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.
