Brown In Black And White

"All my novels are set in 24 hours...all of my novels use the concept of a simple hero pulled out of his familiar world...I intend to make Robert Langdon my primary character for years to come."

Slate magazine unearths Dan Brown's writing secrets. The article goes on:

"Brown's writing day begins at 4 a.m. He writes seven days a week. He keeps an hourglass on his desk and, on the hour, puts aside his manuscript to perform push-ups, sit-ups, and stretches. He does not like to write in the margins of books, but his wife doesn't feel that way. He is invariably delighted by anagrams."

Delighted by anagrams, eh? Here are a few he may like.

Dan Brown = Brand Now. Or even: Warn Bond.

And The DaVinci Code? Vain Coded Ethic. Or even: A Hectic Odd Vein.
