About the Writer

The mastermind behind After is Anna Todd, a first-time writer who uses Wattpad to connect directly to her fans about After and get feedback about the series. She also expands the After story world beyond Wattpad, using Instagram and Twitter to share photos, videos, songs, and art created by readers. When not writing on Wattpad, Anna loves to read, often finishing two to three books a week. Her favorite books include 50 Shades of Grey and Beautiful Bastard. Anna is married and lives in Central Texas.
