In an interview with USA Weekend, the bestselling author compared Meyer with J.K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter series.To be fair, Stephen also criticizes other authors for sucky writing. Maybe he was just being bitchy. You can read the original USA Weekend article here.
According to Stephen, “Both Rowling and Meyer, they’re speaking directly to young people… The real difference is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer and Stephenie Meyer can’t write worth a darn. She’s not very good.”
In any case, maybe these Twilight Band-aids can help with the sting, Stephenie! Twilight is the series that launched a thousand products & a cultural phenomena. Take that, Stephen King!
