“I write slowly. I actually write very quickly but I throw a lot of it out”
Dan Brown has made a name for himself in recent years because of his incredibly thriller fiction that often features a 24-hour treasure hunt and motifs of Christianity. He is known best for his novel The Da Vinci Code, which was made into a film of the same name. Dan’s books have been translated into 52 languages and have sold over 200 million copies worldwide.
In his international blockbusters The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons, and The Lost Symbol, Dan Brown masterfully fused history, art, codes, and symbols. In this riveting new thriller, Brown returns to his element and has crafted his highest-stakes novel to date.
In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology Robert Langdon is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces . . . Dante’s Inferno.
Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust . . . before the world is irrevocably altered.
Writing wasn’t Dan’s original calling. He originally sought a musical career, creating effects with a synthesizer and other musical technology. He produced a children’s cassette entitled SynthAnimals which sold a few hundred copies. His writing career started while in vacation in Tahiti where he became inspired to become a writer of thrillers. In 1985, he started his first novel Digital Fortress, and he co-wrote a humour book with his wife under the pseudonym Danielle Brown.
Dan Brown regularly gives back to the community. In 2004, Brown and his siblings donated $2.2 million to Phillips Exeter Academy to help provide computers and high-tech equipment for students in need. He and his wife are also supporters of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation and in 2011 they created an eponymous scholarship fund for a permanently endowed scholarship fund at the college to provide financial age to students.
His most popular novels feature Robert Langdon, a university professor of religious iconology. These novels include Angels & Demons, The Da Vinci Code, The Lost Symbol and Inferno.
