d. Midnight Sun
Meyer was born on Dec. 24, 1973.
She chronicled the star-crossed romance between Bella Swan and vampire soulmate, Edward Cullen, over the course of four novels. But the series wasn't originally supposed to end there. A fifth book would have retold the events of the first Twilight novel from Edward's perspective instead of focusing on Bella.
Meyer was still in the early stages of writing when several pages of her rough draft were leaked onto the Internet. She was so upset by the intrusion that she immediately suspended her work and never finished the book.
