R.L. Stine

His spine-tingling stories for young audiences have made R.L. Stine a best-selling writer. Born in 1943 as Robert Lawrence Stine in Columbus, Ohio, he moved to New York after graduating from Ohio State University. He worked in New York as an editor and writer, including a stint at Scholastic, Inc. working on children's magazines. While employed at Scholastic, he wrote humorous children's books using the pen name Jovial Bob Stine. After he lost his job at Scholastic, Stine became a full-time writer, creating horror novels for young adults. He started his wildly popular Goosebumps series for children in 1992. Goosebumps was turned into a television series. Stine's hundreds of horror novels, plus joke books and game books have sold over 400 million copies. The Guinness Book of World Records named Stine as the best-selling children's book series author of all time. Stine also won the Thriller Writers of America Silver Bullet Award and the Horror Writers Association Lifetime Achievement Award.
