The most popular fan site, Twilight Lexicon, has an active news blog and busy discussion forums. It was started by Lori Joffs, a stay-at-home mom, after she began trading e-mails with Meyer in February 2006. Joffs was writing her own versions of Twilight chapters, but she found it hard to keep track of all the facts. So she asked Meyer about starting a Twilight encyclopedia, and the author loved the idea. "I love watching a woman I feel I have a lot in common with," says Joffs. "She's the same age, the same religion, and was a stay-at-home mom, but she was able to put into words this amazing story." Now, the site closely tracks news about Meyer, and developments with the $37 million Twilight movie, which is scheduled to open in December.
