Because why not try to publish something when your wife's once erotic Twilight fan-fiction has become one of the fastest selling paperbacks of all time AND whose movie version of the book might star Kristen Stewart, the original vampiric Ana Steele!
GET IN ON THAT $$$.
So apparently 50 Shades author E.L. James has a husband - Niall Leonard - who also writes stuff.
AND Random House Children's Publishing have picked up Niall's young adult thrill-novel titled Crusher, which follows a British high-school dropout who becomes the prime suspect in his father's murder.
Leonard recently shared:
“Crusher is a story I have wanted to write for years and it finally all came together last November when my wife encouraged me to take part in the Nanowrimo novel-writing event. I am thrilled and delighted that RHCP have picked up Crusher for publication, and it’s a fantastic honour to join the distinguished names on their writers’ list.”
Hmm! We wonder if he'll inject some thrillexy (thrillingly sexy) scenarios into Crusher, seeing as his wife is quite the scintillating storyteller …
But then it may not be so appropriate for his young adult audience!
