One of the most prolific and popular authors in the world today, Stephen King has become part of pop culture history. His best-selling novels such as "Carrie," "It," "Christine," and many others have captured the imaginations of millions of readers. But who is the man behind those tales of horror, grief, and the supernatural? Where do these ideas come from? And what drives him to keep writing at a breakneck pace after a thirty year career?

In this unauthorized biography, Lisa Rogak reveals the troubled background and lifelong fears that inspire one of the twentieth century''s most influential authors. Despite his dark and disturbing work, Stephen King has become revered by critics and his countless fans as an all-American voice more akin to Mark Twain than H. P. Lovecraft. "Haunted Heart" chronicles his story, revealing the character of a man who has created some of the most memorable---and frightening---stories found in literature today.

In this unauthorized biography, Lisa Rogak reveals the troubled background and lifelong fears that inspire one of the twentieth century's most influential authors. Despite his dark and disturbing work, Stephen King has become revered by critics and his countless fans as an all-American voice more akin to Mark Twain than H. P. Lovecraft. Haunted Heart chronicles his story, revealing the character of a man who has created some of the most memorable---and frightening---stories found in literature today.

Annotation:
A fascinating figure who spans popular cultural and literature, Stephen King is perhaps the most prolific and successful American author of his day. A household name, King's work defined 20th-century horror fiction. Biographer Lisa Rogak (who has also penned books about Dan Brown and Shel Silverstein) aims high with HAUNTED HEART, but King seems to be almost working against her. This is an unauthorized biography, which means she did not have access to certain aspects of the writer's life, but it also means that Rogak is uninhibited by her subject's eye. Writing about King's complicated personal history, Rogak explores her interpretations of what this complex and unquestionably talented writer is all about.
