Stephen King defaces his own books at an Aussie bookstore.
He was lovely, very nice, charming," she said. "He introduced me to his friends and we had a talk and then I said 'Well, I'll leave you to the tomatoes.'
"I don't think he wanted people to know he was here but I told him that if I knew he was coming I would have baked him a cake."
Of the six books that King signed, five would be given to community groups for fund-raising auctions, she said.
The sixth was bought by the customer who mistook King for a vandal.
