Stephenie Meyer is a best selling teen vampire romance and science fiction author who is most well known for writing The Twilight Saga.
I had heard about the Twilight books but never thought to read them until my sister-in-law told me they were really good. I was a fan of vampire romance, Christine Feehan had recently been added to my bookshelf and I decided to take the plunge.
I enjoyed the whole series. Meyer is a great storyteller, and very enjoyable to read for the most part. There are always little things here and there that can be improved upon but by no means did that detract from how engrossed I was in her books. They were really good.
After the publication of her debut novel, Twilight, booksellers chose her as one of the "most promising new authors of 2005" (Publishers Weekly).
In addition, Meyer was named Author of the Year in 2008, as well as the biggest selling author, having sold over 22 million copies of the Twilight books worldwide.
Since 2005 the Twilight series has become as big a phenomenon as Harry Potter, and is widely popular among young readers all over the world, as well as many adults.
Due to it's popularity, the books were made into movies, the last of which was released in 2012 and Mrs. Meyer has made quite a name for herself.
