Well anyone can sue anyone for anything. The question is do they have a case. I would think not, unless there was something in the contract that stated the author was a boy.What it really sounds like is that the film wasn't going anywhere and some people were trying to get some of their money back and this is just an excuse.
I think the issue was that she tried to pass off a fictional story as a true account of someone who never really existed. I'm sure that a pen name would be just fine if she didn't try to claim that it was a real life story.
This intrigues me. Dan Brown wrote a false account of something in history and people think its true and its fine.This author makes up a person (as all fiction writers do) and tell a story as that person.Just sounds like a pen name to me. But I couldn't tell from the article if the author went around marketing as this person or just created the identity to write the story.Interesting.
