Anna Todd: From 1D fan fiction to feature film writer

At 24 years old, Anna Todd felt her life had come to a bit of a standstill.

"I was a struggling army wife going to community college who didn't know what to do with my life," she tells the BBC. "I would read a lot of fan fiction on [publishing website] Wattpad and felt I had read everything so one day I decided to write a chapter." That chapter, the start of a story based on One Direction singer Harry Styles, would eventually be turned into a book series and now a Hollywood film. Now 29, the Ohio native has published five books in the After series and three other novels.
