabitha Spruce married in January of 1971. He met Tabitha in the stacks of the Fogler Library at the University of Maine at Orono, where they both worked as students. As Stephen was unable to find placement as a teacher immediately, the Kings lived on his earnings as a laborer at an industrial laundry, and her student loan and savings, with an occasional boost from a short story sale to men's magazines.

Stephen made his first professional short story sale ("The Glass Floor") to Startling Mystery Stories in 1967. Throughout the early years of his marriage, he continued to sell stories to men's magazines. Many of these were later gathered into the Night Shift collection or appeared in other anthologies.

In the fall of 1971, Stephen began teaching high school English classes at Hampden Academy, the public high school in Hampden, Maine. Writing in the evenings and on the weekends, he continued to produce short stories and to work on novels.

In the spring of 1973, Doubleday & Co. accepted the novel Carrie for publication. That year, Stephen learned that a major paperback sale would provide him with the means to leave teaching and write full-time. Carrie was published in the spring of 1974 and King has been writing ever since.

Stephen and Tabitha now spend winters in Florida and the remainder of the year at their Bangor and Center Lovell homes. They have three children: Naomi Rachel, Joe Hill and Owen Phillip, and four grandchildren. Stephen and Tabitha provide scholarships for local high school students and contribute to many other local and national charities.
