Meet the Author

Stephenie Meyer graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in English literature, and she lives with her husband and three young sons in Arizona. After the publication of her debut novel, Twilight, booksellers chose her as one of the "most promising new authors of 2005" (Publishers Weekly). Look for Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn from Listening Library.

Biography

According to Stephenie Meyer, the idea for her sensational debut novel, Twilight, came to her in a vividly detailed dream in 2003. Over the course of three months, writing at night when her children were in bed, the young Mormon mother of three developed that dream into the spellbinding story of 17-year-old Bella Swan, who moves from Phoenix, Arizona, to the tiny town of Forks, Washington, and falls in love with a beautiful, mysterious vampire named Edward Cullen. After feverish writing, painstaking editing, and a brief but frustrating round of queries, submissions, and rejections, Meyer finally connected with an editor at Little, Brown who fell in love with the manuscript and signed her to a three-book deal.

Twilight debuted in October, 2005. An immediate sensation, it appeared on several year-end best books lists and earned its author a rabid cult following among teenage girls. Since then, Meyer has continued Bella and Edward's story in bestselling sequels that have proved equally successful. Young readers cannot get enough of these riveting novels -- a captivating blend of vampires, romance, and suspense -- and parents rest easy knowing the books do not contain the graphic language and sexually provocative material that pervades some YA series.

Whether or not the Twilight Saga proves to have "Harry Potter legs" remains to be seen. Meanwhile, Meyer continues writing. She forayed into adult fiction with 2008's The Host, a chilling science fiction tale about the end of humanity, told from the perspective of an alien invader. And she makes it clear the door is open for further installments in her vampire romance. Clearly, this talented author has many more stories to tell.

Good To Know

Here are some fun facts from Stephenie's "unofficial" biography on her website:
"The unusual spelling of my name was a gift from my father, Stephen ( + ie = me ). Though I have had my name spelled wrong on pretty much everything my entire life long, I must admit that it makes it easier to google myself now."

" I met my husband, Pancho (his real name is Christiaan, but no one calls him that—it's not a long story, but it is a stupid one, so I'll skip it), when I was four, but we were never anywhere close to being childhood sweethearts. In fact, though we saw each other at least weekly through church activities, I can't recall a single instance when we so much as greeted each other with a friendly wave, let alone exchanged actual words.

This may have been for the best, because when we did eventually get around to exchanging words, sixteen years after our first meeting, it only took nine months from the first "hello" to the wedding."

" I am also a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and that has a huge influence on who I am and my perspective on the world, and therefore what I write (though I have been asked more than once, 'What's a nice Mormon girl like you doing writing about vampires?')."

"I can't write without music, and my biggest muse is the [British rock] band Muse."

A transcript of the dream that inspired Twilight appears in the book as Chapter 13, "Confessions."

    Twilight Audiobooks

    I am 35 and am totally in love with this series... the story line, the characters... everything! Brilliant. I read all the books in less than 3 weeks and purchase the audiobooks to help speed the process. I was disappointed in the narration. The reader makes Bella sound like a 2 year old and nothing like Kristen Stewart portrays and even worse the tone and expression she gives Edward is aweful. She makes him sound like he is always growling, not soft and sweet as portrayed by Rob Pattinson. If you hear the audiotapes and then watch the movie, you will be pleasantly surprised...if you watch the movie then listen to the audiotapes.... you may be disenchanted. My suggestion.... watch the movie, then read the books to yourself. It helps your imagination create the actors saying the lines in the book as you read... Hope this helps.

    WOW!!!!!

    OMG! I'm 44 and my daughter is 11. She read by day and I by night. We finished four books in less then three weeks! At first I was just reading to insure the subject matter was appropriate. But you knew it was more when I hid in the basement bath with a towel under the door so she wouldn't see the light and find me before I finished the chapter I was on! My husband and youger daughter thought us to be an amusing pair. My younger daughter listed to the CD's and again we were drawn in. Other then the sound of Ilyana Kadushin reading aloud, the house has never been so quite. And oh yeah - Try the Host by Stephanie Myer - just as good!

    Addicted

    I couldn't find anything worth watching on TV and picked up Twilight. I've been addicted to Meyer ever since! My TV now sits abandoned and I've hooked my friends & family on her! I have several copies of each book so I can lend them to friends, family, and co-workers but still have mine own at all times. I re-read them several times and just can't stop. I have tried to find some other book or series to hook me like the Twilight series or The Host but all have been big disappointments. Meyer has an exceptional talent for creating characters you can relate to at any age and truly CARE about. I await anxiously for her next project and continue to enjoy her current work! My daughter and I both relate to the series as do my friends as well as hers. Men and women both. Action, romance, suspense...just like watching a good movie!

    more from this reviewer

    Such an awesome end!!

    The book Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer sparked my curiosity because, though the last in the Twilight Saga, there was so much to be amazed at and ponder throughout it. For example, what will the baby be like? Why are the Volturi bringing even the wives which they've never brought before for anything? Despite the many ponderings that you come across, there are also many surprises as well. Such as Jacob's imprint, the number of the Cullen's' friends that agree to witness for them in front of the Volturi, Bella's gift and baby Renesmee's (Ren-ez-may). I mentioned earlier Jacob's imprint, so I won't leave as to who it is unanswered. Jacob imprinted on little Renesmee, which is rather a shock in itself considering he was planning on killing her. I also said something about Bella's gift. When the Denali clan come, Eleazar (who has a gift for telling what other's gifts are) tells Edward that Bella is a definitely a mental shield. Later, after a few more of the Cullens' friends show up, Edward remembered Carlisle's comment, "It's an interesting twist. Like she's doing the exact opposite of what you can." It made him wonder if maybe Renesmee flipped Bella's gift too, and that was why, though some wouldn't let her touch them to "show" them her story, they still agreed to witness for her. It was so hard to put the book down the entire time. It was even harder to put it down when the Volturi arrived with their own witnesses as well as their wives and full guard and there was almost a fight. So, over all, the book was a spectacular ending to the series, and I hope to read more books by author Stephenie Meyer in the future.

    Fantastic!!! I bought the complete set of books first, but it was taking me too long, so I bought the audio books. I am listening to each CD at home and also in my car. If you are not a book reader, but love the movies, try the audio books. Great!!!

    I will highly recomment audiobooks.

    Stephenie Meyers new series

    Stephenie Meyers new series makes me crave more. This suspensed filled love story has gotten my full attention. You really feel attached to Bella and you truly will fall in love with Edward Cullun. When I took breaks from reading these books i felt like part of me was missing. These books really do grow apart of you. In the series it feels like you have your own secret world to escape to and anything can happen. I recommend this book to you because it is truly outstanding.

    AMAZING - i love these books so much and i'm totally in love with edward *sigh*

    If you want an amazing and beautiful book to sit down with you can't do better than one of the twilight books. I've read so many books but these are by far my favorite. Stephanie rocks!!! I would recommend it to anyone who likes romances as the author writes with so much realism that it feels like it could happen to you just like it happened to Bella. Also, I'd like to say that these books are the best since the Harry Potters and I would actually say that I prefer them.

    MY FAVORITE BOOK! AMAZING.

    I am obsessed with this book. First i thought maybe it's too creepy for me - it's like about vampires, weird. But it's so much more than that. Stephenie Meyer really describes the characters so vividly you're practically drooling over Edward when she describes him. I LOVED this book- best by far.

    Twilight- In a small town in Washington called Forks, lived a vampire family. The vampires don't drink human blood. So when Edward Cullen 'one of the vampires' meets Bella Swan, everything changes for him. Bella Swan, a human, starts to realize that there's something wrong with Edward...that he's not human. New Moon- Edward leaves Bella because he thinks he's the one that's putting her in danger. Bella hangs out with Jacob Black 'an old family friend' almost everyday and gets really close to him. Suddenly, Edward is in trouble and it is up to Bella to save him. Eclipse- Edward and Bella are together again and are getting ready for college when things start going wrong in Seattle. Bella's life is suddenly in great danger when the trouble in Seattle hits Forks. These 3 books are AMAZING! They'll totally blow you out of your chair. Just when you think something is about to happen, it doesn't. And you'll totally fall in love with the characters. Especially...Edward Cullen.
