During his European book tour, King took some time to visit some of the troops at Ramstein Air Base.
From Stars and Stripes:
If he was anxious in front of the capacity crowd inside the Hercules Theater, King never let on. He captivated the more than 350 spectators, regaling them for 90 minutes with comical stories about his life and experiences that sprung ideas for some of his most well-known fictional antagonists, from “Cujo” the rabid dog to Pennywise, the evil clown from “It,” the latter whom King dreamed up while driving over a bridge. King also read several excerpts from “Doctor Sleep,” his latest novel in which he brings back Danny Torrance, the young boy with psychic powers from one of his scariest yarns, “The Shining.”
