Stephanie Meyer had an English degree but no writing experience of any kind when she penned her first blockbuster novel "Twilight." The four-book series of novels about a vampire family living in the small town of Forks, Washington, sold more than 100 million copies. Although most of her books to date have been part of the Twilight series, she has expanded into other areas with her new novels. Here is a list of her books—not including ​​graphic novels—organized by year.

2005 - "Twilight"
