The erotica novel by British author EL James started out as fan fiction based on Meyer's Twilight Saga. In a new interview, Meyer claimed that she has not read the best-selling novel, in spite of inspiring it.
"I haven't read it," Meyer told MTV News. "I mean, that's really not my genre, not my thing.
"I've heard about it; I haven't really gotten into it that much. Good on [James] - she's doing well. That's great!"
Meyer went on to say that she does not take credit for James's story, adding that she thinks that James would have written it without the inspiration of The Twilight Saga.
"It might not exist in the exact form that it's in," Meyer said. "Obviously, [James] had a story in her, and so it would've come out in some other way."
Fifty Shades of Grey is currently being developed into a movie.
