Q&A Stephenie Meyer: ‘Twilight’ Author Trades Undead for Well-Bred in ‘Austenland’

The Y.A. author's Fickle Fish Films keeps the focus on romance in Keri Russell starrer

Twilight” author Stephenie Meyer is moving on. She’s put a stake in the heart of her megahit vampire franchise, and saw modest results ($48 million worldwide) earlier this year from an adaptation of her romantic sci-fi novel “The Host.”

These days, instead of writing, she’s more focused on being a producer — a skill she gained from assuming that role on the final two “Twilight” movies and “The Host.” Her two-year-old shingle Fickle Fish Films, launched with co-topper Meghan Hibbett, is readying its first release, “Austenland,” starring Keri Russell as a die-hard Jane Austen fan who plans a vacation at a country house steeped in the world of the 19th century British romance writer. The film, adapted from Shannon Hale’s novel of the same name, and directed by first-time helmer Jerusha Hess, will be released Aug. 16 by Sony Classics, which snapped up U.S. rights to the quirky $6.5 million comedy following its Sundance debut.

Meyer spoke with Variety’s Dave McNary about the rigors of producing the work of others vs. the expectations of her own, the end of the “Twilight” series, whose five films generated $3.3 billion in worldwide ticket sales, and her shingle’s next two projects.

Dave McNary: What kind of name is Fickle Fish?

Stephenie Meyer: (Laughs) Meghan (Hibbett) and I settled on it because we could not find a name that wasn’t already taken. We’d be eating grilled cheese sandwiches and try “grilled cheese,” and find that someone else already had it. We picked Fickle Fish because we kind of feel like fish out of water.

DM: How was it being a producer on “Austenland” compared with “Twilight” and “The Host”?

SM: There was zero pressure, since this was not my novel. It’s a comedy first and foremost, so there was a lot of laughter. Keri was five months pregnant and the least pregnant woman I’ve ever seen.

DM: What was it like at Sundance?

SM: I had the kind of Sundance experience you read about. (“Austenland”) got great reviews, and Sony Classics bought it right away.

DM: What kind of pressure was there with the two “Breaking Dawn” movies and “The Host”?

SM: It was very intense because you have a mental picture of scenes and characters, based on the book. My role was to keep (things) as close (to the book) as possible.

DM: Fickle Fish has optioned two ghost stories, Lois Duncan’s “Down a Dark Hall” and Kendare Blake’s “Anna Dressed in Blood.” Which will you do next?

SM: We’re much further along on “Down a Dark Hall” and we’re looking for a director. And we’re not just doing ghost stories.

DM: What about a return to “Twilight?”

SM: I get further away every day. I am so over it. For me, it’s not a happy place to be.

DM: Is the door completely closed on that?

SM: Not completely. What I would probably do is three paragraphs on my blog saying which of the characters died. I’m interested in spending time in other worlds, like Middle-Earth.

DM: How are you spending your time these days, other than promoting “Austenland”?

SM: I’m spending 75% being a mom and a human being. I have a great son who’s a junior in high school, who makes me feel like I’m 112 years old. My other boys are in the sixth grade and the eighth grade.

DM: What are you writing now?

SM: I’m kind of decompressing and figuring that out.

DM: Is there a lot of blood, sweat and tears with writing?

SM: That would be editing. For me, there’s a real joy in writing because the world is what you want it to be. With a book, when you’re done reading it, the characters go away once you’re done. When you’re writing, the characters can last much longer.

    Sad you think the characters go away when you’re done reading a book. Isn’t that what Austenland is all about? The characters stay with you!

  2. Kitkat says:

    Question: what happened to midnight sun???

  3. E.v. Emmons says:

    For the most part her answers seemed genuine, but the part that bothered me is how quickly she dismissed Twilight, ‘she’s so over it, and its not a happy place to be’ etc How is it not a happy place? It got her wealth, fame, and opportunity. You would think she’d be forever grateful, and willing to keep the door open for the fans. The day may come, when her projects and money dry up, and she may very well have to crawl on her belly over glass to us fans, in hopes we’d buy more Edward and Bella stories. That felt a bit shoddy to me…

  4. Sarah H says:

    I’m looking forward to Austenland, and I’ll be looking forward to any new direction you choose to take in your writing. Here’s to moving forward :)

  5. AmyBeth says:

    I hope some of Meyer’s comments were taken out of context because the comments are immensely rude. It’s absolutely fine to be ‘over’ Twilight. It’s absolutely fine to say it, but word it carefully. You’ve just offended the millions of fans who have SUPPORTED you throughout your career. I am inclined to no longer support her and her projects, and by proxy the potentially talented actors, directors, writers, she works with. I can’t imagine the years of pressure and negativity she experienced, but that is no reason to be bitter about it. Without the fans she’s made, she’d be nothing- and that goes for any person in any discipline. The power lies in fans. Writers need fans, not the other way around.

  6. Kate Carvalho says:

    Stephenie, do you think that maybe you thought of us, the fans and admirers, who for all these years not only followed your Saga but also followed you, your life and your other work and showed true love for your writing that not only made us fall in love but also changed the lives of each and everyone of us? By saying that “it’s not a happy place to be” you despised and you humiliated us all. This is OUR place, and you are responsible for it. In IT we are happy, and it is just unforgivable for you to try to take it away from us. It might not be for you, but for us it is FOREVER Sincerely, Twihards #TwilightIsAHappyPlace

  7. Erika Cullen says:

    Wow, I feel like I’ve just been slapped in the face. I think Stephenie Meyer needs to come back down to Earth and forget Middle Earth. If it weren’t for Twilight she wouldn’t even have the privilege of directing or producing movies. The Twilight fandom has placed her where she is today. She says “it’s not a happy place to be’????? What, 3.3 billion dollars wasn’t enough to find your happy place?? That’s disgusting. Do you know how many moms like me are struggling every day just to keep our children fed, clothed, and in school? Shame on you Steph for degrading the fans and belittling our happy Twilight World. You sound so completely jaded… obviously the fame has gone to your head. Please don’t bother writing any paragraphs on your blog about the Twilight characters, they deserve better than that.

  8. blip says:

    What the heck is up with that stupid spam comment? C’mon, girls: you’re sounding as insipid and self-centered as your precious heroine here. I know it’s well beyond the “Twilight” scope, but just a smidgen of originality would go a long, long way at this point. Oh, and Meyer: Please stay the heck out of “Middle Earth.” Go wet-noodle someone else’s fandom.

  9. Ingryd Novaes says:

    Stephenie… I don’t know what to say now… I just… Can’t believe that you say it! Darling, Twilight ALWAYS WILL BE A HAPPY PLACE! The Saga changed my life! I’m a writer because of you and the Twilight Saga. I found my vocation e I’m happy for that. I have so many reasons to say thank you! I love you! All the Fans love you! So never, NEVER, say that Twilight not is a happy place to be, because it is. And Always is Always, at the verb never end. Ps: I’m brazilian… So, sorry if a wrong something that i said

  14. Stephenie, I’m Twihard, but I’m not here to talk about Twilight, just about what do said. Ok, let’s go, I love you, really, but, when you’re done reading books , the characters DONT’T go away once you’re done, not when YOU do this, when you are the girl who make this guys, really, I think Twilight is a Happy Place, but you just let it go, and us, the fans, we just can’t let the characters go away , because we LOVE TWILIGHT, we LIVE TWILIGHT, we ARE TWILIGHT, and when you let YOURS characters go away, we just die, you can don’t belive, but we live for Twilight, it’s different to us when you let it go away!

    I think that we might not be getting her whole context here. Perhaps she is “over” writing and promoting Twilight but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t appreciate the story or her fans. I think this part of the interview was clipped so that it appears rude. We all know Edward, Bella, and Jacob are Stephenie’s “imaginary friends.” C’mon guys, she created them and loves them. I don’t think we’re getting the whole picture of their conversation with this interview.

By saying that “it’s not a happy place to be” you despised and you humiliated us all. This is OUR place, and you are responsible for it. In IT we are happy, and it is just unforgivable for you to try to take it away from us. It might not be for you, but for us it is FOREVER.
    Sincerely, Twihards. ‪#‎TwilightIsAHappyPlace‬

    Stephenie Meyer, I had great admiration for you, never seen any writer speak so ill of your work as you did, you defended so many times and also his work, and now we are despised by the person who provided us with this, you have no idea what we are going with what you said!
