Stefani Meyer is one of the most famous writers of our time. Relatively young for the literary circle of the best, the American was able to gain worldwide recognition thanks to her saga "Twilight", heated discussions about which are ongoing to this day.
Stefani Mayer was born in Connecticut to a family of 5 children.
She lived with her parents in Arizona for a long time. The writer herself recalls the place where she spent her childhood as sunny and carefree. Little is known about the personal life of the writer. She met her husband before she was of age. Until now, they live together. The fact of single love, which is quite rare, in the "party" of American celebrities adds some romanticism to the image of Stephanie Meyer.
The beginning of the creative path
The story of her popularity is unique in its own way and in many ways similar to JK Rowling's rise to success. Prior to writing her first book, Stephanie had never published, at least not under her own name. In her student years, she was fond of literature and read a lot. She began writing her first lines at almost 30 years old. At this point, she was an ordinary housewife and raised three sons. According to my own storyStephanie had a dream in which a vampire fell in love with a young girl. The monster lusted for her blood, but kept himself in control because of love. After that, Meyer Stephanie began to write a novel, which she completed in 90 days. She sent five thousand pages to various agencies, and finally her book was approved for publication.
The book "Twilight" blew up every conceivable frontier of sales. Stephanie received a fee of $750,000.
Stephanie Meyer: "Twilight"
The novel "Twilight" is aimed primarily at teenagers, but has significant popularity among the older generation. It tells about the relationship between the vampire Edward and the mere mortal girl Bella. The story is told from the perspective of the latter. The first book can be called a detective, because in it the main character spends a lot of time trying to solve the mystery of a strange creature that, under the guise of an ordinary person, studies with her at school. Notably, Bella is from Phoenix, as is Stephenie Meyer.
Twilight is a love story. But there are also elements of a thriller, and according to some critics, even horror. All 5 books Bella and Edward struggle with various troubles that threaten their love and sometimes their lives. At the same time, there are no problems in the relationship itself. Most of the main characters have extremely positive qualities and are completely altruistic. This fact causes a wave of critics of Meyer Stephanie: they call her works too primitive, accusing the writer of lowtalent.
In addition to vampires, there are also werewolves in the book, with one of which Bella had a love triangle. In general, in all 5 books, a huge place is given to love. Almost all heroes, even minor ones, have universal love. It is she who is the motivating factor for many actions.
Stefani gained real worldwide popularity after the release of the film adaptation of her novel of the same name, in which Robert Pattinson played the role of Edward, and Kristen Stewart played the role of Bella. This was a new impetus to the growth of interest in Stephenie Meyer. Books were released in additional editions (total 85 million copies worldwide).
After "Twilight" Stephanie wrote a more "adult" novel "The Guest", but he could not conquer the audience as well. Many writers are sure that interest in the book was caused only by the famous name of its author.
Stefani Meyer is regularly compared to the author of the Harry Potter books, JK Rowling. "Battles" of fans on the Internet and at various thematic conventions have become the norm. Renowned writer Steven King said Stephanie's comparison to a British protégé is very true, but the former lacks writing talent.
