Twilight has enraptured millions of readers since its first publication in 2005 and has become a modern classic, redefining genres within young adult literature and inspiring a phenomenon that has had readers yearning for more. The novel was a #1 New York Times bestseller, a #1 USA Today bestseller, a Time magazine Best Young Adult Book of All Time, an NPR Best-Ever Teen Novel, and a New York Times Editor’s Choice. The Twilight Saga also includes New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn, and The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella, all available on audio from Listening Library.
Never underestimate the power of your dreams...this is what author, Stephenie Meyer learned when she had a dream in June of 2003 about characters who had a quality of being real, and who she could not get out of her head. She was a busy mother of three young sons at the time, and had so many daily needs to be met. She began by writing down her thoughts when she could and started thinking about plots through swim lessons, potty-training, and late at night when the house was quiet. Within three months, she completed her first written piece...ever...Twilight! After submitting the manuscript to several publishers, it was chosen out of a pile of manuscripts, and was published by Little, Brown, where all readers fell in love with the multi-layered story of the young lovers.
Of course, the new book received many, many awards and the anticipation was feverish for the second in the Saga to be released. In September of 2006, New Moon was released to raving reviews and more than 25 weeks as #1on the New York Times bestseller list. Eclipse was released in 2007, and in 2008, the final book in the Twilight Saga , Breaking Dawn, was released at 12:01 midnight on August 2. All books of the series were adapted to full feature films, with record breaking grosses.
Stephenie lives in Arizona with her husband and three sons...probably hoping for another really good dream!
