King – now in college – goes for a degree in teaching as a plan B. He then meets his wife Tabitha. They have 3 kids. His first novel Carrie was where his career started, almost throwing it out; giving up. His wife told him to take it out of the trash, to revise it, and give it another go for the publisher to see. “And whenever I see a first novel dedicated to a wife (or a husband), I smile and think, there’s someone who knows. Writing is a lonely job. Having someone who believes in you makes a lot of difference” (King 74).
