How it Started
When his son Haley was young he had ADHD and Dyslexia which made it hard to concentrate and read. So every night Rick told him Ancient Greek myths. When he ran out of myths, Haley told him to make something up. It took him 3 nights to tell him the story about "Percy Jackson and the Lightning Theif." Like Haley, Percy Jackson had ADHD and Dyslexia which made it easier for Haley to relate to it. Haley told Rick to publish the story, so Rick wrote 3 copies and told 3 of his students to read it and rate it. All of his students gave it an A+. After that he publishd it and it was a New York Times best-seller!
He wrote 9 Percy Jackson books so far. 2 of his books were made into movies. He went to NTS to become a guitar player. He won 20 book awards. He is a New York Times best-selling author He also wrote about Roman and Egyptian mythology. His newest series is going to be about Norse mythology.
