E.L. James appeared on the Sept. 17 episode of ‘Katie’ — revealing intimate details about her hit trilogy ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ and how ‘Twilight’ inspired her to write the best-selling series. Read on for more details!
“Well, it all started way back in the day when I saw ‘Twilight,’ the film, and I loved those books — I could not put [them] down, absolutely avidly read the books,” E.L. James told Katie.
“This switch was flipped. I had to write — started writing, wrote a novel, then I discovered fan fiction,” the author continued. ”[I] wrote about Edward and Bella and then decided to write about Christian and Anastasia. I took the fan [fiction], and a friend of mine re-wrote it and I thought — if he could do it, so could I, and now I am here.”
Can you believe it? E.L. James got her inspiration for Fifty Shades of Grey from our favorite book series The Twilight Saga!
