He has also penned three titles in the NY Times bestselling series of children’s books, The 39 Clues. This series is actually long-running series and several authors have contributed their works in it.

Author Lerangies was born as Peter Duncan Lerangis on January 01, 1955 in Brooklyn, New York, United States. His father was an employee in the NYTC, while his mother used to work as a secretary in a public elementary school. Lerangis’ parents did his upbringing in Freeport in New York’s Long Island. He went on to complete his graduation from the Harvard University and obtained a degree in the subject of biochemistry. Prior to starting his career in the writing field, author Lerangis was involved in a number of artistic activities like acting and singing in musicals, directing music, etc. When it seemed to be working out as per his expectation, Lerangis shifted to New York and began working as an actor. It is said that Bill Gates was author Lerangis’ classmate in the university, before he chose to drop out and create Microsoft.

After the acting gig, Lerangis took up the work of freelance copy editing and was involved in this profession for around 8 years. Finally, he gave a try at writing and publishing a full length novel. And when he found success at the initial stage, Lerangis decided to make it a full time career. Seven Wonders book series proved to be a turning point in Lerangis’ career as it helped him to establish himself as a noteworthy author. This series is also very special for him because all 5 of its books made it to the NYTimes bestselling list. Apart from the various young adult and children’s novels Lerangis has written a few books based on the films. This includes Sleepy Hollow, Beauty & Beast, and The Sixth Sense. There are also a few novelizations of video games to Leragnis’ credit, including Seth Godin’s Worlds of Power. Author Lerangis has also taken up ghostwriting under the pseudonym of A.L Singer.

The year 2003 saw Lerangis getting chosen by the First Lady named Laura Bush for accompanying her to the debut Russian Book Festival, which was hosted in Moscow by First Lady of Russia, Lyudmila Putina. In the same year, Scholastic’s UK branch commissioned author Lerangis for writing X-Isle. This was one of the 4 books that relaunched the Point Horror novel series in the UK. In 2016, author Lerangis got the chance to visit Patan Dhoka in Nepal. He was invited as a guest speaker at the Bal-Sahitya Mahotsava, which Nepal’s book festival for children’s literature. As of today, author Lerangis resides in New York City along with his musician wife named Tina deVaron and 2 beautiful children named Joe and Nick. Lerangis’ books have been selected by the Library Association of America on multiple occasions. He has also been awarded the Schneider Family Award by the association for depicting the artistic expressions of disability experiences for adolescent and child audiences in one of his books.

The Spy X series written by author Peter Lerangis is comprised of a total of 4 books, which were released between the years 2004 and 2006. The debut book of this series is entitled ‘The Code’. It was released by the Scholastic Paperbacks in the year 2004. Author Lerangis has mentioned the main characters in this book in the form of Andrew, Evie, and Mrs. Digitalis. At the start of the book’s story, Evie and Andrew are introduced as twelve year old twins. The story shows how the twins navigate through the maze of espionage and intrigue and try to find out the truth behind the disappearance of their mother. Their mother vanishes suddenly on the occasion of their 11th birthday and leaves behind a cryptic note.

A year passes after the disappearance and Andrew & Evie get a package. As they try to figure out what is contained in the mysterious package, they come to know that it has been sent to them by someone called Spy X. Intrigued by the unfolding of events, the twins learn that they will be led on an adventurous journey by the package’s contents and will be getting closer to knowing the truth about their mother’s sudden disappearance. However, one thing that they don’t know that there will be a lot of surprises and mysteries ahead in their path and the journey is not going to be an easy one. And just as they begin the incredible journey, the twins realize that they cannot trust anyone’s identity and must rely only on each other for completing the task they have taken up.

Another exciting novel of this series is called ‘Tunnel Vision’. It was also published by Scholastic publishers in 2006. Once again, Lerangis has described Evie, Andrew, and their mother in the lead roles. At the beginning of the story of the book, it is depicted that the twins finally get to meet their mother and learn that she is actually a spy working for an agency run by the government. Also, they come to know that their mother is on the run and the agency is behind her to get her back to working for them. When the kids’ mother could not keep herself away from her children for long, she decided to come out from her hiding place and meet her kids. But, knowing that the agency named Company, for which she used to work as a spy, is looking for her, she cannot keep herself out in the open for long.

So, she thinks of going underground again. Also, knowing that kid will not be safe without her, she brings them underground with her too. As the children have become used to visiting new places, it doesn’t look like a big deal to them to have a change of identities. They think it is going to be a fun-filled experience. Later, it strikes the kids that they will not only be leaving behind a town, but also their personalities and themselves. And in all this mess, they forget that they have to think about their father too. This book provides another exciting journey, filled with mysteries and surprises. It was liked by many readers and critics from across the world, who praised it with great reviews comments.
