About Brownell

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. 

Brownell has a Master’s Degree in International Business and is also the inventor of DrawSuccess, a breakthrough process for employee development to accelerate performance, and DrawSuccess 4 Students, a transformational anti-bullying program for students and schools. 

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. 

Brownell is single and lives in Aspen, Colorado.
