R.L. Stine Author of the internationally bestselling Goosebumps series

About the Author

R.L. Stine has been writing horror stories and scaring young readers for over thirty years. His bestselling Goosebumps series quickly became a publishing phenomenon and his books came to define horror for a generation of avid young readers. The Goosebumps series has sold more than 400 million copies in the United States and The Guinness Book of World Records cited Stine as the bestselling series author in history.

Stine began his career at Scholastic and started writing joke books and humor books under the name Jovial Bob Stine. He published his first teen horror novel, Blind Date, in 1986, followed by the Fear Street series in 1989, which quickly became the best-selling YA series in history. When the Goosebumps series began in 1992, Stine became a worldwide publishing celebrity and the series was soon adapted for television, becoming the number one kids’ show in America for three years in a row.

In 2015, The Goosebumps Movie, starring Jack Black as Stine, was released by Sony and Columbia Pictures. Featuring forty monsters from the Goosebumps books as well as the infamous Slappy, the evil dummy, it quickly became the #1 film in the United States. Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween was released in 2018 and the first of three films based on Stine’s Fear Street series is currently in production and is slated for a 2020 release.

With many of Goosebumps’ original fans now well into adulthood, Stine has published numerous novels for adults, including Superstitious, The Sitter, Eye Candy, and Red Rain. Stine is a three-time recipient of both the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards and the Disney Adventures Kids’ Choice Award. He also won the Thriller Writers of America Silver Bullet Award in 2007 and the Horror Writers Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2014. Stine lives in New York City with his wife.
