Trivia

by Sara McEwen

This chapter is a free excerpt from Biography of Stephenie Meyer.

  • The Twilight books are narrated in first person, usually by Bella Swan herself. Meyer considered writing another book in the Twilight saga, this one narrated more heavily by the male characters in the series. However, when the manuscript wound up being illegally leaked on the Internet at large, Meyer decided to pull the plug on the project. It would have been titled Midnight Sun.

  • Both Meyer and her husband spell their names with slight spelling variations that make the names unique: Meyer has two Es in Stephenie instead of an A, while Christiaan spells his name with two As instead of one. In Meyer's case, the spelling was because her parents wanted to base the name more closely on Meyer's father's name, Stephen.
