He may be best known for his series Decoded on the History Channel, but Brad Meltzer is interested in more than just political mysteries and conspiracy theories. Meltzer hassigned to pen a children’s book series focused on national heroes, called Ordinary People Can Change the World. Meltzer told Hollywood Reporter:
We’re a country starving for heroes. And whether we like it or not, our kids will choose heroes. For my own kids, this was my chance to have a say in it.
Amelia Earhart is the first personality he explores in the aptly titled I Am Amelia Earhart, which will likely have a 2014 release.
