R.L. Stine started out writing jokes and funny stories.
In the mid-80's, he published Blind Date, his first horror novel for young adults. He launched his popular Fear Street book series three years later. Beginning in 1992, Stine found international acclaim writing the Goosebumps series, which spurred the creation of additional series and nearly 200 books.
The movie Goosebumps 2 comes out on DVD and Blu-Ray January 15 and R.L. called into the Jolt to talk with Jim Monaghan and John Hodorovych on the success of the books and his thoughts about the movie.
