Stephenie Meyer On 'Austenland': I'm Not Over My Jane Austen Obsession (VIDEO)

Twilight saga author Stephenie Meyer joined "Austenland" director Jerusha Hess on HuffPost Live this morning to talk about the upcoming film (Meyer produced it).

Meyer expressed a great amount of love for Jane Austen. She notes, "I love the books. I'll read at least one Jane Austen book a year, probably. They're just such a perfect little escape."

She goes on, "There's so much comedy to what Jane Austen wrote, so much biting social satire...there's a lot of levels to Austen. She's brilliant."
