Meyer could be sued for alleged Twilight plagiarism

6th August 2009

Twilight author Stephanie Meyer could be sued for the alleged plagiarism of another writer's work.

Twilight is the first in a series of books written by Ms Meyer about a vampire, but has been followed by three more titles based on the same character.

The Nocturne author Jordon Scott has sent a letter to publisher Hachette Book Group, claiming that portions of Ms Meyer's fourth book in the series Breaking Dawn bear a striking resemblance to his own.

Mr Scott's lawyer J Craig Williams told Reuters that his client believes the two books share word-for-word similarities, similar plots and character points.

He told the news agency: 'I think the fans have to read both books and make up their own mind, like a judge is going to have to.'

A movie based on the first book Twilight was released across cinemas in 2008 and picked up Best Movie, Best Female Performance and Best Fight at the MTV Movie Awards.

The next instalment in the Twilight movie saga, New Moon, is set to be released later this year.
