Riley makes his home in Las Vegas yet is originally from Michigan, where he molded his speech and writing voice to reflect a keen midwestern cadence.
His versatile educational background of fine arts and business is complemented by his many other accomplishments that enhance his ability to create exciting and credible fiction, as well as compelling non-fiction work. (He earned a national award for his actual account of how the United States actually conflicted with Vietnam long before 1965. Southeast Asia, Skewered warfare.)
Riley's published novels harmoniously reflect his innate sense-of-story that engages all types of fiction, including supernatural chillers.
Riley is also a public speaker who leads or participates in private and public writing curriculums as well as library associations and various forums revolving around literary arts. (Read about his inspiring Alaskan Speaking Journey.)
His background also includes earning a private pilot's license, dabbling in amateur photography and even enjoyed minor acting roles within his former Southern California community.
