Riley's mom, Wendy, thankfully gave us a little background about her successful (and I might add humble) author-daughter below...enjoy!
Riley Carney is sixteen years old and she is homeschooled. She has already written all five books of The Reign of the Elements series. Young readers instinctively recognize that the story is rooted in genuine adolescent thought and emotion. Riley has also completed the first book of an urban fantasy trilogy for older teens.
Riley is passionate about literacy for children, because she believes that the way to help children break the cycle of poverty and exploitation is through literacy. She created her non-profit when she was fourteen and she has built two schools and water purification systems in Africa, created a children's literacy center in a women's shelter in Colorado and bought over a thousand new books for programs in low-income neighborhoods in the U.S.
