Wonderful Writers is a weekly segment that is posted on Wednesday! Every week I’ll spotlight and discuss one of my favorite authors, books by them, and talk about their writing styles and such. I hope you’ll enjoy. Feel free to participate as well by writing your own post and as always you are welcome to use the meme/pic if you’d like (just remember to credit me).

Why He’s a Wonderful Writer:
I cannot tell you how much I loved to read Goosebumps as kid! I’ve been a fan of horror since I could remember. Stine was my first early exposure to horror novels. His books have strong plot lines, a wide variety of characters, and are full of many scary things that go bump in the night. Some of my favorite books from the Goosebumps series are: Monster Blood, Night of the Living Dummy, and The Cuckoo Clock of Doom. Stine is truly one of the masters of the horror genre!
