Well this is a bit general, and you've most likely been asked this hundreds of times. But what gave you the ideas for the Seven Wonders series? Even though it's a series meant for people generally a bit younger than me, the content is captivating. I'm 16 and looking to write an action-fantasy novel and I was curious in hearing how you were inspired.

Hi, Cam! Thanks for asking, and apologies for not getting back to you until now. The idea for the series came from three places. I became obsessed with the Seven Wonders years ago during a trip to Greece. I looked across the harbor in Rhodes and imagined the massive Colossus straddling the harbor. It seemed utterly impossible for such a thing to have existed. I was hooked. I began digging into the Wonders just as a hobby, hoping to write about them. But I couldn’t really think of a story that could span all the different locations and times in which they were built. Later in that trip, I visited the island of Crete and learned that people there believed Crete was the site of Atlantis. Well, I’d always wanted to write about Atlantis too — but I figured that topic has been done by so many people, it was fruitless to even try. Third, I’ve been wanting to write a series of “desert island” adventures, where kids are trapped by mysterious forces, but that sort of book has also been done to death — and besides, I couldn’t figure out why those kids would be trapped there anyway! So I parked all three ideas in the back of my mind. And they began to mingle. So even though I couldn’t make each come to life on its own, TOGETHER they grew into an idea I loved! And the rest is history.

Hi there,
Mr. Lerangis i was in in school suspension and stumbled across two of your books from the watchers series. I'm currently baffled as to what happened at the end of the first two.
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hi, Demetrius! Well, I’m the one who deserves a suspension for taking so long to write you back! OK, I don’t want to give away spoilers, for people who may be reading this and have not yet read the books, so I will send you a separate message to the gmail address you provided. [Added later: whoops, looks like that address didn’t work!]

Hi Peter! I'm in 4th grade and I just finished your first book in the series Watchers. I loved it a lot. I didn't read the second book yet. My teacher gave me and my class a writing assignment to write what we thought would happen next after the cliffhanger at the end of the first book. I would love to show you what I thought would happen next. I typed it on a document. How can I share it with you? Please let me know!
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hi, Abigail! Whoops, looks like waaaaay too much time went by between your message and my reply. By now, maybe you’ve read the next book or lost track of your prediction. But if you still have it and want to send it to me, feel free to send to info@peterlerangis.com. Thanks for writing, and I’m honored that you enjoyed Colossus Rises!

I just found your Seven Wonders series and I loved it! I'm hoping this message will inspire you to write either another book or an epilogue novella, because so much was left to wonder about the Rift's ending. Aly, Cass, Marco, and Jack obviously remember, but does anyone else, like Torquin? What happened to the queen? Is Cass living with his parents? His sister? Have the Atlantean legends survived? Please write more! if only to tie up all the loose ends Rift left dangling.

Hi, Annemarie! So sorry to have taken this long to respond (wow, am I behind!). I’m so glad to know how much you enjoyed the Seven Wonders series. Sad to say, I’ve moved on to other projects, but I do miss those characters, and if there’s a groundswell of support for the books, who knows? Maybe I’ll extend the story then....

Hello Peter, I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your seven wonders series and was wondering if you have plans to write another book. The last book felt like there was more to the ending then what was there
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hi, Erika! No, sorry to say that the Seven Wonders series has ended, and I’ve moved on to other projects. But who knows, if there’s enough demand, I may think of returning. I do really miss those characters!

Dear Peter

I absolutely adored your Seven Wonders series, and I am completely hooked on the first Max Tilt story ... but ... now the second Max Tilt has been out for a while, and yet not sign of an audiobook ... there will be an audiobook of it, will there not?? Pleeeeease!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

All the best,
Inge

Hi, Inge! Wow, someone just wrote about this same thing! So I’ll give you the same answer: HarperCollins did not contract for an audiobook for Max Tilt #2. Unfortunately I don’t have control over business decisions like that 🙁 , but I am hoping they’ll change their minds, because I loved the Book 1 version. Certainly it will mean something to them when they see these messages, so thanks!

Dear Peter Lerangis,

Your book, The Vipers Nest, had an impact on me because all of the action made me want to read more! For example, when there was the big storm, I kept reading to see what would happen next. Also, when Amy and Dan were running from the Indonesian police, I was thinking they were going to go to prison for the rest of their lives. That part of the book was super scary! Another scary part of the book was when Dan was trying to save Saladin. They were both in the water, but when they got to shore I was relieved. Finally, I was confused when Dan and Amy saw the weird passport. I didn’t understand what it was at first, but then I figured out that it was the murderer’s passport. Right as I started this book, I new I was going to love it because I love action packed books, and the action kept on going. This was an amazing book to read and the best part was that it made me want to read more. I look forward to reading more of your books.

Sincerely,
Jack Dittenber

My 9 year old son just discovered your Max Tilt series. He loved the first book, and is excited about reading book 2.
When do you think the audio book will be coming out?
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hello, April. Thank you so much for the kind words, and a high-five to your son from me! HarperCollins did not contract for an audiobook for Max Tilt #2.

I was wondering if you would like a manga adaptation to your Sven Wonders series. The reason I am asking is because it is a great series, and I think it would be a good idea for it to be visualised. Of course,if you don't want it to be visualised, I understand. The reason I am asking if you want it visualised is because some people may like the series, but like it visualised for the reader who may not have the time to read the whole series. Another reason I am offering/ asking to do this is because of the growing amount of comic readers, and I think it might be good to expand on people knowing your great series.


If you wish for me to show you art or how I draw things or even if you want me to draw something from the series, I'd be happy to do so.

Thank you very much,

Hi, Gabriella! That’s a great idea. I would love a manga adaptation. I will have to pass that idea by my editor!

Do you plan on making a new series after Max Tilt?
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hi, Matias! Yes, I’m working on a new trilogy now. Can’t say much about it yet, but it involves time travel, and the series title will be Throwback. I think Book 1 is going to be published in September 2019. Thanks for asking and have an awesome school year!

Mr Lerangis,

It has been a long time since I read the 39 clues, seemingly in my infancy. Collecting card codes and serum ingredients were some of my best memories when I was young. I wanted to thank you for such wonderful work. It gave me the travel bug and a desire to learn more about the world. As I start my journey to Social Studies teacher certification, I have to thank your series for putting me on this path - I do not think it would have turned out this way if not for The 39 Clues. Thank you so much for making my childhood - and adulthood so far - what it is!

Remember your double-dealing diamond tour? These videos also contributed to my desire to travel.

Lucian, Tomas, Janus, Ekaterina, Madrigal - we are all Cahills.
Admin Reply by: peterlerangis
Hi, Debbie! Oh, this is such wonderful message, particularly on the same week the 39 Clues team had a 10-year reunion. How did you sense this?? 🙂 We all remember our own childhood influences, and it’s incredibly moving to know that in our own way, we were able to pass that forward. It means a great deal to know that the series inspired you, and thank you so much for sharing that. Best of luck to you from me and the entire world of EKTOMALUJA! I know you too will inspire students with your own passions and skills, and warmest wishes to you in your teaching career!

Yiasou, Georgos! Sorry it’s taken me so long to get back to you. Good luck on your project. I haven’t done any ghostwriting in many years, and my plate’s kind of full for a few months out. Launching in mid-September???  Wow, I hope the launch is going well and that you find someone spectacular.Panayioti
