Brad Meltzer is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Inner Circle, The Book of Fate, and nine other bestselling thrillers. In addition to his fiction, Brad is one of the only authors to ever have books on the bestseller list for Non-Fiction (History Decoded), Advice (Heroes for My Son and Heroes for My Daughter), Children’s Books (I Am Amelia Earhart and I Am Abraham Lincoln) and even comic books (Justice League of America), for which he won the prestigious Eisner Award.

He is also the host of Brad Meltzer’s Decoded on the History Channel, and Brad Meltzer’s Lost History on H2. The Hollywood Reporter recently put him on their list of Hollywood’s 25 Most Powerful Authors.

Thanks to his TV show, Brad is also responsible for helping find the missing 9/11 flag that the firefighters raised at Ground Zero, making national news on the recent 15th anniversary of 9/11.

For sure, it’s tough to find anyone being so successful in so many different mediums of the popular culture. But why does Brad thrive in all these different professions? His belief that ordinary people change the world. It is that core belief that runs through every one of his projects.

But what will inspire and dazzle audiences is Meltzer’s personal story, which took him from the loss of his father’s job, to the #1 spot on the bestseller list. Twice. It is a story filled with perseverance, focus, and the commitment to one’s dream. And thanks to his recent nonfiction hits, Heroes For My Son and Heroes For My Daughter, it is a story filled with the inspirational tales of the Wright Brothers, Abraham Lincoln, Rosa Parks, Jim Henson, Mr. Rogers and more. It is a story that has been told to corporate leaders, industry heads, U.S. Senators, Supreme Court Justices, and even recurring invitations from a former U.S. President. Brad is always entertaining, but in this book he wrote for his son and daughter, he is simply one of the most inspiring speakers you’ll hear.

Meltzer is a graduate of the University of Michigan and Columbia Law School.

His books have spent over a year on the bestseller lists, and have been translated into over 25 languages, from Hebrew to Bulgarian. Meltzer has played himself as an extra in Woody Allen's Celebrity and earned credit from Columbia Law School for writing his first book, which became The Tenth Justice. Before all of that, he got 24 rejection letters for his true first novel, which still sits on his shelf, published by Kinko's.

Meltzer has appeared on NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox News, and the top TV shows in the country, including The Today Show, The O’Reilly Factor, Good Morning America, CNN, Fox & Friends, Lou Dobbs Tonight and dozens more. He’s been featured everywhere including Vanity Fair, USA Today, People Magazine, Time Magazine, Newsweek, Entertainment Weekly, New York Times, Washington Post, and nearly every major newspaper in the country, which is why he’s been called “America’s Historian.”

What’s Your Legacy?

On the night Brad Meltzer’s first son was born, he began collecting heroes for his boy. And for nearly a decade, Meltzer studied these heroes throughout history. From Thomas Jefferson (who had the humility to never publicly take credit for writing the Declaration of Independence) to the Wright Brothers (who brought extra materials to every test flight, anticipating their own failure) to George Washington to Rosa Parks to Mr. Rogers, Meltzer reminds us that their stories are not about fame they're about what we are all capable of on our very best days. See why Meltzer’s book on heroes- from Jackie Robinson, to Abraham Lincoln, to Eleanor Roosevelt- shot up the inspirational bestseller list. Let Meltzer teach you how to find the real hero in your life. And the power of never letting anyone tell you ‘No.’
