I love to read and celebrate writing, so I’ve learned about some of my favorite authors. This month we celebrate the birthdays and accomplishments of Roald Dahl, Agatha Christie, and Stephen King. What a mix, right? It may be that September birthdays may be all they have in common? Or not? What do you know and like about these authors? What have you read that was written by any of them that you would recommend?

Most people recognize this author’s books-turned-movies, but haven’t read the books. Sad because the books are much better when compared to the movies. No doubt you’ve seen the movies: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach. Matilda, and the Fantastic Mr. Fox. Roald Dahl’s birthday is September 13, 1916.
Do you know which author from the late 1800s became, and remains, the best-selling novelist of all time? She wrote the world’s longest running play: The Mousetrap. She wrote 78 mystery novels, 19 plays, and more than 100 short stories. Agatha Christie wrote an average of two novels a year for most of her life. She also wrote six romance novels under a pen name. Her list also includes two poetry books, a children’s book, and two autobiographies. Her books have sold more than a billion copies in the English language and another billion in translation. Reading about her accomplishments kind of makes me feel like an underachiever. Happy birthday, Agatha Christie – September 15, 1890.
Let the underachieving feelings continue with the final featured author: Stephen King, American horror, supernatural fiction, suspense, science fiction, and fantasy novel author with 60 novels, 5 nonfictions, 200 short stories published in compilations, which sold more than 350 million copies worldwide. Many books were adapted into feature films, miniseries, television series, and even comic books. He’s written screenplays, too. Happy Birthday, Stephen King – September 21, 1947.
