Stephenie Meyer grew up in Phoenix, Arizona and was one of six children. She met her husband, Pancho (his real name is Christian, but no one calls him that) when she was just four, but they hardly even exchanged words until sixteen years later. Stephenie and Pancho got married about nine months after finally talking and getting to know each other. She doesn’t refer to herself and Pancho as childhood sweethearts because although they would see each other a lot, they never really spoke or anything. They have been married for ten and a half years now, and have three boys. Their names are Gabe, Seth and Eli. Stephenie is Mormon.
The unusual spelling of Stephenie’s name came from her father, Stephen ( + ie). Stephenie went to high school in Scottsdale, Arizona where she was awarded a National Merit Scholarship, and used it to pay her way to Brigham Young University, in Provo, Utah. Stephenie majored in English.
