  • Robert Lawrence Stine began his writing career when he was nine years old and today he has achieved the position of the best-selling children's author in history. In the early 1990's, Stine was catapulted to fame when he wrote the unprecedented best-selling GOOSEBUMPS series, which sold more than 250 million copies and became a worldwide multimedia phenomenon—leading to a top-rated TV show on Fox and the all-time most successful children's video line.

    R.L. Stine is dedicated to doing everything he can to encourage literacy for kids. He was the honored guest of Governor Jeb Bush in 2001, launching Florida's statewide 'Celebration of Reading' campaign, received the first-ever Champion of Reading Award from the Free Public Library of Philadelphia, and established a writing program in the middle schools of his hometown of Columbus, Ohio.

    In Fall 2003, First Lady Laura Bush asked R.L. Stine to be part of a select group of authors to accompany her to Russia to promote literacy.

    R.L. Stine has received numerous awards of recognition including several Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards and Disney Adventures Kids' Choice Awards; and he has been selected by kids as one of their favorite authors in the National Education Association Read Across America.

    Mostly Ghostly is R.L. Stine's latest creation—a terrifyingly fun new series for middle-grade readers.
