While Elliott wasn’t too sure about the other two boys in the group home next door, he thought Ryan was a good kid. Marie had told him Ryan’s mother was a drug addict who lived on the street half the time, going from fix to fix. No one knew who his father was, but Marie said Ryan had expressed no interest in finding out.
Ryan was very guarded. When he first met the boy, Elliott sensed the walls he threw up. Then one day, Ryan learned Elliott was a writer and expressed an interest in his work. Elliott gave him copies of a couple young adult thrillers he’d written. After reading them, Ryan had discussed them with him. He’d expressed an interest in writing and Elliott had told him to keep a journal, write down his thoughts and experiences. Elliott got the feeling the boy was so guarded because his feelings were just beneath the surface, raw and vulnerable to hurt. He knew how therapeutic it could be to write about those feelings, to drain them on the page.
Elliott Granger was a writer of horror fiction. It was the only thing he’d ever wanted to do with his life since he was eight years old. He had no problem with the fact that he was a horror writer, but so many others seemed to that he hesitated to admit it when asked, “What do you do?”
“I write for a living.”
“Oh, what do you write?”
“Novels mostly, but a short story now and then.”
“What kind of novels?”
At this point, Elliott usually had not spent enough time with the person to have any idea how they would feel about his being a horror writer, so he’d have to make a snap personality judgment, or just play it safe and say, “Thrillers, mysteries.”
“What kind of thrillers?”
He usually gave in quickly and confessed the truth. “Horror, actually, I write horror novels.”
Their true reaction did not come right away, it came a little later. First, they had to say the inevitable: “You mean, like Stephen King?”
While they did the same thing for a living, Elliott’s advances were not even in the same galaxy as Stephen King’s. This was always the first thing discussed by everyone, man, woman, and child, without exception, when they learned that Elliott wrote horror novels.
“Wow, I betcha you’d like to get some of his royalties by mistake, wouldn’tcha?”
“You could probably live well off his interest, couldn’t you?”
“You ever think of writing a book the way he does it?”
“Do you know Stephen King?”
Sometimes, Elliott felt like saying, “Of course, he comes to all the meetings,” but he never had because it was snide and unpleasant, and he tried never to be snide and unpleasant to potential readers. He had, however, tried two different answers to the question. When, in response to, “Do you know Stephen King?” he said that he’d met Stephen King, people were always friendlier to him than they were when he was honest and said no, he did not know King. So he had King to thank for that.
