Author Stephen King poses at Dodd Hall at FSU. I had very little time with him as his escort, Mark Winegardner, was reminding me that we had no time. I told him that I had image Googled him and in the many photos I saw that he had posed for, there were none of him lighted from below in the manner one might light a villian. He said there was a reason for that, he didn't let people light him that way.

Not being a fan of horror stories I was only familiar with him by reputation. Afterward I Googled him and learned about the terrible encounter he had with a reckless van, sustaining very serious injuries. I then remembered that he walked with a limp. In the portrait you can see the scar on the back of his hand from the running over he survived.
