Stephenie Meyer on Oprah


Twilight saga author Stephenie Meyer gave her one and only interview in the run-up to New Moon’s Nov. 20 release to Oprah Winfrey this afternoon. And from the screams that met Oprah’s introduction—”I understand we have some Twilight fans in the house”—it was clear that Meyer was on home turf. At this point, her back story is familiar to even casual observers: Exhausted, stay-at-home mother of three who’s never even written a short story dreams about a vampire boy and a human girl one night and just runs with it. But it was only during this chat with Oprah that I realized how much Meyer really hits the talk show’s sweet spot when it comes to female-centric stories about reconnecting with yourself. Said the preternaturally youthful looking Meyer about raising kids: “A lot of who I was and my crazy imagination…that person was on the back-burner.” The rest of the segment was as you’d expect: Complete box sets of the novels were given away willy-nilly to gasps. Robert Pattinson’s allure was discussed to screams.
