Rick Riordan
Rick Riordan
Rick Riordan is best known for his bestselling YA series Percy Jackson and the Olympians and for a series of award-winning adult mysteries featuring San Antonio P.I. Tres Navarre.

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.

    Can't Wait!!!!!

    I absolutely can not wait for this book to come out. The Lost Hero was phenomenal as was Rick's other series'. I expect this book will live up to the expectations if not going higher.

    This book is amazing!!!!!

    Riordan has brought percy jackson back so successfully. The prophesy is just bone chilling ( in fact, ive memorized it) frank and hazel are great characters and reyna, octavion, ella, and phineas make for a halarious and witty book. Cant wait for the mark of athena and the final book in the kane chronicles ( which you should also read ). This book is a for sure read and is suspensefull epic witty funny smart sappy ( as in romantic) and just plain exciting. If you decide to read this book you should definitely read the percy jackson books and the lost hero. If youve alreafy read this, id suggest the Kane Chronicles, Fablehaven, and Leven Thumps.

    Great book

    I had just started reading the Percy Jackson series this summer because my nephew wanted to read a series with me. I was hooked from the beginning always been interested in Greek and Roman mythology. I love the fact that he stayed true to Roman way of life and then also with Greek way of life. How he showed the difference between the two camps with Greek demigods stay in there house according the god parent and how Romans stayed in barracks of coherts of who would claim them. How the Romans fought the way the Romans fought in formations. Overall the book was great minus the eReaders grammatical errors.

    wizards, demigods, gods, titans, and elder gods.

    Harry is Harry. Percy is Percy. Both are awesome in their on right. You can't compare a wizard to demigod though because a wizard, no matter how powerful he/she, is just outclassed by a demigod, a god, a titan, and an elder god. That's just me...
