Success Stories

Stephen King

Take heart! Some of the greatest successes of our time were shown the door before being plucked from the crowd and then became household names! Stephen King is one such name.

The Shining, The Stand, Carrie, Misery, The Green Mile, Christine. These are just some of the books written by American writer Stephen King during a career that now spans over forty years! And let’s not forget many of his books have been made into major block busting movies! Not bad for a writer who back then no one had heard of!


Stephen King started his working life as a school teacher and went on to supplement his income by writing and submitting short stories predominantly to men’s magazines such as Cavalier. Later, he started work on his first novel Carrie which he famously threw into the dustbin, such were his feelings of discouragement.  However, his wife Tabitha saw its potential, rescued it from the dustbin and encouraged him to finish it and send it off.

And the rest as they say is history…
