Peter Lerangis



Joe Mabel

Peter Lerangis is the author of more than 170 books, which have sold more than six million copies and been translated into 34 different languages. His nine New York Times best-sellers include all five books in the Seven Wonders series, "The Colossus Rises," "Lost in Babylon," "Tomb of Shadows," "The Curse of the King," "The Legend of the Rift" and three books in the 39 Clues series. Peter is a Harvard graduate with a degree in biochemistry. He has run a marathon and gone rock climbing during an earthquake--though not on the same day. He lives in New York City with his wife, musician Tina deVaron and their two sons, Nick and Joe. In his spare time, he likes to eat chocolate. His new book is "80 Days or Die," the second in the Max Tilt series, a rollicking twenty-first-century spin on the novels of Jules Verne.
