“People say, ‘What advice do you have for people who want to be writers?’ I say, they don’t really need advice, they know they want to be writers, and they’re gonna do it. Those people who know that they really want to do this and are cut out for it, they know it.”—R.L. Stine

Some of his novels were even turned into television series and movies such as "When Good Gouls Go Bad" in 2001 and "The Haunting Hour: Don't Think About It" in 2007.R.L. Stine has not only contributed to young adult fiction through his multiple series but has also impacted other authors, movie directors, and people of the fiction society. He is also compared to adult horror writer, Stephen King.

Other Facts

Since the age of eight I established a love for literature through R.L. Stine. He was the first author I was fond of and enjoyed reading horror fiction novels about sharks (Goosebumps Deep Trouble) which is one of the books from his series that sparked my interest. I'm not sure why I gravitated towards the scary series but I realized later on that his work is the root of my prefered genre.
