If you’re a fan of the Fifty Shades of Grey series, Fifty Shades Deeper will enhance your love for E.L. James’ books in an even deeper and more meaningful way. It might even help you explain to the doubters out there why the books aren’t just entertaining and intriguing – they’re important.
If you’re not a fan of FSOG and you’re scoffing, or perhaps mimicking Ana and rolling your eyes at the thought of the books being either deep or important, then we challenge you to open your mind and heart and take another look at the series through our eyes.
In addition to being the leader of the Fifty Shades Deeper Group, Brownell Landrum is an author, speaker, entrepreneur and innovator. Brownell’s writing includes four novels in the “metaphysical romance” DUET stories series, two children’s books in the Wonderactive Books! series: Sometimes I Wonder and This Isn’t My First Time, one nonfiction book entitled Five Reasons Why Bad Things Happen: How to Turn Tragedies into Triumph as well as several screenplays for film and television, short stories, and blogs. Brownell has also co-written a few songs, one of which, “While You Can,” was featured in the film Almost Home in 2015 and is available on iTunes.
A recurring theme in all of Brownell’s work and writing is delving deep into the “why.” When she read the Fifty Shades of Grey (FSOG) series, she was compelled to explore all of the deeper “whys” in the books, from “Were Ana and Christian destined to meet?” and “Had they known each other ‘before?’” to “What would have happened if Ana hadn’t left (at the end of the first book)?” and “How did Christian’s being born to a crack whore influence his life?” These questions – and dozens more – prompted her to create the Facebook discussion group Fifty Shades Deeper, from which this book is derived.
