Back to Meet the Authors

John Rocco has held a wide variety of jobs in his life, from working in the shell fishing industry, to designing attractions for Walt Disney World's Epcot, to creating illustrations for the DreamWorks movie "Shrek." Since 2005 his focus has been on creating children's books, such as "Blackout, Wolf! Wolf!" (a Borders Original Voices Award winner), "Moonpowder" and "Fu Finds the Way." He has also created the cover artwork for Rick Riordan's best-selling "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" and "Kane Chronicles" series.
