Hey readers! I wrote a piece for YA author Shannon A. Thompson's blog. (And she wrote a super-awesome intro for me! Thank you, Shannon!) How many of you out there read RL Stine's Goosebumps books at some point in your life?
A lot of you?
Awesome. Then you'll love this article.
Here's a quick excerpt/link:
I remember how Night of the Living Dummy made me afraid to get up in the middle of the night because I knew that Slappy would be sitting at the top of the steps, waiting for me. I’ll never forget that moment when I hit the end of Stay Out of the Basement and the big twist made my stomach feel like it was full of ice. These books left me scarred, because even though I knew they were fiction, they took root in my mind and always threatened to crawl off the page and into reality.
