Today, the lovely and talented Stephenie Meyer turns thirty-six years young.
Stephenie Meyer, creator of the world of Twilight, has a story that her fans know like the backs of their hands – from the inspiring dream that made it all happen to her very favorite bands that helped inspire putting the saga down on paper.
Meyer initially wrote Twilight as a way, she said to Oprah, of “spending time in this fantasy world.” Little did she know, the stories floating in her head (and subsequently flowing onto paper) would become one of the most sought after franchises in modern literature.
Ever since, her name has become beyond household and her stories have become little pieces of treasure to her fans. Additionally, Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series has become a groundbreaking film franchise (with Twilight, The Twilight Saga: New Moon and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse already complete).
Through it all, Meyer has maintained her composure and grace, and she serves as a fascinating role model for those interested in the world of writing. To put it plainly, Meyer is a shining display of the once-thought-lost “American Dream.”
So, happy birthday to Stephenie Meyer – creator, queen, princess, and mother of all things Twilight!
