Songs that inspired Fifty Shades Of Grey author EL James

By Jemma Crew

Fifty Shades Of Grey author EL James has revealed the unusual inspiration behind her latest book.

During an online question and answer session, the writer said two artists in particular helped her to write her latest book: Fleetwood Mac and Bill Withers.

The author had reportedly told fans that she had listened to one song on repeat while writing Grey, which was released last month.

When asked over Twitter which song had inspired her, she replied: "Two: Sara by Fleetwood Mac and Hello Like Before by Bill Withers."

But fans can be reassured that Grey is not the last they will be hearing from EL James. The author said she had completed one book and was half-way through another - "Both romances. Not sure when I will finish them."
