Biographical Note 

Rick Riordan is the author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Percy Jackson and the Olympians series for children and the multi-award-winning Tres Navarre mystery series for adults.

Riordan was born in San Antonio, Texas, in 1964.  He graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with degrees in English and History, and in 1988, he received his teaching certification from The University of Texas at San Antonio. He began graduate studies in English and Medieval Studies at San Francisco State University and then pursued a career in education in Oakland, California, where he taught middle and high schools. He continued teaching English for fifteen years in both the San Francisco Bay Area and Texas. Riordan has since retired from teaching to focus his energy on writing full-time. 

Like many successful authors, before writing and publishing full-length novels Riordan honed his craft by writing short stories.  “The Sheet Cave” and “Out on 1040” were featured in Cactus Alley in 1988.  “A Small Silver Gun” was featured in Family Circle Mary Higgins Clark Mystery in the summer of 1998.  His short stories have also appeared in Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine. 

Riordan first gained widespread attention for his popular series of mysteries books featuring Tres Navarre, a San Antonio private detective, martial arts master, and English Ph.D. in Medieval literature. In 1997, Big Red Tequila, the first in the Navarre mystery series was published.  It won the Anthony Award for best original paperback and the Shamus award for the best, first private investigator novel.  He followed this early success with the second in his series, The Widower’s Two- Step in 1998.  This novel also won Anthony and Shamus awards, as well as the Edgar award for best original paperback.  The Last King of Texas (2000) was a featured alternate for the Mystery Guild, and The Devil Went Down to Austin (2001) was also critically acclaimed.  His newest mystery, and the fifth in the Tres Navarre series, is Southtown, which was published in 2004. Riordan also writes novels outside of the Tres Navarre series.  Cold Creek was published in 2003 and placed on the American Library Association’s top-ten suspense novels list. In 2003, he was inducted into the Texas Institute of Letters.

Riordan uses his native South and Central Texas as locations for many of his novel’s settings, and his admiration for this area is apparent. However, he had not always anticipated that he would write about the region. At The Scene of the Crime, a panel discussion held in the Southwestern Writers Collection in 2004, Riordan reflected that distancing himself from the area helped him to appreciate it:  “I didn’t have any desire to write about San Antonio at all until I moved to California…I had to move away, and I had to appreciate what I knew before I wanted to write about it.”

In 2005 Riordan began publishing his series of immensely popular and critically acclaimed Percy Jackson and the Olympians series for children. His Percy Jackson series features a twelve-year-old dyslexic boy who discovers he is the modern-day son of a Greek god. Four books have appeared in the series: The Lightning Thief, The Sea of Monsters, The Titan’s Curse, and The Battle of the Labyrinth. In 2008 he published his first book in a new series, The 39 Clues: The Maze of Bones.

Rick Riordan now writes full-time. He lives in San Antonio with his wife and two sons.

Rick Riordan donated this collection of papers to the Southwestern Writers Collection in February 2004. (note: Riordan donated additional archives in 2006 and 2007, please scroll down for details.)

 

Scope and Contents Note 

Correspondence, research notes and interviews, plot maps, chapter synopses, character outlines, editor’s revision suggestions, and two magazines document the career of Texas writer Rick Riordan spanning the years of 1997-2004.  The bulk of the collection consists of manuscript materials for five of his novels:  Big Red Tequila, Widower’s Two-Step, “Gunman’s Cantina” (The Last King of Texas), The Devil went down to Austin, and Cold Springs.  The collection is arranged chronologically into seven series based on dates of publication of each book, with the seventh series consisting of promotional materials.  Because of this, the author’s method of constructing and writing a novel from first notes to manuscript is demonstrated. 

The first series contains two magazines that featured Riordan’s short fiction, the first published in 1988 and a more recent piece published in 1998.  The second through sixth series are dedicated to each of Riordan’s novels.  Correspondence, research, and interviews particular to each novel are contained within that specific novel’s series.  Most of the research notes and interview materials are for the Widower’s Two-Step, The Last King of Texas, and The Devil Went Down to Austin.  The seventh series contains promotional materials for Riordan. 

In addition to showcasing the people and cultures of Texas through his writings, another important aspect of the Riordan Papers housed in the Southwestern Writers Collection is that it shows the depth of research spent writing his novel as well as the processes of writing from start to finish.
