A Brush with Fame

Four or five years ago my sister-in-law gave me a book for Christmas. A lady in her ward had her first book published, and in an effort to support her friend my SIL had bought some copies of the book, had them autographed, and gave them out as gifts. That book was Twilight.

Stephenie Meyer lived in my sister-in-law's ward until the success of her book afforded them to buy a nicer home. Despite the move, they stayed in contact. Remember the nephew I mentioned returned home from his mission? He used to babysit the Meyer's sons. So, on Sunday, when we went to his homecoming, I was not surprised to see the Meyers at the church. And then they even came to the luncheon afterward.

I admit to being too conflicted to talk with Stephenie. I mean, I wanted to, but I felt it was not very appropriate to be all fan-like when she was supposed to be at a friendly/family type get-together. I did notice someone else got her autograph, though. And Kitty kind of wanted a picture with her (I told her to ask, but she was too shy).

As a result, this is the best I can do for you--her she is in the background of this picture of Patch. My BIL is standing between her and her husband. Enjoy!

PS, I saw an article today indicating Stephenie Meyer has a novella coming out June 5--another vampire story.

PPS, That first-edition, signed copy of Twilight? Ruined... :-(

Scripture of the Day: Psalms 100:1-5


  1. Ha! That is awesome! And that must not be her good side, because it's not a great picture.

  2. How did the book get ruined? That is so sad. I am not personally a fan of the books, but my girls are. And a first edition signed?! Wow.

    Funny about the picture. Pretty sneaky!

  3. Love the story! Sorry the book is ruined.

  4. How funny. Ken Jennings came to my sister's wedding reception and my children were in total awe. I tried to resist being fan-like, too (and think I succeeded).

  5. Becky--are you going to be taking notes at conference this time?

  6. So cool! And very gracious of you not to bother her.

  7. Hey, a picture is a picture, right?
