How many books has Stephen King sold?
350 mil max on wikipedia under "stephen king" aka 16th most of all time impressive!
King favors a "free" style of writing. Instead of planning out all aspects of a story, he comes up with a "seed" of the tale and lets it grow on it's own. He has said that he often doesn't know the end of one of his books until it's finished. He is most known for his contributions to the horror genre, and to date has sold over 250 million books.
