The bestselling children's author of all time goes by two initials instead of a first name. But it's not J.K. Rowling. No, R.L. Stine stands atop the children's all-time bestseller's list. He has nearly 300 million Goosebumps, Fear Street, Fear Street Seniors and Blind Date books in print. After a six-year break, the 56-year-old Stine has scared up a new series for 8- to 12-year-olds: The Nightmare Room, which puts an eerie spin on everyday situations.

If you've raised kids in the last 15 years or so, you've probably taken a trip or two into the scary (but not overwhelmingly so) mind of the writer R.L. Stine. Stine's “Goosebumps” series is a collection of ghost and horror stories for young children. Since Stine published the first “Goosebumps” in 1992, it's become the first book series many parents purchase for their kids. Now “Goosebumps” is set for the silver screen, with Jack Black starring and a March 2016 release date.

It was a cold February night in New York. Homeless men in rags huddled over heating grates while inside a modest apartment on Manhattan's Upper West Side, a slight balding man with bushy eyebrows was sucking in mouthfuls of cool air. It wasn't the weather that had this famous children's author shivering in his bed. It was fear--the blinding white, bone-chilling, teeth-chattering fear that comes with the realization that everything you ever knew and believed just might be wrong. Dead wrong.

Scholastic Corp., the U.S. publisher of the Harry Potter books, agreed to pay $9.65 million for the rights to the "Goosebumps" series, ending years of litigation with author R.L. Stine and Parachute Press Inc. Scholastic's 1999 lawsuit claimed that "Goosebumps" owner Parachute was using ghostwriters on some books. Parachute in turn accused Scholastic of not making payments and selling some books without permission.
