"If you're not writing for teenage girls, you're missing out on a lot of love."
Meyer (born 1973) is best known for writing the Twilight
saga, and has also written another book, The Host
- Author Appeal: Meyer has gone on record and stated that she's attracted to both Edward and Jacob.
- Author Avatar: Her character Bella Swan seems to be this, although Meyer claims that she is meant to be a kind of placeholder for female readers to project themselves on.
- Author Vocabulary Calendar: Meyer seems to have a bad habit of over-using the word "chagrin" in her stories. One short story of hers uses "chagrin" and variations of the word at least three times.
- Butt Monkey: She's rather... disliked, and her works are Love It or Hate It at best.
- She's been described as "J.K. Rowling as a ninth-grade girl who dots her "i's" with hearts and flowers."
- Creator Breakdown: She had one when a few chapters of her new project Midnight Sun were leaked on the internet.
- Creator Cameo: Shows up in the movie version of Twilight at a restaurant.
- She's also a guest at Bella and Edward's wedding in Breaking Dawn-Part 1.
- Dirty Old Woman: Well, she's not that old but the fact she said that she would leave her husband for Edward, and the fact that his actor Robert Pattinson said he feels uncomfortable when she's around, may count as dirty. He's gone on record as saying he considers Stephenie Meyer to be mad, and Twilight to be a sexual fantasy that was never supposed to be published.
- Female Misogynist: She has been accused of being this.
- Spell My Name with an S: Extreme cases will spell her name Stephanie Meyers.
- Wants a Prize for Basic Decency: Boasted that she didn't pout when there were publishers that didn't wish to publish Twilight.
Stephenie Meyer: "I will state, for the record, that my queries truly sucked, and I don't blame anyone who sent me a rejection (I did get seven or eight of those. I still have them all, too). The only rejection that really hurt was from a small agent who actually read the first chapter before she dropped the axe on me. The meanest rejection I got came after Little, Brown had picked me up for a three-book deal, so it didn't bother me at all. I'll admit that I considered sending back a copy of that rejection stapled to the write-up my deal got in Publisher's Weekly, but I took the higher road."
- Sounds like a subtle Take That against J.K. Rowling, as Rowling has joked about sending rejection letters back to publishers after Harry Potter became successful.
