Twilight Saga’s, Stephenie Meyer, is overcoming another milestone! On Christmas Eve Day, Meyer’s will be 46.
Born in 1973, Meyer’s (formerly known as Morgan) was the second of six children to Stephen and Candy Morgan in Hartford, Connecticut. Within the first few years of her life, Meyer’s and her family moved to Phoenix, Arizona. She wasn’t feeling as though she belonged in Arizona as if she were an alien in a strange land.

Despite the growing population of privileged, Meyer was able to graduate from high school in 1992. With her high marks, she was able to attend Brigham Young University with award money she received from the National Merit Scholarship majoring in English Literature.
At 21 years old, she married her childhood friend Christian Meyer. Within a year of their marriage and a degree in hand, Meyer’s had her first child.

By 2003, Meyer’s aspired to become an author. It became apparent in her dreams, where she dreamt of a human girl and a vampire who was in love with her but desired to taste her blood. This dream may sound familiar to you, as it caused Meyer to write her 13th chapter of Twilight.
Within two years, Meyer’s published Twilight and consecutively published each book of the series every year after. The Twilight series rose to fame in 2005, winning the best seller. This caused the adaptation of the Twilight series into movies that still run today.
Currently, Meyer is working on her blog, ‘Stephenie Meyer’, with her producing partner Meghan Hibbett. She created this space to revisit the world of Twilight, news and updates, films, along with her other books, The Host and The Chemist.
Can’t wait to see what else Meyer has up her sleeve.
