R.L. Stine is one of the best-selling children’s authors in history. In July 1992, Scholastic introduced his Goosebumps book series with Welcome to Dead House. Nearly twenty-five years later, Goosebumps is now one of the best-selling children’s series of all-time—with more than 350 million English language books in print, plus an additional 50+ million international copies in print in 32 languages. The Goosebumps series made R.L. Stine a worldwide publishing celebrity (and “Jeopardy” answer). His other popular children’s book series include Fear Street, (recently revived with all new books), Mostly Ghostly, The Nightmare Room, and Rotten School. Other titles include: It’s The First Day of School Forever, A Midsummer Night’s Scream, Young Scrooge, and his first picture book, with Marc Brown—The Little Shop of Monsters. Stine and Brown’s second picture book, Mary Scary, has also been published. The “Goosebumps” TV show was the number-one children’s show in America for three years. The episodes can still be seen on Netflix. More recently, R.L.’s anthology TV series, R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour, won the Emmy Award three years in a row as Best Children’s Show. Goosebumps, a feature film starring Jack Black, based on the book series by R.L. Stine, was released in theaters October 16, 2015, and opened #1 at the box office. R.L. Stine lives in New York City with his wife Jane, an editor and publisher. You can connect with him on Twitter @RL_Stine. Also Facebook: http://facebook.com/rlstine.
