R.L. Stine vs. Iceland Volcano

RlstineYou know I love writing scary stories. But I don’t like it when the scary stories happen to ME!

My wife Jane and I went to London for a short vacation that turned out to be longer than we planned. Yes, the Iceland volcano erupted, the airports all closed, and we were stranded in London for days.
Not a bad place to be stranded. But the idea of not being able to go home when we wanted was very scary.

So, now I’m finally home and getting excited about the Summer Challenge Ultimate Author Showdown Webcast. Having faced down a spewing volcano, I’m ready to face down the other contestants. I’m ready to face the unexpected and unpredictable. Bring it on!

WHEN: Friday, April 30th, 2010 at 1:00pm (ET)/10:00am (PT)
WHO:

  • Christopher Paul Curtis, author of Elijah of Buxton, Bud Not Buddy, and The Watsons Go to Birmingham.
  • Gordon Korman, author of The 39 Clues: One False Note, Swindle, and Zoobreak
  • Lisa Yee, author of Millicent Min, Girl Genius, and Stanford Wong Flunks Big Time
  • and me, R.L. Stine

I’ll be there. Will you?

    I think his books are funny, and sometimes, they give me the shills. My brother “likes” the one with the rabbit that has the red eyes. At least, I think that’s what it is… But anyway, it says it gives him nightmares. So we make fun of him, by putting it on his bed at night, and scaring him when he wakes up in the morning.

    I liked the webcast. You authors are awesome READERS as well as writers! I can’t BELIEVE you pulled such a mean trick on Lisa Yee. You are the best and she is a great sport. The audience and classroom safety lines were fabuloso!!
    Do another trivia!!!!
