Brown grew up in the dorms of Phillips Exeter Academy in Exeter, NH, where his father taught mathematics. Subsequently graduating from there and Amherst College, he returned to Phillips Exeter to teach English until he turned to full-time writing. He had started writing children’s books when he was five and developed an interest in bringing science and religion together while in prep school. The result? The Da Vinci Code. By 2005, TIME magazine named him one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World. His seven adult novels were translated into at least 56 languages and sold over 200 million copies. Brown’s latest novel, Origin, explores two of the fundamental questions of humankind: Where do we come from? Where are we going?
