Twilight author Stephenie Meyer 'accused of theft'


Twilight author Stephenie Meyer has revealed she was accused of stealing material from a fan fiction e-book.

Speaking to Mark Lawson on BBC Radio 4's Front Row, Meyer said another writer had tried to sue her but it "didn't go anywhere".

The writer said the lawsuit was over the use of a traditional wedding vows scene on a beach in one of her novels.

"It was an interesting thing to have someone come at you to say that those elements had been stolen," she said.

The full interview will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Front Row on Monday 11 March.
