AUTHOR of the Twilight series of books, Stephenie Meyer, is being sued by a woman who says Meyer copied her work, said media reports on Thursday.

Jordan Scott is claiming that Meyer's book, Breaking Dawn, is based on her own book, The Nocturne.

Scott wrote the book when she was 15 years old and it was published in 2006 reported entertainment website TMZ.

According to Scott, the books "show striking, articulable and substantial similarities in the... plot lines, themes, dialogue, mood, setting, pace, characters, sequence of events, ideas and other similarities."

TMZ has previously reported on the story, listing the similarities claimed by Scott, who sent Meyer a detailed letter stating the same claims.

Some of the scenes Scott says have been copied include a post-wedding sex scene, and a scene involving the death of a main character's wife, said TMZ.

TMZ was told by Meyer's representative: "The claim that Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer somehow infringes on an alleged book by someone named Jordan Scott is completely without merit.

"Neither Stephenie Meyer nor her representatives had any knowledge of this writer or her supposed book prior to this claim," they told TMZ.

However Scott has now decided to pursue her claims and is taking Meyer to court.

I read alot of vampire fiction and there are similarities between so many different books that came both before and after Twilight was published. Many of the books have similar ideas, similar story lines or set ups... this woman is just trying to snag her 15 minutes... when you're on top there's always gonna be someone to try and tear you down

a scene involving the death of a main character's wife Was I reading the same book?

Twilight Lexicon already debunked the insanity of this accusation, thankfully.

Someone just wanting to get in on the Twilight fame I guess. I read somewhere too, the last time this was posted that she just wanted to stop Breaking Dawn from being made into a movie, that she didn't want any money or anything.
I really hope this don't make it very far.
So many books have similar stories lines. I'm kind of wondering just how similar she claims BD to be though. Maybe I'll check out The Nocturne to see.
