USA Today Interviews StephenieJul 30th, 2008 | By Krystal | Category: Site News
USA Today has an amazing interview with Stephenie Meyer that features some pretty interesting insights:
Details are scarce, but Meyer, who says she finds it hard to keep secrets, has released a few.
The most startling: Her editors asked her to tone down the violence in Breaking Dawn, which she did, and discussed putting an age warning on the book, which she says she supported, although it didn’t happen.
“I was for an age limit of 15 or 16 and a warning,” says Meyer. “I think the content is just a little harder to handle, a little bit more grown-up for really young kids. I have 9-year-old readers, and I think it’s too old for them. Some of it’s violence, and some of it’s just mature themes.”
