The woman behind the Twilight sensation.
In 2003, Stephenie Meyer had a dream about a vampire and a girl who were in love with each other. When she started writing down the tale the next morning, she had no idea that by the end of that year, it would make her the Cinderella of the young adult publishing world. Meyer’s debut novel, Twilight, set in modern-day Forks, Washington, has a romantic Victorian-novel feel and became an overnight best seller, making the stay-at-home mother a publishing sensation. With millions of copies of the series sold worldwide and translations in more than three-dozen languages, there is no disputing Meyer’s popularity among teens and adults alike.
This new, full-color resource teaches readers about her meteoric rise to literary superstardom.
