I. About the author and its story behind the book
Twilight Series: Twilight (Book One), a young-adult vampire-romance novel written by Stephenie Morgan Meyer, was published in New York by Little, Brown Young Readers in 2005.
Stephenie Meyer, the biggest selling author of 2008, was born in Hartford, Connecticut, the U.S. in 1973. Her family was settled in Phoenix by the time she was four, considering that she thought of herself as a native.

Meyer attended Chaparral High School in Scottsdale, Arizona and Brigham Young University, where she received a B.A. in English in 1995.

And this is the scene of Chapter 13 of Twilight.
The modern story begins with the protagonist and narrator, Isabella (Bella) Swan, moving from Phoenix, to the small town of Forks, a dreary and rain-filled place, to live with her father, Charlie Swan. She develops a relationship with a fellow student,...
