Curious about EL James, author of erotic fantasy fiction "Fifty Shades of Grey"? The Twihard, who started out writing "Twilight" fan fiction before penning her own trilogy (which has been bought for the movies, under her control, by Universal and Focus Features), has been on a promo tour as her three Vintage books have sold 3 million digital and print copies in less than a month and top the New York Times bestseller list. They are also bestsellers in the UK, New Zealand and Australia. Translated books are about to hit other countries too.

Erika Leonard, who prefers to be called EL, is a plump 40ish British ex-BBC production exec, has two kids, and her husband helped to edit the books. She learned a lot about S & M doing research on the internet. (What she and her husband do is private.) Here's The Observer, USA Today, Newsday, and The View.

She won't weigh in on who should play her lovers Christian and Anastasia; she went with Focus because they have successfuly brought challenging material to the screen, including "Brokeback Mountain."

    Yes, why ruin an article about this great author with the word "plump"? SO rude.
