Correct response: Who is Rick Riordan?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
Rick Riordan—who taught at a middle school in San Francisco for eight years before becoming a bestselling author—is best known for his Percy Jackson & the Olympians series of books, about a 12-year-old Percy Jackson who discovers that Greek god Poseidon is his father. In the mid-2000s, he had been mulling over the next entry in his Tres Navarre series when his son Haley urged him to write about the stories Rick had been telling him about Greek mythology, with the ADHD-suffering Jackson front and center (Haley also suffers from ADHD). Thus, the Percy Jackson & the Olympians series was born.
