Hi Yadiel, oh yeah, I had some of it on the drive home and it was great! I’m trying to save some for Thanksgiving, but I don’t know if that will work. :/

i know that you made the book throw back I wonder if you will make a big series of it?
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Yes, there will be three books in the series. I just finished writing Book 2, which is coming out May 5, and I’m starting work on Book 3!

I know that you grew up in Freeport I wonder what is your favorite part of Freeport
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Oh, that's a good question! I like Milburn Pond, because I grew up near there. I also like that Freeport is so near the beach. And, of course, THE LIBRARY!! 🙂

I know that you have alot of books but I wonder what book you like the most out of all your books?
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Throwback, definitely! (Also, Throwback #2: The Chaos Loop, but that doesn’t come out until May!)

I know that your nationality is Greek but I wonder if you will make a book based on Greek?
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Well, I don’t know Greek well enough to write IN Greek 🙂 , but some of my books take place in Greece, like The Colossus Rises and The Curse of the King. Also, quite a few of my books have been translated into Greek!

Dear Mr. Lerangis,
I am a fan of your 7 Wonders and Max Tilt Series and also a big PJO (Percy Jackson and The Olympians) fan. I had a suggestion for your books that Mr. Riordan also did; What if you write a crossover series with Max Tilt and Seven Wonders?? I'm sure the characters from both series would wreck havoc or save the world a few times together!!
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hi, Jessica! Yeah, I think that’s a GREAT idea! Now it’s only a matter of convincing my publisher ... 🙂

Dear Mr.Lerangis, I am doing a book report and was wondering if you could answer a few questions about Seven Wonders

1: If you could, would you make this into a film

2: Besides Jack, who do you think is the most in depth character

3: If you could, would you change anything about these books

Thats all thank you for your time.
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Oh, hi again, Logan! Yes, I would LOVE it if the Seven Wonders series would be made into a movie. I think the most in-depth character after Jack might be Cass, but Aly and Marco are both close! I don’t think I’d change anything about these books, except maybe do more of them!

Dear Mr. Lerangis,
Will you be in Canada anytime soon? Me and my friend, Sebastian love your 7 Wonders and Max Tilt series but live in Toronto, Ontario where the closest sighning is in NYC!!!

Hi Jessica! Well, it’s been WAY too long since my last visit to Canada, but as of now there are no book tour plans. I’d be happy to visit any school up there, though, if a teacher or librarian would contact me through my author visits page!
Logan Wagner wrote on November 2, 2019 at 8:16 AM
Hi Mr. Lerangis I was wondering if you would be okay with a video interview about your first Seven Wonders book for my book report. If you are interested please contact me at the email listed above.
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hi, Logan! Sorry it took awhile to get back to you, but I’ve been traveling quite a bit lately. Has the time passed for your project? If not, please contact me again through my contact page and we can set something up for early December, OK?

I read this series to my children when it was first published and we loved it! I just finished reading it to the students in my class and they loved it too! One student even wanted to skip lunch to finish reading the book! We are all wondering why you didn't continue the story. We want to find out what happened in Manhattan with Evie and Andrew or Jen and Obi!
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hi, Joelle! Thanks for your kind words. Oh, do I also wish there were another book in the Spy X series. The publisher did ask me to write a book 5 and book 6, and I was all set to start, and then they unexpectedly decided not to go forward. I never quite understood why, but there you have it: you now know as much about it as I do! 🙂 I wish that hadn’t happened, but I am so glad you enjoyed the series!
Lauren Compton wrote on October 17, 2019 at 4:24 PM
why did the 7 wonders series have to end?
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hi, Lauren! I know, right? I miss it too! Thank you. I had some other stories I really wanted to tell, so I went on to write the Max Tilt and Throwback series. I recommend those too (even though Throwback has only one book so far!).

how exactly do you come up with your ideas? I know i'm full of questions but I need to know.
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
I like to keep my eyes and ears open all the time for stories. Sometimes stories just come to me, like the time in the subway train I told you about. My mind collects conversations, interesting incidents, news events, odd things I see on the street, books I read, and just plain old daydreaming. I collect ideas, write them on scraps of paper, and tack them up to a corkboard. Then I take them down and read them days later. I throw away the ones that are the least interesting and try to develop the best ones. Sometimes I’ll remember something I forgot to write down. Usually a combination of these things will mash up together and surprise me as a good idea for a story. A couple of examples: One time I saw a hawk trying to fly away with an empty plastic Coke bottle in Central Park, and that became a short story about vampires in Central Park! Throwback is also a great example. It came from my experience on 9/11 finding my son, and I combined it with an idea that came to me while I was walking on a strange, cockeyed street in Greenwich Village. The two things came together in a time-travel story. Hope that helps!

Do you wright your books in quiet areas?
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hi, Jack! Great question. Yes, I need absolute quiet. I am way too easily distracted, so if music is playing I just want to listen to it. I know other writers who are the opposite. They say they HAVE to listen to music. I have tried, but there’s no way I can do that!

Thank you, Elaina! Unfortunately I’m writing this on a plane heading back to New York City, but I hope I’ll return to Wichita someday soon. It was my very first visit and I had a great time!

Dear Mr. Lerangis,
We are so thankful for your visit today! We really enjoyed your presentation. You were so funny and entertaining. We can't wait to read your new book, Throwback. Thanks again!
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hi, Ms. Wise! Many thanks for your kind words, and for the warm reception from the amazing kids at Ferson Creek. I hope you all enjoy being among the very first readers of Throwback!

Thank you Mr. Lerangis for your captivating presentation at East Middle School in Traverse City, MI. You are certainly adept at keeping the audience's attention, but it was your message that won the staff over! Including the image of your marked up manuscript while discussing the notion that "no one is qualified to judge his/her own work" was a very powerful moment. Thank you for addressing your failures just as much as your successes and for emphasizing the fact that the two go hand in hand. Bravo! Wishing you continued success!

Thank you so very much for those kind words, Melissa! It was a great pleasure to begin the week with such a warm reception from you and your AWESOME kids. Hope to see you all again sometime. I ♥ Traverse City and EMS!

Dear Mr.Lerangis,
I was at your talk with cudahy middle school and I have 2 questions:
1. Is your new book coming to the CMS library?
2. What was the website for me to get a signed copy of your new book?

Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hi, Meaghanne! I had a great time visiting Cudahy. You all were so kind to sing to Bobby. My whole family was grateful. I’m pretty sure I left some signed books for your library, so check with Ms. Schwabe. The place to get signed books is Boswell Books. Their store is in Milwaukee. If you pay them a visit, you can be sure to get a signed book from the shelves. You could also call them to order it, at (414) 332-1181, or order from their website. Here’s the page for Throwback. If you order on-line, you should make sure to tell them you want a signed copy. Their email address is

Hi Mr. Lerangis!!! Can you explain how each main character looks in the series the seven wonders? Thanks!
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hi, Rae! Wow, it’s been a few years since I wrote those books, so I may be remembering wrong, but here’s what I recall:Jack: reddish-brown hair, a little scrawny but tall for his age, open and friendly face. Aly: dark hair, likes to dye it neon colors, slightly under average height, intense dark eyes, really confident and intelligent lookMarco: dark hair, tall, broad-shouldered, dimples, handsome, stubborn, blue-green eyes. Cass: curly hair, skinny, wide-eyed and a little confused-looking, always a little smile on his face. Bhegad: older, dresses in tweed, rough skin, bulbous nose, balding, thick glasses. Torquin: enormous shoulders, nearly seven feet tall, curly and unruly red hair, super-thick red beard. Does that match your picture of them?
