Meyer has achieved quite a feat by making this scenario completely human and believable She begins with a familiar YA premise the new kid in school , and lulls us into thinking this will be just another realistic young adult novel Bella has come to the small town of Forks on the gloomy Olympic Peninsula to be with her father At school, she wonders about a group of five remarkably beautiful teens, who sit together in the cafeteria but never eat As she grows to know, and then love, Edward, she learns their secret They are all rescued vampires, part of a family headed by saintly Carlisle, who has inspired them to renounce human prey For Edward s sake they welcome Bella, but when a roving group of tracker vampires fixates on her, the family is drawn into a desperate pursuit to protect the fragile human in their midst The precision and delicacy of Meyer s writing lifts this wonderful novel beyond the limitations of the horror genre to a place among the best of YA fiction Ages 12 and up Patty Campbell 10 Second Interview A Few Words with Stephenie Meyer Q Were you a fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Angel What are you watching now that those shows are off the air A I have never seen an entire episode of Buffy or Angel While I was writing Twilight, I let my older sister read along chapter by chapter She s a huge Buffy fan and she kept trying to get me to watch, but I was afraid it would mess up my vision of the vampire world so I never did. I don t have a ton of time for TV, and my kids get rowdy when I have on mommy shows, but I do have a secret fondness for reality shows the good ones, at least in my opinion I always TiVo Survivor, The Amazing Race, and America s Next Top Model Q What inspired you to write Twilight Is this the beginning of a series Why write for teens A Twilight was inspired by a very vivid dream, which is fairly faithfully transcribed as chapter thirteen of the book There are sequels on the way I m hard at work editing book two tentatively titled New Moon right now, and book three is waiting in line for its turn I didn t mean to write for teens I didn t mean to write for anyone but myself, so I had an audience of one twenty nine year old and later one thirty one year old when my sister started reading I think the reason that I ended up with a book for teens is because high school is such a compelling time period it gives you some of your worst scars and some of your most exhilarating memories It s a fascinating place old enough to feel truly adult, old enough to make decisions that affect the rest of your life, old enough to fall in love, yet, at the same time too young in most cases to be free to make a lot of those decisions without someone else s approval There s a lot of scope for a novel in that Q What is your favorite vampire story Fave vampire movie A I guess my favorite vampire story would be The Vampire Lestat, by Anne Rice, simply because it s one of the only ones I ve ever read I keep meaning to pick up Bram Stoker s Dracula, because I get asked this question so often and I should probably start with the classics, but I haven t gotten around to it yet Again, I m afraid to read other vampire books now, for fear of finding things either too similar, or too different from my own vampire world. Ack I can t even answer the movie question I can t remember ever seeing a single vampire movie, outside of clips from Bela Lugosi movies on TV I don t like true horror movies my favorite scary movies are all Hitchcock s Q What other young adult authors do you read A My favorite young adult author is L.M Montgomery I also enjoy J.K Rowling but who doesn t , and Ann Brashares As a teen, I skipped straight to adult books lots of sci fi and Jane Austen , so I m rediscovering the world of teen literature now. Stephenie Meyer s List of Books You Should Read Anne of Green Gables Romeo and Juliet Dragonflight To Kill a Mockingbird The Princess Bride See recommendations from Stephenie Meyer QA with Stephanie Meyer Q What book has had the most significant impact on your life A The book with the most significant impact on my life is The Book of Mormon The book with the most significant impact on my life as a writer is probably Speaker for the Dead, by Orson Scott Card, with Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier coming in as a close second.Q You are stranded on a desert island with only one book, one CD, and one DVD what are they A The CD is easy Absolution by Muse, hands down It s harder to give myself just one movie, but the one I watch most frequently is Sense and Sensibility the one with the screenplay by Emma Thompson One book is impossible I d have to have Pride and Prejudice, but I couldn t live without something by Orson Scott Card and a nice, thick Maeve Binchy, too.Q What is the worst lie you ve ever told A My lies are all very, very boring No, you really look great in hot pink My children only watch one hour of TV a day I didn t eat the last Swiss Cake Roll it must have been one of the kids That s the best I ve got.Q Describe the perfect writing environment.A It s late at night and the house is silent, but I m still miraculously full of energy I have my headphones in and I m listened to a mix of Muse, Coldplay, Travis, My Chemical Romance, and The All American Rejects Beside me is a fabulous, and yet mysteriously low in calorie, cheesecake.Q If you could write your own epitaph, what would it say A I d like it to say that I really tried at the important things I was never perfect at any of them, but I honestly tried to be a great mom, a loving wife, a good daughter, and a true friend Under that, I d want a list of my favorite Simpsons quotes.Q Who is the one person living or dead that you would like to have dinner with A I d love to have a chance to talk to Orson Scott Card I have a million questions for him Mostly things like, How do you come up with this stuff But, if he wasn t available, I d settle for Matthew Bellamy lead singer of Muse.Q If you could have one superpower, what would it be A I d want something offensive, rather than defensive Like shooting fireballs from my hands That way, you re really open to going either way hero or villain I like to have choices Starred Review. Grade 9 UpHeadstrong, sun loving, 17 year old Bella declines her mom s invitation to move to Florida, and instead reluctantly opts to move to her dad s cabin in the dreary, rainy town of Forks, WA She becomes intrigued with Edward Cullen, a distant, stylish, and disarmingly handsome senior, who is also a vampire When he reveals that his specific clan hunts wildlife instead of humans, Bella deduces that she is safe from his blood sucking instincts and therefore free to fall hopelessly in love with him The feeling is mutual, and the resulting volatile romance smolders as they attempt to hide Edward s identity from her family and the rest of the school Meyer adds an eerie new twist to the mismatched, star crossed lovers theme predator falls for prey, human falls for vampire This tension strips away any pretense readers may have about the everyday teen romance novel, and kissing, touching, and talking take on an entirely new meaning when one small mistake could be life threatening Bella and Edward s struggle to make their relationship work becomes a struggle for survival, especially when vampires from an outside clan infiltrate the Cullen territory and head straight for her As a result, the novel s danger factor skyrockets as the excitement of secret love and hushed affection morphs into a terrifying race to stay alive Realistic, subtle, succinct, and easy to follow, Twilight will have readers dying to sink their teeth into it.Hillias J Martin, New York Public Library Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.
