Rick Riordan is a teacher and a writer, and has won many awards for his mystery novels for adults. Riordan has created many successful book series. He says that the idea for Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief first came to him while he was teaching Greek mythology at middle school in San Francisco. The multi-award-winning Tres Navarre mystery series for adults follows the fast-paced adventures of an erudite Texan private eye. Riordan also helped create the children's book series The 39 Clues; he authored several of its books, including The Maze of Bones, which topped the New York Times Best Seller list on September 28, 2008. His Percy Jackson and the Olympians series features a twelve-year-old who discovers he is the modern-day son of an ancient Greek god. Following the success of Percy Jackson, Rick Riordan created The Kane Chronicles, which features a modern-day Egyptian pantheon and two new sibling protagonists. Riordan also created a sequel series to the Percy Jackson books, The Heroes of Olympus. He expanded both series simultaneously. He has completed The Kane Chronicles, a trilogy, and continues to write The Heroes of Olympus, which will have five books. Riordan plans to publish another series based on Norse mythology in 2015.
