About R.L. Stine

R.L. Stine is one of the best-selling children's authors in history. In July 1992, Scholastic introduced a monthly book series by R.L. Stine called Goosebumps with Goosebumps: Welcome to the Dead House. Twenty 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), and Goosebumps was named the world's bestselling book series of all time in the 2003 Guinness Book of World Records. His other popular children’s book series include Fear Street, Mostly Ghostly, The Nightmare Room, and Rotten School.

2014 marked the 22nd anniversary of Goosebumps, which means that he has frightened several generations of kids. Many of his original readers are now in their twenties and thirties and have been enjoying his adult novels, which include Red Rain and Superstitious.
