Name check!

I’m told that in Stephen King’s new novel, DUMA KEY, there’s a passing reference to an article authored by one M. Rickert.

    “In the three months following her accident, much of it spent in bed, she had done literally hundreds of watercolors, turning them out at a rate John Eastlake and the other girls found a little frightening. (If “Nan Melda” had an opinion, it wasn’t offered in print.) Eastlake tried to slow her down — on doctor’s orders — but this was counterproductive. It caused fretfulness, crying fits, insomnia, bouts of fever. Baby Elizabeth said when she couldn’t draw or paint, “her head hurted.” Her father said that when she did paint, “She ate like one of the horses she liked to draw.” The article’s author, one M. Rickert, seemed to find this endearing. Recalling my own eating binges, I found it all too familiar.”
