All of you were right to some extent, some more than others.

 

(1)

His (Dan Brown) earlier book, Angels and Demons, is dedicated simply 'For Blythe', The Da Vinci Code's tribute reads: 'For Blythe ... again. More than ever.'  (From Yahoo)

Blythe is the wife of Dan Brown.  He dedicated Angels and Demons to her, and he dedicated The Da Vinci Code to her with even more enthusiasm.

 

(2)

As for "It ain't nothing until I call it", the quote is attributed to Bill Klem, a baseball umpire. 

 

To call it = What a baseball umpire does when he makes a judgement about the action of a baseball player.  Was it a strike?  Was it a ball?  Was he safe or out?  It's not anything until the umpire (Bill Klem) decides what it is and voices his opinion.

 

It would be so nice if people asking questions would give us the context.  I got the above information off the Internet, of course.  Do a search and check it out for yourself.
