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 did a search to find out more about The Nocturne and seen that a lot of people are wanting to read it now that they say Breaking Dawn has copied it. That seems to be working out for Jordan Scott since people are running out and buying it now to compare. So guess she is getting some money out of it all.

I agree with Maria Wishart there will always be someone there to try and get a little peice of the pie but thats about all they can do is TRY!!!

Of course theres going to be similarities its a Vampire book/Movie almost all Vampire movies have the same theme such as Interview with the Vampire Louis was always tormented as is Jasper and so on and so on. Come on peeps get a grip leave it alone!
