Stephenie Meyer Interview for The Chemist

Stephenie was interviewed by EW about her new book The Chemist.

Some cool quotes from the interview include this one about…how should we phrase it…a non-factory recommended use for the novel Breaking Dawn.

The book I’d use to squash a bug
Breaking Dawn—it’s heavy. Thick enough to give me some strategic distance from the bug, and I have lots of copies on hand.

There’s also a great quote about her ultimate guests at a dinner party:

The guests at my dream dinner party
There’s a serious version of this dinner, where I would invite Charlotte Brontë, Jane Austen, Louisa May Alcott, L.M. Montgomery, and Shakespeare, but that sounds so intimidating and not really enjoyable. So honestly I’d have to go with people who make me laugh: Mindy Kaling, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman, Bill Murray, Bill Hader, Aziz Ansari, Mitch Hedberg…. There are so many! How big is the table I’m working with here? And do I have to talk, or can I just listen?

Check the entire interview out on EW.

Stephenie Meyer and Rainbow Rowell Talk The Chemist

unnamed

Little, Brown and Company, announced today the event for THE CHEMIST, mega-bestselling author Stephenie Meyer’s first thriller. Changing Hands Bookstore in Arizona will host a conversation between Stephenie Meyer and author Rainbow Rowell on Friday, November 18, 2016 at 6:30PM MT / 8:30PM ET. The event will be broadcast live on Facebook from the Little, Brown page.

About the book:

In this gripping page-turner, an ex-agent on the run from her former employers must take one more case to clear her name and save her life.

She used to work for the U.S. government, but very few people ever knew that. An expert in her field, she was one of the darkest secrets of an agency so clandestine it doesn’t even have a name. And when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning.

Now she rarely stays in the same place or uses the same name for long. They’ve killed the only other person she trusted, but something she knows still poses a threat. They want her dead, and soon.

In this tautly plotted novel, Meyer creates a fierce and fascinating new heroine with a very specialized skill set. And she shows once again why she’s one of the world’s bestselling authors.
