Writers who parents are writers (King and Hill)

Horns - Joe Hill Heart-Shaped Box - Joe Hill Locke & Key: Guide to the Known Keys - Joe Hill, Gabriel Rodríguez Misery - Stephen King The Dark Half - Stephen King The Eyes of the Dragon - Stephen King One on One - Tabitha King The Trap - Tabitha King Survivor - Tabitha King

The movie Horns came out and it is pretty good. 


So that's got me interested in Joe Hill and his book Horns that the movie based on. 


For those who knew already, Joe Hill is the pen name for Joseph Hillstrom King, the son of Stephen King and Tabitha King. 

So, the son who see his parents as  writers, also goes into the profession himself. Without using his real name.


Is that a way to test the water, and see if he could make it on his own without being under the shadow of his father success? 


Don't know. I would give Horns book a try and see how good a writer it is.


I didn't read a lot of parent/child writers pair. So this is relatively interesting thing for me. 




Just been informed that Stephen King's spouse Tabitha King is also a pretty good writer.
