Everyone's clamoring for the fourth book in the 'Fifty Shades' trilogy, which makes me laugh. Just the part of 'a fourth book in trilogy' that makes me laugh, not the clamoring for the next book.
Yes, I'm a 'Twi-hard.' I became obsessed. Absolutely obsessed. I didn't watch television, I didn't go to the cinema. My friends would ring and say: 'What are you doing?' And I would say: 'I've just got to finish this chapter.'
I think women love to read love stories.
I never set out to do this - getting to No. 1 in the 'New York Times' bestseller list wasn't even a pipedream.
I value my anonymity. I'm happy to come in on the tube or the train and watch other people reading 'Fifty Shades.'
I see myself as a story teller.
I hate having my photograph taken.
I'm looking forward to getting back to my house and my Ugg boots and not washing sometimes, and getting back to writing.
Write for yourself. That's it. And write every day.
I'm a bit of a control freak.
I've worked in television all my life, but really I've always wanted to work in the movies.
I've set the bar quite high in terms of storytelling.
God forbid that women have fantasies.
Women basically want the same thing - a good passionate story, a great fantasy - and for our partners to do the laundry and the washing up.
All a writer wants is to be read, and people are so flattering and lovely. I mean, there are witches out there as well. But most are so kind.
I think women love a passionate love story.
If you've been married for 400 years, as I have, it's nice to experience first love again and you can vicariously through a book.
I don't watch much British television at all. I mean, it's ironic because I used to work in it for years.
I'm not a great writer.
Once you're in charge of your job, your house, your children, getting the food on the table, doing all of this, all of the time, it'd be nice for someone else to be in charge for a bit maybe.
I came up with a story and I wrote it.
I really like clever men who challenge you.
[on 'Fifty Shades of Grey' ] I wrote the books really just to entertain myself. The fact that they've entertained a whole lot of other people is just thrilling. My only ambition when I published this was to see it one day in a book-shop. So everything has been, like, 'Holy crap!'
