Rick Riordon

He was born June 5, 1964 in San Antonio, TX. When I was in college, he worked for three years as the music director at a summer camp, Camp Capers. This is where he got the idea for Camp Half-Blood. His first full-time job was teaching middle school in New Braunfels, Texas. After that, his wife and him moved to San Francisco. They lived there for eight years and he taught at Presidio Hill School. Then they had their two sons, Haley and Patrick, and we moved back home to San Antonio. He taught at Saint Mary’s Hall (English and social studies, grades 6-8) for six years, then stopped teaching to become a full-time writer. He taught mythology almost every year that he was a teacher.

Sea of Monsters Report: by Emily Cox

Percy Jackson’s seventh-grade year has been oddly quiet. Not a single monster has set foot on his New York prep-school campus. But when an innocent game of dodge ball among Percy and his classmates turns into a death match against an ugly gang of cannibal giants, things get … well, ugly. And the unexpected arrival of Percy’s friend Annabeth brings bad news! The magical borders that protect Camp Half-Blood, have been poisoned by a mysterious enemy, and unless a cure is found, the only safe haven for demigods will be destroyed. This is an amazing book!
