Vamptastic!

In case you're interested in the woman behind my obsession Time Magazine has written a fabulous article about Stephenie Meyer. You can read it here.

Some of my favorite quotes-

"I really think that's the underlying metaphor of my vampires," she says. "It doesn't matter where you're stuck in life or what you think you have to do; you can always choose something else. There's always a different path."

"I don't think I'm a writer; I think I'm a storyteller," Meyer says. "The words aren't always perfect."

"The way she manages the reader's curiosity, maintaining tension and controlling the flow of information, is simply virtuosic. She creates a compulsion in the reader that is not unvampiric."

"And people do not want to just read Meyer's books; they want to climb inside them and live there."

Oh, and in case you were wondering The Host comes out in 11 days- but who's counting?

That is a great article; thanks for posting it Amy. I love the quote:
"And people do not want to just read Meyer's books; they want to climb inside them and live there."
That is exactly how I feel sometimes. Lol!
