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.
