My Interview With Owen King

Posted: September 27, 2017, 01:00
Today is the release day for Sleeping Beauties by Stephen and Owen King. It’s also the start of their tour to promote the book.

I got a chance to talk to Owen about the book and how he and Stephen wrote it. You can see what he had to say here.

The genesis was just a one sentence pitch that I made to my dad: "What if all the women in the world fell asleep?" I wanted him to take the idea and run with it. The notion struck me as one that you could make a hell of a disturbing meal out of, and that's kind of his specialty, whereas most of my own writing to that point had been pretty mainstream. He was very insistent that I should write it, though. Eventually, we compromised and wrote it together.
