Recently I came across the controversy surrounding the book series The Selection and it made me remember some of the drama that surrounded authors of other popular novels so I decided to make a post in hopes of finding out some more juicy stories.
1. Cassandra Clare- The Mortal Instruments
She's the author of the popular series of books called "The Mortal Instruments" who she based on her own Harry Potter fanfiction "The Draco Trilogy" which plagiarised Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Blackadder, The Secret Country (book by Pamela Dean) and more. When she became a published author, she changed her pen last name from Claire to Clare so she would avoid the general public googling her and finding out about the plagiarism and why she was banned from fanfiction.net. She had her lawyer friend threathen people who called her out on her plagiarism, called the police on people who disagreed with her, tried to get a girl kicked out of her University...Here's an old ONTD post about it: https://ohnotheydidnt.livejournal.com/73559683.html
