'Fifty Shades of Grey' author: Books were my 'midlife crisis'

Breakout author E.L. James - the woman behind that deliciously racy novel “Fifty Shades of Grey” - admits that the motivation behind her steamy storylines was actually her own “midlife crisis.”

"It's all my fantasies in one thing," the British writer said of her publishing hit and its two sequels in a recent interview with ABC’s “20/20."

“It's a contemporary, romantic fiction, with quite a lot of sex in it," James, who is married with two teenage sons, said of the trilogy's popularity. "I think it's the love story... I hope it's because of the love story."

Tupac, and other virtual versions of artists we want to see on tour

However, a rep for Dr. Dre tells CNN that any talk about a potential tour is "premature."
