Tripping the Twilight fantastic

A couple of years ago a friend of mine, who worked in publishing, emailed me suggesting a guest for CNN. 
The guest was an author doing well in America and was about to start selling her books in Europe. My friend was a big fan of the books but also the author who apparently had amazing story to tell.

I agreed to have the author on the show and I'm glad I did because it became one of my most memorable interviews. I heard how a deeply religious housewife had a dream that she turned into a book. She was caught out by her success but was riding the wave.

Her name was Stephanie Meyer, and her success was nothing compared to what it is now. Its one of those interviews that gets better with age because you know it was the beginning of something huge. See it here and get a sense of just how big the author of Twilight has become on tonight's show.

Also give us your thoughts here on the housewife, writer and, now, Hollywood big-hitter that is Stephanie Meyer.
