The Da Vinci Code made Dan Brown one of the most popular authors in history. Yet he’s also one of the most secretive, rarely granting interviews or making public appearances.
In this illuminating biography, Lisa Rogak uncovers the life of the high school English teacher and singer/songwriter who became one of the world’s bestselling writers. She recounts his bumpy road to publishing success and the legal battle that he fought and won. And she sheds light on the writing process--- and Brown’s fascination with puzzles and codes--- that has brought us Digital Fortress, Deception Point, Angels & Demons, The Da Vinci Code, The Lost Symbol, and Inferno.
For the first time in paperback, this revised-and-updated biography offers fans a chance to learn more about the author whose novels have captivated millions of readers.
