Dan Brown wiki & biography:
Dan Brown is an American writer with anestimated net worth of $120 million. Dan is5’8and weighs165pounds. The son of a math teacher and church organist, Dan grew up on the campus of an exclusive prep school where his dad instructed. The interplay between religion and science was a constant subject in Dan’s life from early on and would continue to be the basis of much of his writing. He was the oldest of three children and also the household was filled with riddles, symbols along with other codes. At Christmas the kids were frequently sent on treasure hunts to locate their gifts.
After faculty, Dan attempted a career as a musician and moved to Hollywood in 1991. He released two records, including one entitled Angels and Demons (the name of a future novel), while supporting himself by teaching in a prep school. He failed to acquire any notoriety or financial success but Dan did meet his future wife, Blythe Newlon, and eventually the two moved back to New Hampshire. Dan started instructing at his former school. While on vacation in Tahiti in 1993, he read Sydney Sheldon’s The Doomsday Conspiracy and was inspired to eventually become an author. He quit teaching and began work on his first novel, The Digital Fortress, which was released in 1998. Soon afterward, Dan began writing his second and third novels, Angels & Demons and Deception Point, which were printed in 2000 and 2001. Although not one of the novels enjoyed much success, his fourth novel, The Da Vinci Code, would catapult Dan to global acclaim.
The Da Vinci Code was published in 2003 and went to the top of The New York Times Best Seller List in its first week. In total it has sold over 81 million copies and eventually boosted sales of his other novels. The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons would continue to become successful movies starring Tom Hanks as the lead character Robert Langdon. There are over 200 million copies of his books in print.
