A companion guide to THE TRIALS OF APOLLO series, set in the world of PERCY JACKSON.
Rick Riordan is a teacher and a writer, and has won many awards for
his mystery novels for adults. 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. But
rumour has it that Camp Half Blood actually exists, and Rick spends
his summers there recording the adventures of young demigods. Some
believe that, to avoid a mass panic among the mortal population, he
was forced to swear on the River Styx to present Percy Jackson's
story as fiction. Rick lives in Texas (apart from his summers on
Half Blood Hill) with his wife and two sons.
