Cass asked Rick Riordan:

Is it possible for your readers to see more LGBT+ characters in your future books? Also, I'd just like to thank you for bringing diversity and representation of the LGBT+ community into your books. It really means a lot to both myself and others. :) x

Rick Riordan I don't really plan it in advance most of the time, like which characters will be what, but I try to keep in mind that there are all kinds of young people and they deserve to see themselves in stories. The characters usually inform me who they are once I start writing about them.
