Tabitha King, the wife of the widely successful horror novelist Stephen King, is an author in her own right. Her novels range from romantic to science fiction horror thrillers. Although both Kings set their stories in their home state of Maine, their writing styles are very different. King's novel, One on One, published in 1984, revolves around a high school romance between the town's hero and star athlete, Sam Reuben, and the town pariah. King wrote The Book of Reuben, the prequel to One on One and Pearl, another book on the earlier days of the Reuben family, in 1995. Titles of her other novels include The Trap, Survivor, Caretakers, and Small World. The latter is the story of a nerdy genius who invents a device that can shrink people to a height of six inches.
