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.
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.
