'''Rick Riordan''' is an American author. He is best known for his series of children's books, ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'', ''Literature/TheKaneChronicles'', and ''Literature/TheHeroesOfOlympus'', which have granted him the epithet "Myth Master".

!!Tropes common in his works:
* AlliterativeName
* AllMythsAreTrue: In the case of his books, Greek, Roman, Egyptian and soon Norse mythology co-exist in the same universe. There is also a mention of Moses, though his characters remain officially agnostic on the existence of a "Capital-G God.
* {{Cliffhanger}}: Uses one for every book.
* FanNickname: Uncle Rick.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters
* RecycledInSpace: Though he's pretty clever at it, making the blend of ancient mythology and the modern world complex and entertaining.
* ShownTheirWork: Riordan certainly does his research, though he sometimes juggles things around for ArtisticLicense, and the fact that many of the myths have different variations and are often open to interpretations.
* {{Troll}}: The fandom is fond of calling him one, due to his penchant for cliffhangers. He takes it well, though.
