Meet the Author

R. L. Stine
R. L. Stine
Robert Lawrence Stine began career as an author writing short stories and joke books -- but in the early 1990's, he introduced the wildly popular Goosebumps series. The books sold millions of copies, and made reading frighteningly fun again for kids.

Biography

Goosebumps cast a spell upon children by transforming even the most reluctant students into avid readers. Despite the fact that almost every book has a different collection of characters, the series has one common element that kids can't get enough of: the author!

However believable his plots seem to his readers, Stine insists he has never lived one of his stories. "I've never turned into a bee -- I've never been chased by a mummy or met a ghost. But many of the ideas in my books are suggested by real life. For example, one Halloween my son, Matt, put a mask on and then had trouble pulling it off. That gave me the idea for The Haunted Mask."

Although he never experienced terror first hand, he did enjoy reading about it. "When I was a kid, there were these great comic books called Tales From The Crypt and The Vault of Horror. They were gruesome. I discovered them in the barbershop and thought they were fabulous. I used to get a haircut every Saturday so I wouldn't miss any of these comic books. I had no hair at all when I was a kid!"

His ideas came from two sources: his memory and his imagination. "When I write, I try to think back to what I was afraid of or what was scary to me, and try to put those feelings into books." He also keeps a tribal mask and a skeleton hanging in his writing studio to provide eerie surroundings. Although he handles the writing by himself, Stine says he gets "lots of help from my editors, my readers, and my friends."

Kids reading Goosebumps may be looking for a scare, but the laughs they get are no accident. Before he was R. L., he was Jovial Bob, author of such works as 101 Silly Monster Jokes, and Bozos on Patrol and editor of Bananas magazine. His ability to know what kids will laugh at , as well as what will frighten them, makes the Goosebumps series all the more enjoyable for his readers.

Stine started writing when he was 9 years old! He would write stories and jokes on an old typewriter and hand them out at school. "The teacher would grab them and take them away," Stine says, "but I kept doing it." He wrote for his high school newspaper in Columbus Ohio. After graduating from Ohio State University, he moved to New York City, where he worked on a variety of writing jobs.

Although his books are fun and exciting, writing them is serious stuff. He treats writing "...like a job." To unwind after work he enjoys playing the pinball machine conveniently located in his own apartment.

For aspiring authors, Stine feels reading is as important as writing. He offers this advice: "If you want to be a writer, don't worry so much about writing. Read as much as you can. Read as many different writers as you can. Soak up the styles. You can learn all kinds of ways to say things." As a boy he read Norse legends, Greek myths, Edgar Allan Poe and baseball stories. "And Mad Magazine changed my life." Author biography courtesy of Scholastic, Inc.

Good To Know

In our interview with Stine, he shared some fun and fascinating facts with us:

"My first job in New York was making up fake interviews with movie and TV stars for a group of six movie magazines. I never spoke to the stars I wrote about. I wrote three-to-four "interviews" a day, all out of my imagination."

"'I've written over 300 books but I never learned to type. I use only one finger, the pointer on my left hand -- that's all. Three hundred books on one finger! The finger is very ugly now -- completely bent and curled and callused. When I show it to audiences, they can't believe it! This is my sacrifice for my art!"

"Sometimes kids show up at my country house and ask if my son Matt can come out and play. That's because they saw him mentioned in the back of my books. But they're very disappointed when he comes to the door -- because Matt is in his mid-twenties now! They were reading very old books! Matt is a musician, composer, and sound designer. You can hear his music at my web site, www.rlstine.com."

"I hope my readers get a chance to see my 4-D movie, R. L. Stine's Haunted Lighthouse. The movie stars Christopher Lloyd, Michael McKean, Lea Thompson, Weird Al, and others. You can find it playing at four parks: SeaWorld San Antonio, SeaWorld San Diego, Busch Gardens Tampa, and Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Virginia. Watch out -- you might get very wet!"

    Hit And Run

    Book Review Outline
    Book title and author: Hit And Run, R. Stine
    Title of review: Aimee's version of a review
    Number of stars (1 to 5): 4


    Introduction
    The main point is sometimes joking and pranking people isn't the right thing to do.
    Description and summary of main points
    A girl and three of her guy friends go out for a ride in one of the boy's parent's car without a license. On this ride they hit a man, killing him, and leave him on the side of the road. In the next couple of weeks someone pulls pranks on them and act like the dead man has come back to haunt them. These teens have no way of getting out of what they started.

    Evaluation
    The plot is when they hit and kill the man and someone pranks them and plays jokes on them. The person pranking them has gone out of control and threatens to pretend a hit and run on the 4 teens. One of the teens ends up in the hospital while the others are still being pranked, harassed, and threatened.

    Conclusion
    I like this book because it explains a lot about teenagers lives. It tells what they think, how they think, they think the way they do, and why they do the things they do along this ride.

    I Also Recommend:

    This Book keeps you on the edge of your seat!!

    This book is very thrilling!!! There are four main characters in this book: Eddie, Cassie, Scott, and Winks. They're all high school students trying to pass there driving tests. So they decide to take out Eddies parents Volvo. Cassie had a bad feeling about it from the very beginning. On there drive down a dark and deserted street they hit a man by the name of Brandt Tinkers. They had no clue what to do so they just left in fear. A few days later Cassie got many terrorizing phone calls and pictures of the corpse. Which made her think, "Has the corpse come back from the dead????" A good week later Winks got hit by the same Volvo they had driven the day they hit Brandt Tinkers. Is this a bad dream or just a sick joke? <BR/><BR/>I recommend this book to many young adult readers because it is very thrill seeking and has an amazing ending. The only thing bad about this book is that it lags on for a while. But for the most part it is an on the edge of your seat kind of book. So if you¿re looking for a great mystery ending, buy this book.

    You never know what will happen next

    I am a 10-year old who read this book and I loved it. I loved R.L Stine's description of Brandt Tinkers after the four teenagers ran over him. I love how he made the reader surprised in every part of the story. I would love to read another book like this. Please make a Hit and Run 2

    Great Book

    This book is a great book to read for anyone of any age! It is full of suspense and mystery, and when I read it, I kept guessing as of what would happen next. I was almost always wrong, because the way R.L. Stine writes his books leads you to think one way, when it is totally the opposite.

    A Rollercoaster ride of suspence and mystery

    At first I thought the book was boring,but when i stated reading it, it was just breathtaking.It has suspece, mystery, realistic experiences, great and sensible setting,action, humour, and good chracters. The thing that got me to read the book was the opinion of my friend. he said that the book was really good and it had him guessing the whole time. when I started reading the book I couldn't put it down. I feel that it is one of the best pices of crime fiction i have ever seen.

    They Couldn't Run Away After The Hit

    Eddie, Scott, Winks, and Cassie are four friends that were driving one night so Eddie could practice and hit someone. Now someone else knows what they did that night. They all fear that they go to jail. They don't know what to do. Who could have seen them that night?

    This book is awesome

    Do you like books? Action book are my favorite kind of books because they are enjoyable to read. I like to read books that get my attention right away or else i do not want to read that book anymore. One book that I read was 'Hit and Run.' It was one of the best books that i have ever read. 'Hit and Run' is a great action book. It was about four teenagers that hit someone while driving illegaly because they were under age. They were practicing for their driver's tests coming up. While they were driving on a deserted highway they hit a man walking across the road. They all get out of the car and look at him. Then they move him over to the side of the road and leave. They get mysterious phone calls and one of them gets hit by a car. As the story progresses they seem to be getting really scared because they think they are trying to be killed by the man they hit. They go down to the morgue to talk to one of the teenagers cousins but he said he did not know anything about a man who was hit by a car that came in. They start getting really, really scared now because now they are sure he is trying to kill them or is he? This is a very good book and I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good book.
