Hi Arlind!
It’s funny how many people ask me this question. It’s true that Langdon and I share a fascination with history, symbols, and codes, but this is where the similarities end. Langdon leads a far more adventurous life than I do, and he is certainly more daring than I am. He is, in many ways, the hero I wish I could be.(less)

I was thrilled simply to be published, and the fact that they were printing only a few thousand books did not bother me in the least. I felt like I was on my way.
Ten years and three books later, I was still publishing novels, but I was struggling with low sales. I worked two teaching jobs to pay my rent while I wrote my next manuscript – an art history thriller. After submitting the manuscript to my new publisher Doubleday, I embarked on a much needed vacation into the rain forests of Costa Rica. I had virtually no connection to the outside world, but several weeks into the trip, my agent managed to reach me through an email sent to a tiny internet café; she told me to come home right away because the pre-orders for my recently submitted manuscript were growing quickly -- faster than any of us could imagine.
By the time I got home, the pre-orders had outpaced the sales of my previous three novels combined, and it became clear that my upcoming book – The Da Vinci Code – was going to be my first successful novel.(less)

Therese Straker Hi Dan, Your book had been on my list for sometimes. While on holiday, I read Digital Fortress. You are an outstanding writer. I got so immersed in the story that I felt asleep reading it. I’d visited Jean cathedral on holiday in Spain. My goodness, there a great Fortress to get creative! You are an amazing writing.

My creative skill. You, Me, and the goldfish- don't come close to your talent. I respect such genius as yourself. I’ll continue reading the rest of your fabulous books.

Adinda Putri Mr. Dan Brown, thanks for accepting my friend request. :)


Pratik Kamat Dan Brown is the single greatest thriller working today. Period. I started writing because of him. When I was writing my book I always had his books on my table for inspiration. If I am a published author today, it is entirely because of him. Thanks a lot for inspiring me, Sir.

Terri Collins Great conversation with John Dankosky Saturday. Loved the meeting Blythe story, the comment on fiction being real life without the boring parts, and the Dante 3 headed story. Wasn't the Mark Twain house cool with all of the intricacies in design? At every turn I felt like I would look up and see SLC sitting in a chair, with pipe in hand, as though he were expecting visitors. Ha! In the lobby prior to "curtain" I was able to pick up "The Lost Symbol" illustrated version for my meager but unique library. Great evening and hope you have one next year as well. Best, Terri
