with abc's alex perez in columbia. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, robin. take a look at this incredible scene behind me. the heavy rain washing away a huge chunk of the road here as the floodwaters start to go down, the damage is becoming clearer. this morning, nine dams breached here as the governor says things could get worse before they get better. our first look at the severe damage caused by those massive floods that left parts of south carolina underwater. raging floodwaters nearly washing away some businesses in columbia. the unrelenting storm blamed for at least 13 deaths. more than 500 roads in this state severely damaged. officials going door to door monday checking on columbia residents. neighborhoods that were rivers now drying out. many among the more than 900 people evacuated to emergency shelters now returning home to

floods during heavy rainfalls, let alone epic ones. schools are still closed today. there's still some water in the streets but what we're worried about is all that water will be coming from the upstate. charleston very vulnerable especially this spot not one the, not two but three rivers converge and this is one that will be rising. we are looking at rainfall amounts estimates over the last couple of days of 4 trillion gallons of water falling across the state. a lot has to come through the rivers and get to the ocean so our concern goes from flash flooding and tidal flooding to the rising rivers and the potential for them cresting and flooding mean more of the low country in the coming day, robin. >> thank you. 4 trillion gallons. >> let's dig into that with ginger. lots of flood warnings out there. >> that's right, not just in charleston but several of the red marks where you see the rivers either at crest or will still rise as we go toward the end of the week. coastal flood advisories from maryland all the way to
jacksonville, florida, as that storm pushes that water on to land. fortunately we see more sun and drying out through the week. one interesting little note that we wanted to leave you with, you can see the storm joaquin way in the bahamas and see how it tapped into the moisture. south and north carolina just getting inundated. >> thank you. you mentioned joaquin. now to the race against time to find survivors of that cargo ship sunk by hurricane joaquin. the coast guard has now searched an area bigger than california and narrowed it down to two debris fields where they found a body and a badly damaged lifeboat. abc's linzie janis has the latest and joins us now from miami. good morning, linzie. >> reporter: good morning, robin. overnight the families of the crew were briefed by the u.s. coast guard and the company that owns the "el faro" for 3 1/2 hours. many of them are feeling angry, but mostly they are clinging to hope that somehow their loved ones are still alive. overnight the coast guard
desperately searching for survivors of the "el faro," their focus now on two giant debris fields near where they believe the cargo ship sank in 15,000 feet of water. >> we've modified our search efforts to focus more on potential people in the water. >> reporter: "el faro"'s last known position 35 miles off crooked island in the bahamas, crews already finding one of the ship's two lifeboats. empty and barely afloat as well as several survival suit, one containing the body of a crew member. but with ocean currents quickly pushing the debris further north away from land, searchers unable to take the time to recover the remains. >> when we have reports of other life raft boats we need to get out there because if we don't right away it could sink. we might not be able to relocate it. >> reporter: the hope is the crew is wearing these immersion suits that could keep them alive in the water for days. but putting them on in the middle of that hurricane would have been extremely difficult.
each of the 33 crew member has one of the so-called gumby suits which in warm waters could keep them alive for four to five days but as family members cling to hope, anger growing over how the ship ended up in joaquin's path. >> they should have held that boat back at least a day or so. >> reporter: overnight the company that owns the "el faro" saying the captain had been trying to bypass the storm. >> his plan was a sound plan that would have enabled him to pass around the storm. >> reporter: but, of course, the ship losing power and ending up in the middle of that hurricane. the ntsb today headed this way to begin its investigation. george. >> okay, thanks. we turn to the midair medical emergency. the captain of an american airline jet dies in flight from phoenix to boston. co-pilot takes controls and our aviation correspondent david kerley has the story. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning. the pilot falls ill but listen to the co-pilot.
the calmness as he realizes he's on his own with more than 150 on board. the call seems so matter of fact with so much going wrong. >> american 550, medical emergency, captain is incapacitated. request handling for runway 1-0 landing. >> reporter: the captain, 57-year-old michael johnston unresponsive. >> we know that there was a flight attendant that was a nurse that tried to resuscitate him. >> reporter: so the phoenix to boston flight di vers to syracuse with the word going out to ground crews. >> pilot is unresponsive, not breathing. >> reporter: the co-pilot remains cool as the a-320 approaches just asking that medics board as soon as they're on the ground. >> understood as long as they have a way to get on the airplane quickly. we will need them to get to the captain. >> roger. >> reporter: on the ground, 147 passengers see ambulances surround the jetliner. one at the foot of the stairs. >> we thought he wasn't feeling
well. we had no idea he had passed. it was extremely shocking. >> reporter: no announcement is made immediately but some realize what happened. >> we had to wait for the body to be removed from the plane. it was pretty -- it was pretty intense. >> reporter: despite the untimely death praise for the co-pilot's handling of the harrowing situation. >> whatever happened in that cockpit, none of us will know but that co-pilot did a great job. >> reporter: any co-pilot and captain are trained to the same standards to be able to fly by themselves in an emergency. now, the first officer brought in another crew to take the passengers to boston. >> does this happen often. >> reporter: it is a rare occurrence. we talked to the faa. in the past 20 years there have only been eight other incidents like this one. >> okay, david kerley, thanks very much. >> and the fact that the passenger has no idea really says a lot about the crew, their professionalism. now to a miracle on the train tracks. an amtrak train derailing in vermont injuring at least seven on board but somehow most people
walked away and thankfully no one was killed. abc's gio benitez is on the scene in northfield, vermont. good morning, gio. >> reporter: hey, robin, good morning to you. you know, many of these passengers were just taking in the beautiful fall here in vermont when things went dramatically wrong. thankfully this morning, we are talking about survival stories. >> amtrak train has derailed, some of the cars are over the embankment. >> reporter: this morning the ntsb is investigating another train derailment. >> all cars are off the track. >> reporter: at least seven hospitalized one even airlifted after a passenger train known as the vermonter traveling from st. albans to washington, d.c. overturned in northfield, vermont. amtrak says it hit a pile of rocks from a rock slide. causing it to derail with 98 passengers on board. did you realize right away that this was a derailment? >> no, i thought we hit a tree bran or something and they were slowing down to make sure
nothing was further ahead in the track and then once i felt all the jostling i knew something had to be happening. >> reporter: passengers helping each other get out of those train cars. some even breaking windows to escape. experts say those passengers probably walked away mostly unharmed because the train cars were intact, unlike these crushed cars in the deadly amtrak crash in philadelphia last may where eight people were killed and at least 200 were injured. and it turns out these tracks here were recently upgraded. in fact, the speed limit was raised from 55 to 59 but right now there is no reason to believe we're told that anyone is at fault, george. >> okay, gio, thanks very much. could have been so much worse. we have the race for president now, "your voice, your vote" and hillary clinton gearing up for next week's first democratic debate releasing her first national tv ad getting emotional on the issue of gun control and jon karl tracking it all. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, george. in a bid revive her slumping campaign hillary clinton is using her first national
television ad to go right at house republicans. >> the republicans finally admit it. >> reporter: in her first national campaign ad hillary clinton uses the words of the republican expected to be the next speaker of the house. >> we put together a benghazi special committee. what are her numbers today? >> reporter: mrs. clinton said those words prove the house committee investigating benghazi where she is expected to testify in two weeks is nothing more than a political witchhunt. >> how many people have to die before we actually act? >> reporter: a town hall meeting in new hampshire clinton became emotional on the issue of gun violence. >> so many of the parents of these precious children who were murdered have taken the unimaginable grief that they have been bearing and have tried to be the voices that we need to hear. >> reporter: clinton unveiled her gun control plan, pushing
for stricter background checks, a crackdown on un regularegulat internet and gun show sales and increased liability for gun manufacturers and dealers. donald trump staked out an entirely different position on guns. >> the president talks about guns and it's not the guns that do the shooting, it's the people, it's the mind that does the shooting. so i would have been much more focused on that. >> jon is back with us now. another big issue dropping, this major trade agreement negotiated by president obama several other countries right there. this could put hillary clinton in a tight spot. >> reporter: it sure could because bernie sanders has staked out an immediate position opposed to the deal calling it disastrous in a statement sanders says wall street and other big corporations have won again. it's time for the rest of us to stop letting multinational corporations rig the system to pad their profits. george, hillary clinton as secretary of state supported these trade talks but she has
not taken a position on this agreement yet as a candidate for president. >> okay, jon karl, thanks very much. to amy with today's other top stories starting with the surprising offer from edward snowden. >> that's right, former nsa contractor edward snowden says he has volunteered to return to the united states and go to prison for leaking top secret documents on government surveillance but snowden tells the bbc he is still waiting to hear back from u.s. officials. snowden has been living in exile in moscow for two years. well, the new escalation in the crisis in syria, russia is reportedly sending ground troops into that country to support dictator bashar al assad. meanwhile, nato has issued a stern warning to moscow after a russian warplane violated turkey's airspace. nato's leader saying he doubts that violation was just an accident. new details about a disaster unfolding in guatemala where at least 15 people have been killed in a mudslide there. a hillside collapsed after heavy rains burying an entire
neighborhood. 300 other people remain unaccounted for this morning. well, a violent protest near paris, workers stormed the headquarters of air france and attacked their bosses over the decision to eliminate nearly 3,000 jobs. the workers tore the shirts off two managers forcing them to climb a fence to escape. the president of france calling the protest unacceptable. well, this morning the nfl is admitting a big mistake that determined the outcome of the monday night football game. lions receiver calvin johnson fumbles there near the goal line. the seahawks batted it out of the end zone. doing that deliberately is illegal so the lions should have received the ball back inside the 1 yard line but the refs gave it to the seahawks who ran out the clock and wong 13-10. and this is the same end zone where the seahawks benefited from a bad call three years ago on monday night, so history repeating itself. >> so no recourse even though --
>> oh, no. >> get them all back out there and play again? no, nope. that's the way it goes and with that in mind, a scandal erupts in the world of online fantasy sports. that story for you in just 30 seconds. we've all seen those television ads for online leagues. they run constantly during football games but now a recent incident raises concerns about the risk of so-called insider trading in the multibillion
dollar industry. david wright is here with that story. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, robin. you've seen the ads, well, now comes the scandal. this is as you say a multibillion dollar unregulated industry. in which sports fans try to predict the most successful players in any given week and that's worth money, lots of it but the question this morning did an employee of one of those companies win big through an unfair advantage? >> draftkings.com combines one day fantasy sports with winning life-changing amounts of cash. >> reporter: if you watch football you've definitely seen the ad. >> pick your team and get your cash winnings after monday night. >> reporter: promising big bucks for being a monday morning quarterback. >> we're making a millionaire every week. >> reporter: the websites draftkings and fanduel taking fantasy football to new limits. the two sites took in $60 million in just the first week of the nfl season. but this morning, outrage after claims that an employee of draftkings won big money on the
fanduel site. >> touchdown. >> reporter: draftkings denies all allegations of wrongdoing by the employee. both sites issued a joint statement noting that nothing is more important than the integrity of the games we offer. critics say these sites which are not currently regulated are tantamount to straight up gambling and ought to be treated the same way as other fors of sports betting. one congressman now calling for hearings on capitol hill. >> how is it any different from sports betting? i don't see it. why, because you call it fantasy? >> reporter: well, this morning the fantasy sports trade association says for now draftkings and fanduel have decided to prohibit employees from participating in online fantasy sports contests for money. probably a good idea because, yo know, theoretically these guys have access to who everybody is picking and that might give them an unfair advantage. >> and that is gambling. >> they claim not. >> yeah, you can call it a couple different things but it's
gambling. >> $350,000. not a small amount of money. >> not at all. thank you. a lot more ahead. the mysterious death of a doctor and suburban mother of three found in the doorway of a new york city apartment building. police investigating right now what they say the surveillance tapes show. and an abc news exclusive, the never before seen tapes of apple's steve jobs. why the company is releasing them now sparking a big debate. that's only on "gma." from the dairy farmers of fairlife, this is our promise.

abc's david wright is here with that story. good morning, david. >> good morning. this is a tragic story. tonight the family of this 13-year-old youtube star is holding a funeral for him. they did not see this coming. caleb's parents say he likely had a rare heart abnormality that went undetected and that may have caused his death. his family and his young fans are reeling. >> hey, guy, this -- today's video will be a little different. >> reporter: he was one of the stars of a new sort of hit show. >> this is my first home run that i ever got. >> reporter: the life of a tight-knit family of five chronicled in realtime in home videos posted online. on youtube and instagram. the bratayleys, not their real name have more than a million fans and followers. now this real family is coping with an unfathomable loss. on friday caleb's parents posted caleb logan bratayley passed away of natural causes. this has come as a shock to all of us.
words cannot describe how much we miss him. the cause of death still a mystery but the family says accident or injury have been ruled out. instead they say the medical examiner's initial findings point to an undetected previously existing medical condition. today the parents told abc news there's a family history of a heart condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. the heart muscle becomes abnormally thick and often goes undiagnosed because they rarely have symptoms. in a small number of people the thickened heart muscle can disrupt the heart's electrical system creating abnormal heart rita ships that can be life-threatening. his fans naturally are stunned. many of those fans are kids themselves now asking their own parents questions about a show their parents weren't necessarily following. online, more than 200,000 comments, condolences from fans around the world.
>> aaagh. >> call the cops? >> ooh. >> woo. >> reporter: last week one day before his death caleb recorded this video joking around with his sisters and imagining what he'd like to ask his future self. >> are there any new sports? that's probably what i'd ask. what's the new craze? >> reporter: not knowing he had just one more day to live. well, because of the huge interest the family plans to live stream tonight's funeral. we should know that the bratayleys are part of disney abc's extended family. their show produced by maker studios owned by disney so our heart really goes out to them. the mayor clinic says this heart condition usually does go undiagnosed but that in 99% of cases it's not fatal. people survive so 1% tends to be young people. >> so sad. >> oh. >> thank you, david.
next up on "heat index" we have n numbers showing that fewer kids are playing sports and that parents may be to blame for putting too much pressure on the kids taking the fun out of the games and saw this first in "the washington post" and juju chang here with the details. >> reporter: good morning. let's face it, the overwhelming majority of our kids are never going to play in the nba or the nfl or even metal in the olympics but we parents may be meddling in our kids' sports in a way that is not leading to good sportsmanship. are parents taking all the fun out of kids playing sports these days? s>> come on! you guys know anything about defense? >> reporter: this morning, that's exactly what some experts are saying, much like will ferrell's character in "kicking and screaming" taking the competitive edge to the extreme could be having negative effects on your child's desires to play. one recent survey discovering that over a recent five-year span the number of kids and teens playing team sports
declined nearly 4% and that participation in all sports in neral is down 10% and some experts are placing the majority of the blame on pressure from parents. >> parents are getting increasingly competitive about showing that their kids are number one in everything and sports is just another example. >> reporter: one professor at george washington university surveyed nearly 150 children asking what they found fun about sports. the results, kids reacting positively to team dynamics trying hard and learning. on a list of 81 factors contributing to their happiness, they put winning all the way down at 48. >> when there's such an overemphasis on winning, it really takes away the enjoyment and fun experience from the kids. >> reporter: mother of two, lisa harper values hard work and discipline in sports. >> it translates into school and translates into professions. >> reporter: so how do we get kids back on the feel enjoying
athletics again? experts say a shift in parents' out todays and expectations could do the trick. >> parents should take a step back and really listen to what their kids want. for overly competitive parents it's never too late to make a change. >> laughter here in the crowd. it's never too late but if you're thinking, hey, it's just sports. homework is more important, don't forget a multitude of studies show kids who play sports have higher test score, go on to complete college, have higher incomes and the emotional and physical well-being. >> and learning what teamwork is. >> i don't know where i'd be without playing sports. so many areas of your life. >> i was shocked at how low kids put winning there. >> me too and yet parents put it high and shows you where the disconnect is. our series "the new beauty boom" from face-lifts to tummy tucks there are over 10 million cosmetic procedures performed every year in the u.s. alone. now new technology may allow to
you see the potential results of your surgery without going under the knife. abc's deborah roberts has more. >> reporter: cosmetic surgery, it's a $12 billion industry. and the procedures are getting better all the time. but the biggest question patients ask, what will i look like after? now you can hold the after in your hand with a revolutionary new technology where doctors can create an actual mold of your body using a 3d printer with a look they hope to achieve. >> it's a complete game changer for patients. >> reporter: montefiore hospital doctors who happens to be the brother of dr. jen ashton say 3d sculptures have successly remodeled their practice. >> there's a lot of anxiety around what am i going to look like when it's all done. >> oh, my gosh. this is wild. >> reporter: surgeons have been using the models on screen for years. i a chance to experience it last
year. but doctors tepper and garfind say taking that image from the computer to your hands changes everything. how do the patients react when you're able to show them these kinds of models? >> now when we can show them a 3d sculpture of their face with their new nose is a completely different world for us. >> reporter: a new world that put 30-year-old margaret lembo at ease when she needed nose work to help a sinus condition. dr. tepper offered to smooth out the bump on her nose and relieved to see the 3d after model before the surgery. >> i can actually hold it and see it. these are my eyes, nose,lys. a whole complete different experience. >> reporter: some patients take the sculptures home to get their family's opinion and doctors use them as a guide in the operating room. >> i think it's made me a better surgeon. i think it's made my partners better and i think our patients are happier. >> reporter: the molds range from $50 to $100. a small price some patients say for a bit more peace of mind.
>> i know that i still have a little bit more recovery to go but i know the end results are going to be beautiful. >> reporter: for "good morning america," deborah roberts, abc news, new york. >> joining us now dr. jennifer ashton. your baby brother. >> that's him. >> two doctors in the family. >> there you go. >> impressive. 3d printing has come along. how about in cosmetic surgery? >> this is really an exam of patient specific medical devices and it's used to help reconstructive plastic surgeons for accident patients, patients dealing with cancer treatments in their preoperative planning, in their intraoperative precision, it's also helpful in giving the patient an idea of their expectations because managing expectations is so important so i took one for the team. -- this is me normally if you can call it that. >> oh, come on. >> this is me with a rhinoplasty or simulation of a new nose and see it here in a different dimension and this can be very, very important for patients to
really understand, this is what i will look like. >> to be able to see it like that. >> right. >> is there any downside to this technology? >> the downside you might be disappointed. plastic surgery is as much an art as science but this is where their precision comes into play. >> okay, so if you can afford this. >> right. >> sore you just would rather not go under the knife what are some options. >> first you have to understand of the anatomy behind aging. when you look at it think of it in terms of three layers of skin, the bugging of our aging is due to sun damage and that will produce fereckle, sun spot and wrinkles. a layer deeper as we age we have a loss of volume. we lose fat, collagen from keeping our face plump and then if you look one layer deeper, we have a sagging of these ligaments they're called retaining ligaments of the face and they're really the things that hold our skin and soft tissue up. that's not going to be treated with a cream. >> as i said when you go into
the drugstore, you are bombarded with all these -- online. there was something if you call in the first 100 -- >> let me know when you find one. >> what about all we see. >> there's incredible science and technology even with topicals. if you're going to go for something like a cream or a lotion, you want to read the ingredients and look for a couple of things. you want to look for retinoids, growth factors, peptides and then if you can't do those you're talking about injectable fillers with high ronnic acid which is key and radiofrequency therapy is important in tightening. when you find it let me know. if i find something i'll let you know. >> she read the ingredients on my box, right in the garbage. oops. i will not reveal the brand. thank you, dr. ashton. >> she'll take your questions on twitter throughout the morning. tweet her @jashton. outside to ginger who needs nothing. she's perfect. >> thanks, robin. we have a globtrotter edition of
weather. so much fun behind me. i'll let you look at that while i go over the severe storm forecast. that is severely sweet. severe storms in the southwest, phoenix, you could see some of those damaging winds, a little hail in the forecast too and then we had a frost yesterday morning in killington, vermont, thank you scotty for sending that fall pic. the fall air, not in the middle of the nation. kansas city, 74, oklahoma city, tonight mostly clear with pahy fog. low 57. more sunshine through ursday. a cold front brings a f few shers on friday, then sunny and cooler for the weekend with highs in the upper 60s to lower0s.
>> all right, lara, let's go in to "pop." >> "pop news" is on this morning. with some good news to start with. tracy morgan continues to show he's getting stronger by getting back to doing what he loves. the "30 rock star" will toast and perhaps roast one of his heroes eddie murphy who is receiving the mark twain prize for american humor. that is, of course, the nation's top prize for humor and it happens at the kennedy center in washington. the ceremony will feature lots of big names along with tracy, "snl" alum kevin nealon and chris rock will pay tribute to the comedy legend along with our friend kathy griffin and trevor no noah. it will be broadcast on pbs on november 23rd. we'll be watching. us nice to watch. >> it's my birthday. >> ah ch. have a cake for you. it'll be fun and watch comedy. but first a lot more "pop news" to get to.
>> please. >> we all feel guilty about binge-watching a little bit but this morning a "pop news" investigation. there you see it, people. we're getting rid of that guilt for good because a new study published by the american psychological association has found watching award-winning tv dramas makes you a more empathetic person. more than 100 participants were shown dramas including "mad men" and "the west wing" and given a test to measure emotional intelligence. those who watched the dramas performed better than people who watched documentaries suggesting that dramas help us better understand other people. no word yet on what your "real housewives" addiction says about your personality. >> or "walking dead." >> i think empathy. >> i feel sorry for all those people who can't die. >> you see, you're emotionally intelligent which we knew already. then finally in "pop news" this morning, they say revenge is a dish best served cold.
but if you ask this karma endorsing canine, revenge is a dish best served sandy. oh. take a look at what happens when this little girl gets a little pushy, so he doesn't like it much. oh. >> that's right, sucker. and you thought sunburn was your biggest concern. >> that's hilarious. >> he's still going. >> you want to push me, lady. >> has some emotional intelligence. >> obviously a binge-watcher. >> oh. >> that is "pop news," everybody on this tuesday. >> that's hilarious. >> and coming up, stephenie meyer here, author of "twilight" with a big surprise this morning. and the trotters have a surprise, as well, the harlem globetrotters. >> i believe for you, robin. >> but they're also here with an initiative and i guarantee you'll smile.
>> good morning. we want to get an update on the forecast right now. here is meteorologist jacqui jeras. >> waking up to beautiful sunshine today. we have a cool start here this morning. i do expect mild temperatures this afternoon, warmer than yesterday by about 5 degrees. expecting mostly sunny skies today. temperatures will be holding in the 60s by the lunch hour. about 67 degrees and we'll top out in the middle 70s this afternoon. tomorrow, the warmest day of the week, and a dry one to look forward to. no rain in the forecast until friday afternoon. a nice weekend, though, ahead. >> starting in the district, we take a peek at the tuesday morning commute we have westbound congestion on the southeast southwest freeway, northbound at the 3rd street bridge, because of this blocking of the right lane heavy delays on the freeway traveling westbound toward the 11th street bridge. if you're on 29abw parkway,
kenilworth avenue you're on the brakes, bumber to bumber traffic. same for i270. no accidents but close to a 40 men drive from clarksburg to the 270 spur traveling southbound. northbound on i395 going to be a slow ride from the capital beltway to the 14th street bridge. back to you. >> anchor: all right. thank you. to our top stories now, streets are back open around the tenly down station after a pedestrian accident. 2 people in their 50s were hit by a car. they did not have the green light to walk. and changes if you take amtrak north. for 2 days train 55 you usually originating in vermont will start in springfield, massachusetts heading south. train 56 starting here at union station will go as far as spring field. this after a train derailed in vermont yesterday. for a look at more headlines, traffic, weather. head over to good morning washington live on news channel

it's the same story but it is a new version of it. >> how is it different? because it's a gender bender. >> now bella is beau and edward is edythe and wanted to do something fun for the tenth anniversary and publisher wanted a foreword. maybe something more interesting. >> i'll rewrite everything. how much changed by the way. >> you know, the further you get in the more it changes because the personals get a little different but starts out similar and really it is the same story because it's just a love story and doesn't matter who is the boy and girl. it still works out. >> why did you decide to write it this way? >> as i was trying to think of something to do, something that -- a question had come up at a lot of signings about bella being a damsel in distress and bothered me because anyone surrounded by superheroes is going to be -- >> a mere human. >> we don't have the powers, right? i thought what if we switched around and see how a boy does? it's about the same. >> we have a bunch of your die-hard fans in the studio with
advanced copies. [ cheers and applause ] >> pretty funny because i was told they didn't have microphones and they didn't need them. now i know why because they're all screaming. it sounds like they're liking what what they read. "twilight" did spur a lot of girl power in terms of gender, we saw, you know, bella there as just such a heroine and human or not she was a rock star. what do you think this reimaging of the story will do to the narrative and what people think of. >> i wonder if it will change how people look at bella to sear her as a him but i really do feel like it's very much the same thing so i guess my hope is that maybe the younger readers will be reintroduced because a lot of my readers are ten years older and a whole new generation. >> you know what, it's so interesting when you see what these books and what bella the character sparked a lot o people to say there wouldn't have been a katniss from "the hunger games" if not for bella. naming all of my daughters'
favorite books and movies and characters and they all really came from you. that has to feel pretty powerful. >> i don't think so. i am positive katniss would still exist. there are some really great stories and wonderful if "twilight" opened the door for anyone a little bit but these stories would have found their readers absolutely. >> we were told that "fifty shades of grey" started out. did you ever imagine it would inspire other authors? >> no, not at all. when i first started writing i didn't know what fan fiction was so that was a new thing to find out it was out there. i wish it was around when i was reading. i think i would have liked to join in some of the stories that i read as a child. >> could beau be a start of a new series? >> no, i don't think so. >> you have three sons. i mentioned my daughters are huge fans of the series. you've said before your sons did not read the "twilight" series. do you think they'll read this now? >> they've had their chance. i made them copies and made my
own little cover for it. good morning, seth. and they -- when it's your mom and you are the one who has to go to school and get teased it turns off a lot of the fun. >> or, wow, that's your mom. how about that and what about a film version. have you thought of who could play the roles. >> a little bit. i don't see that happening and a lot would be like grace kelly so it's a little too late for some of my first choices? i'm sure they'll come up with something. stephenie meyer, congratulations on "life and death," the tenth anniversary edition of "twilight" including this bonus content "life and death" available right now and stephenie meyer is stick around to answer your questions on our website after the show. tweet them to goodmorningamerica.com on yahoo! and watch her live fan chat in just a bit. lara, out to you. >> thank you so much, amy. it was an emotional night in the ballroom. the celebrities on "dancing with the stars" performing routines that were inspired by their most memorable years.
