American author of the bestselling "Da Vinci Code" made into a movie starring Tom Hanks and Audrey Tatou. The novel and movie stirred up quite a controversy in the conservative wing of the Catholic Church as it suggests that Jesus and Mary Magdalene had a child who carried the blood line of the holy family.
Brown won a lawsuit in 2006 brought by Baigent and his colleagues, authors of "Holy Blood, Holy Grail." The plaintiffs claimed that Brown stole their ideas; Brown claimed that their book was one of many he researched.
The son of a mathematics professor, Richard G. Brown and his wife Connie, a therapist, Brown grew up in an intellectual household. He was the youngest of three kids, whose dad taught at the prestigious Exeter Academy, which the young Dan attended. Dan Brown went on to Harvard. In 1997 he married Bythe Newlon who was, according to one report, born on December 11, 1952 in Palmdale, CA. A search of the California birth index however yielded no one with that name or similar. They live in Exeter, NH and, after the lawsuit was won, Brown and his wife built a tall fence around their house to keep out intruders, fans and enemies alike.
