To begin with, Meltzer first grew up in Brooklyn, and later in South Florida, where he matriculated from North Miami Beach Senior High School in 1988. After graduating from the University of Michigan, Meltzer initially lived in Beacon Hill, Boston, where he wrote his first novel, before completing his second degree in Law at Columbia Law School.

Concerning his subsequent professional career, Meltzer published his first novel – “The Tenth Justice” – in 1998, followed by seven others, which were commercially successful, so that they entered the bestseller list of the New York Times. As a comic author, Meltzer wrote sixteen editions of the adventure series “Green Arrow” (2002), the miniseries “Identity Crisis” (2004) and the series “Justice League of America” (2007). “Identity Crisis” sold very well, because of the taboo subject of cowardice in dealing with a serial rapist. In addition, Meltzer was a co-creator of the TV series “Jack & Bobby” (2004-05). All added to his net worth.

In 2010, Meltzer published his first non-fiction book “The Heroes for My Son” a book he had worked on for nearly a decade since the birth of his first child. The book is part of a two-book deal released by Meltzer’s publisher, and is a collection of life stories from 52 people such as Jim Henson, Rosa Parks and Mr. Rogers; it debuted at number 2 on the list of bestsellers of New York Times.

Meltzer was then the host of the History Channel’s “Decoded” series, which was broadcast from 2010 to 2012. Recently, works of Meltzer that have been published include the novel “The House of Secrets” (2016), books for children “I Am Martin Luther King, Jr.” (2016), “I Am George Washington” (2016) and “I Am Jane Goodall” (2016). Currently, he is working on his next novel, and is scripting some editions of the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” television series.

Some interesting facts: while conducting research for his novel “The Inner Circle”, the former USA president George W. Bush gave Meltzer a copy of the secret letter which was left at the Bill Clinton Oval Office counter. In 2006, Meltzer, along with representatives of the CIA, the FBI, psychologists of various disciplines and members of the Department of Internal Security, was a member of a working group dealing with new methods that terrorists could use in attacks in the USA.

Finally, in the personal life of the writer, Brad married Cori Flam in 1995, and they have two children. They now live in South Florida.
