What's in a Name?

Have you ever wondered how to pronounce your favorite author's name?

Let's try Rick Riordan (author of the fantastic and wildly popular Percy Jackson Books):

I've heard it pronounced "rear-don", "ree-ordon", "roar-don" and several others.

Well now you don't have to wonder, just cruise around this cool web site of hundreds of authors pronouncing their own names!

(and in case you were wondering about Riordon, it's pronounced "RYE-ordon", but don't trust me, check it out for yourself!)
