One of the most highly anticipated movies of the year hits theaters Friday and it is the creation of a Hartford-born writer.
""I had a really great dream that had a vampire in it, which was an unusual thing for me since I don't spend a lot of time thinking about vampires," Meyer said.
She said she never dreamed "Twilight" would ever be published. She wrote the story as a personal exercise.
The teen girl is played by Kristin Stewart. Rob Pattinson plays her blood thirsty love interest.
"Twilight" opens this Friday in theaters nationwide and already several hundreds midnight shows are sold out.
