(Kevin Christopher McFadden)
USA flag (b.1954)

Christopher Pike is the pseudonym of American author Kevin Christopher McFadden.  He is a bestselling author of young adult and children's fiction McFadden was born in New York City in 1955, but grew up in California. He attended college briefly before dropping out and working various jobs such as house painting and computer programming. He initially tried his hand at writing science fiction and adult mystery, but later began writing teen thrillers due to an editor's suggestion. His first attempt resulted in the 1985 novel Slumber Party, a book about a group of teenagers who run into bizarre and violent events during a ski weekend. The book was an immediate success and Pike's career as a Young Adult author took off. In addition to his Young Adult novels, he has written several Juvenile novels under the Spooksville series title, as well as several adult novels such as his 1990 hit book, Sati. Though their peak popularity reigned at the same time, Pike was commonly heralded as the author R.L. Stine's Goosebumps and Fear Street readers turned to for a more mature novel, sitting as the middle ground with Stephen King the level above Pike. On November 25, 1996, his book Fall into Darkness was adapted into a television movie of the same name, produced by his company Christopher Pike Productions.
