He is known for writing the ''Percy Jackson & the Olympians'' series, about a twelve-year-old Percy Jackson who discovers he is a son of Greek God Poseidon. His books have been translated into 42 languages and sold more than 30 million copies in the US. 20th Century Fox has adapted the first two books of his Percy Jackson series as part of a series of films. His books have spawned related media, such as graphic novels and short story collections.

Riordan's first full-length novel was ''Big Red Tequila'', which became the first book in the Tres Navarre series. His big breakthrough was ''The Lightning Thief'' (2005), the first novel in the five-volume Percy Jackson series, which placed a group of adolescents in a Greco-Roman mythological setting. Since then, Riordan has written ''The Kane Chronicles'' trilogy and ''The Heroes of Olympus'' series. ''The Kane Chronicles'' (2010-2012) focused on Egyptian mythology; ''The Heroes of Olympus'' was the sequel to the Percy Jackson series. Riordan also helped Scholastic Press develop ''The 39 Clues'' series and its spinoffs, and penned its first book, ''The Maze of Bones'' (2008). His most recent publications are three books in the ''Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard'' series, based on Norse mythology. The first book of his ''The Trials of Apollo'' series based on Greek mythology, ''The Hidden Oracle'', was released in May 2016. Provided by Wikipedia
