Dan Brown is blessed with a talent to both, music writing and fiction writing. Nevertheless he stated his career as a teacher. Dan worked as an English teacher at Phillips Exeter Academy (just like his father) and enjoyed discussing the books with his students. Thus he was prepared for writing activity. He knew which themes were interesting for the younger generation.
Brown was inspired to write his first novel “Digital Fortress” in late 1990s after the incident, which happened at Exeter. One day the representatives of American Secret Service came to his classroom. They were looking for a boy, who had written in E-mail to his friend that he wanted to kill American President. Of course, the pupil joked, but Dan Brown got interested in the work of the US Secret Service, which knew everything about personal mailing of his pupil. This unusual situation inspired Dan to do some research. He discovered many shocking details, which described in his first novel. Brown considers his “Digital Fortress” as a chase story, although it is full of technical descriptions.
Now Dan Brown can boast with numerous novels, like “The Lost Symbol”, “Deception Point” and famous “The Da Vinci Code”, which was filmed by Ron Howard.
