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.
