How One Direction Superfan Anna Todd Went From Waffle House Waitress to Next-Big-Author With Erotic Fan-Fic Series 'After'

Even before she had fans, writer Anna Todd was a fan. “I was in the Josh Hartnett fan club when I was 13,” she recalls over lunch on a hot July day in Austin. “He sent me an autographed picture.” She’s the type of person who gets very excited about a pop novelty for a while, then replaces that passion with something else. “Almost everything that I’ve really liked,” the 26-year-old says, “I was, like, obsessed with.” At 20, it was 'Twilight' and Robert Pattinson. At 22, it was 'Fifty Shades of Grey.' At 23, it was the British boy band One Direction.
