16 YEAR OLD RILEY CARNEY…THE TAYLOR SWIFT OF LITERACY….IS A PUBLISHED AUTHOR WITH A PASSION FOR ELIMINATING ILLITERACY WORLDWIDE…AND, SHE IS SUCCEEDING
Riley Carney is 16 years old and has, already in her young life, written a five-book series, The Reign of the Elements. She began and completed the first three books in the series when she was 15, and finished the last two books during this her 16th year. And, she has just completed the first book of an urban fantasy trilogy for teens.
On her website, Riley says of herself: “I write for teenagers from a unique perspective – I am a teenager! I try to make my stories exciting, filled with action and humor, and my characters relatable.”
The Fire Stone: Book One of The Reign of the Elements has been published and is available on Amazon.com. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Riley’s books go to her passion of giving the gift of literacy to children worldwide.
Not only is Riley a published author, but she is also very involved with eliminating illiteracy and poverty for children around the world. She believes that teaching children to read breaks the cycle of poverty and exploitation of children.
At the age of 14, Riley created her own non-profit organization called Breaking the Chain with the goal of eliminating illiteracy in children. So far, she has raised enough money to build two schools in Africa and create a children’s literacy center in a woman’s shelter in Colorado. This year, her older brother, Nick, joins Breaking the Chain and they will be working together on literacy and sustainable development around the world.
Congratulations Riley on your successes and for accomplishing so much to change the lives of others for the good in such a short time!
And, remember…Feed Your Good Dog, so your good dog always wins!
