Of the five people in the immediate King family, four of them are authors. Tabitha King, Stephenâs wife, has seven published novels. Joe, their oldest son, followed in his dadâs footsteps and is a horror writer (I really like his books, for what itâs worth). Youngest child Owen has written a collection of short stories and one novella (and he married a writer). Naomi, the only King daughter, is a minister and gay activist.
