Dan Brown

Born on June 22, 1964, in Exeter, New Hampshire, author Dan Brown attended Phillips Exeter Academy and graduated from Amherst College. After initially attempting to become a musician, Brown published Digital Fortress in 1998. His next novel, Angels & Demons (2000), introduced “professor of symbology” Robert Langdon, but it was his fourth novel, The Da Vinci Code (2003), that propelled Brown to fame as a best-selling author. The Da Vinci Code was adapted for film in 2006, with Tom Hanks in the role of Robert Langdon, and Brown continued the popular series with The Lost Symbol (2009), Inferno (2013) and Origin (2017).
