Peter Lerangis is the author of more than 160 books, which have sold more than 5.5 million copies and been translated into 33 different languages, including the New York Times–bestselling" The Colossus Rises" and "Lost in Babylon", Books 1 and 2 of "The Seven Wonders" series; two books in the New York Times–bestselling series "The 39 Clues" (Book 3: "The Sword Thief" and 7: "The Viper’s Nest") and co-authorship (along with Rick Riordan, Gordon Korman, and Jude Watson) of Book 11: "Vespers Rising"; and Book 3: "The Dead of Night" in "The 39 Clues: Cahills Vs. Vespers" series.

His novel "Somebody, Please Tell Me Who I Am," a collaboration with Harry Mazer, won the 2013 Schneider Award, presented by the American Library Association “for a book that embodies an artistic expression of the disability experience for adolescent audiences,” and it was selected for the 2013 Best Fiction for Young Adults list. The Sword Thief was Amazon.com’s No. 5 best-selling children’s book in 2009. In a five-city U.S. book tour in spring 2009, Peter videoblogged his own search for one of the Clues. He is also author of the hilarious, edgy YA novel wtf, and the Drama Club series, about a group of high school theater kids in a town where theater is big-budget and life-changing.

His novel "Smiler’s Bones," based on the true story of a Polar Eskimo boy orphaned in New York City at the turn of the 20th century, was selected as a N.Y. Public Library Best Books for Teens 2006, a Bank Street Best Books of 2006, and a Junior Library Guild pick.

Peter was one of three authors, along with R. L. Stine and Marc Brown, invited by the White House to represent the U. S. in the first Russian Book Festival in 2003. Among his most popular titles are the "Spy X" and "Watchers" series, the two-book Antarctica adventure, a series of humorous chapter books ("Abracadabra"), two young-adult thrillers ("The Yearbook" and "Driver’s Dead"), four middle-grade novels ("Spring Fever," "Spring Break," "It Came from the Cafeteria" and "Attack of the Killer Potatoes," and many movie novelizations ("The Sixth Sense," "Sleepy Hollow").

He is a Harvard graduate with a degree in biochemistry. After college he became a Broadway musical theater actor. He has run a marathon and gone rock-climbing during an earthquake, but not on the same day. He lives in New York City with his wife, musician Tina deVaron, and their two sons, Nick and Joe. Peter has conducted workshops for the National Book Foundation, the Highlights Foundation, and the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, and once, for the international writers’ organization, PEN, he participated in a panel along with a Sandinista rebel and a Newbery winner. Over the years he has visited schools all over the world and become known for his humorous, informative presentations. In his spare time, he likes to eat chocolate. Lots of it. Seriously, he loves chocolate.
