Stine lahir di Columbus, Ohio pada tanggal 8 Oktober 1943,[4] putra dari pasangan Yahudi, Anne (née Feinstein), seorang ibu rumah tangga, dan Lewis Stine, seorang pegawai perusahaan perkapalan.[5][6] Ia mulai menulis sejak berusia 9 tahun saat ia menemukan sebuah mesin tik di lotengnya, dan kemudian mulai menulis cerita pendek dan humor.[7] Stine lulus dari Ohio State University (OSU) pada tahun 1965 dengan gelar Bachelor of Arts dalam bidang Sastra Inggris.[8]

Saat berkuliah di OSU, R. L. Stine bekerja sebagai editor di majalah humor The Sundial selama tiga tahun.[2] Ia kemudian pindah ke New York City untuk mewujudkan kariernya sebagai penulis.[5]
