You might be interested in what Stephenie Meyer has to say about Fifty Shades – the trilogy that was inspired by her Twilight series.

She said she hasn’t read it yet, but she is honoured by it.

“I mean, good honor,” Meyer recently told MTV. “She’s doing well. That’s great.”

The series started out as Twilight-inspired fan fiction called “Master of the Universe” before it was re-worked and published.

Meyer, who is Mormon, explains why she has not read the series yet.

“That’s really not my genre,” she told MTV. “Not my thing.”

But she does believe the E.L. James series would have existed if not for Twilight, although perhaps in a slightly different form.
