ABOUT RICK RIORDAN

Rick Riordan (pronounced rye-or-dan) is the author of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and The Heroes of Olympus series. He lives in San Antonio, Texas in the United States of America with his wife and two sons, Haley and Patrick.

Mr. Riordan is an accomplished author, having written the Tres Navarre series of adult mystery novels; The 39 Clues: The Maze of Bones and the rest of the series' main story arc; The Kane Chronicles based on ancient Egyptian mythology; the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series based on ancient Greek mythology; and The Heroes of Olympus, the sequel series following on from Percy Jackson which introduces Roman mythology.

 

Percy Jackson and the Olympians

We have Mr. Riordan's eldest son, Haley, to thank for Percy Jackson and the Olympians. While studying Greek mythology in second grade, Haley asked his dad to tell him some him some bedtime stories about the Greek gods and heroes. When there were no new myths to tell, Haley asked his dad to make up a new story using some of the ancient heroes and monsters. When the new story was finished Haley told his dad that he should write it down. Thus Percy Jackson and the Olympians was born!

 

The Heroes of Olympus

Rick Riordan's inspiration for The Heroes of Olympus series came from young readers who had been asking him whether he would include the gods from Roman mythology in the series. He started to think about how the Roman gods varied from the Greek gods and what it would be like if the Roman incarnations of the gods was still around and what would happen. This have him the idea for the new series.
