Anna Todd on her Harry Styles erotica and the thirst for fan fiction
Anna Todd on her highly fan-driven, interactive and celebrity-obsessed brand of writing.
Rising young writer Anna Todd has just signed a six-figure, three-book deal for After, her erotic fan fiction series inspired by Harry Styles of British boy band One Direction.
