Author Info
Stephenie Meyer
On June 2, 2003, Stephenie Meyer, a mild-mannered Mormon housewife living near Phoenix, AZ, had one of the most prolific and profitable dreams of all-time. Meyer dreamt of a darkly handsome vampire whose love for a comely young lady was constantly threatened by his unearthly desire to suck her blood. Even though she was raising three children under the age of five at the time, Meyer somehow managed to extend her vivid dream into a popular book for teens, TWILIGHT, published in 2005. By 2008, the four books of the TWILIGHT series were the four top-selling books of the year, according to USA Today, an unprecedented feat that has never been accomplished by any other author. The four main books soon spawned countless companion guides, a network of related websites, a blockbuster film series, and an emerging genre of TWILIGHT-related alternative rock, led by artists recommended by Meyer through playlists on her website. ||While her lucid nocturnal hallucination has now evolved into an international multimedia phenomenon, Meyer herself has remained firmly grounded in her family and her faith. She was born in Hartford, Connecticut, in 1973, but the Meyer family settled in Phoenix when Stephenie was only four years old, and she has lived there ever since. She and her five siblings--two sisters, three brothers--quickly grew tired of the BRADY BUNCH comparisons they were inevitably bombarded with (Stephenie, the middle sister, would have been Jan). A National Merit Scholarship paid her way to Brigham Young University, where she earned a degree in English, though she focused on reading literature, rather than writing it. While at BYU, Meyer "met" and married her husband, "Pancho," though they had actually known each other as acquaintances since they were toddlers. Meyer and her family are observant Mormons, which means she does not drink alcohol or caffeine (though she admitted to Time magazine that she sneaks an occasional Diet Pepsi), and she does not watch R-rated films. Luckily for her, TWILIGHT, the film version of her book, was rated PG-13.
From the Publisher
Annotation BREAKING DAWN, the hotly anticipated fourth and final book in the bestselling crossover teen vampire series Twilight, wraps up some very important questions in the gripping and wildly romantic story of Bella Swan. Split into three sections, one of which is narrated by werewolf Jacob Black, the story opens with Bella driving along, thinking about her impending wedding to Edward. Although it seems that she's about to get exactly what she wants, Bella has no idea what lays in store for her: a near-death transformation, an all-out vampire war, and many painfully divided loyalties. Though there has been some debate how well the final volume of the quartet stands up to the others, it's undoubtedly a fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat read. Shades of the Darla story line in the popular television series ANGEL are definitely in play here, as well as hints of dark gothic romances and even modern young adult fiction by the likes of Garth Nix, Holly Black, and Scott Westerfeld.
