What does Stephenie Meyer's publicist do in her spare time? Write YA novels, of course!

Elizabeth Eulberg has quite the day job. Her very intimidating title is Director of Global Publicity for Stephenie Meyer, which means she manages planet Earth’s insatiable demand for theTwilight mega-author. But on the weekends the 35-year-old Wisconsin native turns off the ringer to her vampire phone, holes up in her Hoboken, apartment, and writes 5,000 words a day. (She awards herself a cupcake on Sunday evenings.)

Eulberg, with the full support of her very influential boss, published her first YA novel The Lonely Hearts Club to sweet acclaim last year. Her new book, Prom & Prejudice, is a fun spin on Jane Austen’s masterpiece, told from the point of view of Lizzie Bennett, a junior scholarship student struggling to maintain her sense of dignity at a terribly snobby private school. We recently caught up with Eulberg, who somehow aims to publish a book a year while also handling all things Team Twilight.

Go to the link above to see where Eulberg answers these questions:
  • Have you always dreamed of writing YA novels, or is it a natural byproduct of working with Stephenie Meyer?
  • In your acknowledgements you thank Stephenie Meyer for a conversation that sparked your idea for the book. What was said?
  • Did you immerse yourself in the Jane Austen factory before you started writing?
  • If a young reader tells you she loved Prom & Prejudice where would you steer her next?
  • What do you think about folks who reflexively sniff at adult YA fans who gobble up Twilight orProm & Prejudice or Sweet Valley High for that matter?
  • What’s on your nightstand now?
