'Twilight' Author Sued for Vampire Rip-Off

Posted Aug 19th 2009 9:22PM by TMZ Staff

Stephenie Meyer The author of the "Twilight" series is being sued by a woman who claims the 4th installment is a rip-off of her work.

Jordan Scott claims in her lawsuit, filed today in federal court, that she began writing a novel "in the vampire genre" when she was just 15 -- back in 2003. The novel was published in 2006 and called "The Nocturne."

Scott claims the 4th installment of Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight" series lifted her work. She says Meyer's book -- "Breaking Dawn" is a "significant literary departure from [her] early books..." She says it seems the book is "written by a teenager." Yes, Scott was a teenager when she wrote "The Nocturne."

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

Scott is asking for damages, and that the court impound the "Breaking Dawn" books that are being sold.

I never thought that BD felt like it was written by a teenager. It has a very adult feel to it. I checked out this book by Jordan Scott All I have to say is that I did not like it and it was quite different to Stephanie's in my opinion I hope it gets resolved becasue that could hurt the chances of BD being made into a movie.
