Brad Meltzer is a two-time no. 1 New York Times-bestselling thriller author (and good friends with our friend Harlan Coben!)—but something compelled him to start his children's book series, Ordinary People Change The World. (Guess what—Rachael is featured in his latest book, I Am Oprah Winfrey!)
"I was tired of my kids looking up to people who are famous for being famous and thinking that's a hero," Brad tells Rach. "I could do so much better for them. I want to give them heroes of kindness and compassion and character. We've lost character today."
