Meet the Author

Rick Riordan

Rick Riordan (www.rickriordan.com) is the author of the # 1 New York Times best-selling Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, as well as the #1 best-selling The Heroes of Olympus series, and The Kane Chronicles series. His previous novels for adults include the hugely popular Tres Navarre series, winner of the top three awards in the mystery genre. He lives in Boston, Massachusetts with his wife and two sons.

Biography

Percy Jackson and the Olympians is a terrific YA series by former middle school teacher and mystery writer Rick Riordan that revamps Greek mythology in a fun, fresh way kids find enthralling. A trouble-prone teen with attention deficit disorder and dyslexia, Percy is the half-blood son of Poseidon, one of 12 Olympian gods making mischief right here in 21st-century America. Praised by critics, librarians, and teachers, the Percy Jackson books have been honored with numerous awards and appear consistently on The New York Times bestseller list.

The series grew out of a sequence of bedtime stories Riordan invented for his son Haley -- who, at eight, had just been diagnosed with learning disabilities. Although Haley was having trouble in school, he loved the Greek myths and asked his dad to tell him some stories about the gods and heroes. Riordan ran through the standards from mythology, then began to invent new tales featuring some of the same characters and introducing a brave boy hero enough like Haley to make things interesting!

Haley begged his father to write the stories down, and in 2005, The Lightning Thief was published to excellent reviews. It was an instant hit with preteens, who loved the concept of a kid much like themselves -- i.e., embroiled in the everyday problems of school, family, and relationships -- embarking on heroic quests, soothing vengeful gods, and battling monsters.

In addition to Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Riordan also writes books for adults, most notably a series of high-octane Tex-Mex thrillers featuring private investigator Jackson "Tres" Navarre, a complicated loner with an offbeat pedigree. (Tres -- pronounced "Trace" -- is a tai chi master with a Ph.D. in medieval literature who turns to detective work when he is unable to find a teaching job!) The first novel in the series, 1997's Big Red Tequila, scooped the Anthony and Shamus Awards, two of the three most prestigious prizes for Mystery & Crime fiction. Riordan completed the trifecta when his sequel, The Widower's Two-Step, won the coveted Edgar Award in 1999.

Between the two series, Riordan remains incredibly busy. For several years, he balanced writing with teaching English to middle school students. Reluctantly, he has left teaching (a career he thoroughly enjoyed) in order to write full-time, but he still harbors hopes that someday he'll return to the classroom. Meanwhile, he makes frequent visits to schools and enjoys meeting young readers on his book tours.

    Love it!!!

    I loved the Percy Jackson series!! I saw the movie first and couldn't get into the books at first but once I got through the first one I was hooked! It's very exciting and compels you to keep reading. When I finished the last one I was so sad (but I hat ending any series.)

    Very entertaining!

    The book series starts out with Percy Jackson, a young man who lives with his mother and abusive stepfather (he has never known his father). While on a field trip, he is attacked by his teacher turned monsteresque creature. He defeats her, but soon finds himself being attacked by all types of 'mythological' creatures. In a desperate attempt to save him, his mother and best friend bring him to a camp called, Camp Half-Blood, where Percy learns that he is the son of the Greek god Poseidon. This series details the adventures of Percy, his friends, and his enemies, as they struggle with being a demi-god (half god, half human) in a world where monsters are all too real.
    This is a very entertaining series. It teaches the reader about Greek Mythology, but brings the characters into a modern perspective. The one complaint I have is that the Greek gods and goddesses tend to ignore their demi-god children except when it is convenient for them. The gods and goddesses brush it off by saying that they have "duties" but never explain what those are. They have been around for ages; they know what makes babies and yet they still have children with no intention of taking care of them. They use the same excuses all deadbeat parents use. I would like for them to step up and change a bit or for them to at least acknowledge that they are being irresponsible. After all, they're deities! Would it be too much to ask that they pay child support?

    Currently I am almost 17. I have read the first novel at least two times. When I fist started to read the series, I couldn't get into it. I believed that
    I was a horrible reader. My mother read them to me with my little sister who was about nine at the time. That means I was 13. I repeat I hated school, and was a horrible student, I started to believe that I couldn't read at all. After my mom read the series out loud to me and my sister, I couldn't help my self but read it again. Since then I have picked up multiple novels and teenage books. Surprisingly I now even enjoy the novels they make us read for school!
    I love Greek Mythology now. I even have my best friend who wouldn't dare under normal circumstances to pick them up. She couldn't stop reading it. I recommend this book to anyone. By the way, I was tested for dyslexia when I was in fourth grade, it turned out I was negative, but it also turned out that I had ADHD. Who knows maybe I am a demigod. (Just kidding). My mom thinks I think that. (Not kidding).

    Great Read!

    I bought this book series for my 10 year old son. He absolutely loved the movie and decided to read the series. Its a wonderful way to get your kiddos to read and learn to love to read. I might even read it myself. He is absolutely excited about reading just to see what happens. I recommend it to anyone who is struggling with reading.

    Great gift choice

    My 10-year-old cousin screamed with joy when he opened his Christmas gift! He just loves this series - had already read one but was eager to read the others. I am happy with the Barnes and Noble age-appropriate recommendations. Thank you.

    Anyone who hasn't read this series missed out on a lot!

    All five books are really great! After my child started reading books from Rick Riordan, she developed an interest in mythology. The first time she read is books, she was in third grade. Now, three years later, she's waiting for The House of Hades to come out. The set is only the start of an endless story. Also, culture and mythology is put in the series, so kids learn too! Really get these if you haven't, and they'll be great for your kids!

    Awesome Series!

    I read this series because some of my students were and I loved every page of it! A must-read for Harry Potter fans. I bought the boxed set for my classroom and haven't seen them since because the kids are passing them around like hot potatoes. This is a fantastic series for kids and adults.

    Some of the best fiction fantasy books I've read since Harry Pot

    Some of the best fiction fantasy books I've read since Harry Potter. Just about equal to Narnia, not as good as Harry. Great reads though. Any pre-teen and teenager should love this story, or they simply don't love imagination. This series is better than the Heroes of Olympus series, but that oen is pretty good too.
