Time Magazine named YA author Stephenie Meyer as one of the 100 most influential people of 2008

Stephenie Meyer, author of YA vampire romantic fantasy Twilight and its sequels New Moon and Eclipse , has been named one of the hundred most influential people of 2008 by Time Magazine. You can read the full article on her here–written by Orson Scott Card! (author of Ender’s Game and other books; if you like fantasy, you should check them out, too.). I think it’s neat that a YA author is getting a lot of attention–and neat that there’s such a following for her books. I really enjoyed Twilight, with a few reservations; I wished Bella was a stronger girl character, and not such a victim. But I still loved the book.

If you enjoyed the books, you might want to check out the article. You may also be pleased to know that Meyer has a new book coming out–The Host: A Novel–on May 6th. The Host is a very different story–a futuristic sci-fi, though still with a love story. It’s meant for adults, but I’m sure many teens will gravitate towards it.

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
