The Vampire Strikes Back: ‘Eclipse’ Brings Out the Best in the ‘Twilight’ Saga

By now, you’re either invested in the Twilight movies or you’re not.

If you’re a reader of Stephenie Meyer’s novels, eager to see her ever-expanding world of ageless vampires, hotheaded werewolves and hormonal teenagers evolve on the big screen, or merely seduced by Robert Pattinson’s smoldering glower and Taylor Lautner’s sculpted physique

Twilight Author Stephenie Meyer on Her Favorite Kind of Vampire

Connecticut-born author Stephenie Meyer never planned to become a full-time writer.

Not that her passion for literature was some sort of fleeting fancy. After attending high school in Scottsdale, Arizona – Meyer’s family relocated to Arizona when she was four – she used a National Merit Scholarship to help pay her way through Brigham Young University, where she majored in English. But Meyer never envisioned herself as a bestselling author, much less watching the cinematic adaptation of her first novel, Twilight, dominate the holiday box office to the tune of nearly $140 million in its first two weeks.
