Rick Riordan wrote the series because he was telling Greek myth stories to his son and he ran out of them. His son asked him to make some up so that is how Percy Jackson was born.
I would recommend this series to people around 10+. However, since there aren't any 'inappropriate' scenes or anything, I suppose that anybody could read it at any time.
Rick Riordan the author of Percy Jackson and the Olympians, The Kane Chronicles, The Heroes of Olympus, and the Tres Navarre.
Here's a longish summary of Rick I did as a assignment. Rick Riordan is a writer born in San Antonio, Texas on June 5,1964. At school, he never liked reading.

Rick has not seen the movie yet as of 2/17/10.

The auditions would not have been set yet, since they don't know when they'd film the movie. Besides, there is probably only going to be three movies (according to directors), which will be all five books blended into three movies.
Because it was his talent, and he had tons of help, and that was what he wanted to be. But the beginning of PJO ( Percy Jackson and the Olympians) was when his son, Haley, wanted a bedtime story filled with Greek myths, so Rick quickly made up a story about a demigod named Percy Jackson. Then once...

swimming, playing guitar, writing, reading, spending time with his kids, and playing Wii.
He lives in San Antonio with his wife and two sons.
my fav. of his quotes is the one were he says "being different isn't necessarily bad. I could mean you're very, very talented" or something close to that.
The Kane Chronicles, the first book is The Red Pyramid, and the second is The Death By The Broken Statue.
Yes: Wife: Becky Riordan Daughter: Haley RiordanSon: Patrick Riordan
Probably,he wouldn't go the trouble making another oracle and a prophecy to let it go down as a mystery....The next book won't be about Percy or Annabeth different half-bloods.

yes and it is rick Riordan on the seach people bar or look up his Percy fan club
yes he had a lot of friends at school
There is no mature content whatsoever in The Lightning Thief, and it doesn't necessarily have a set age. I would recommend for a child of around 9 or 10 to read it, as Percy in the first book is only in grade 6.
apparently he said he would be a full-time writer, so no
Rick Riordan named his fifth book The Last Olympian because thethere was only one Olympian left on Olympus after the rest of thegods left to go fight. The last Olympian on Olympus was Lady Hestiaor to the Romans Lady Vesta.
Yes he will. He said he will make one on 2015 on his site. He can't release any information on it because he doesn't even know what he is going to write about yet.
