Hello fellow readers! Yes, I am the Mike Riley you have been looking for. The one who is on his third circumnavigation of the globe. The first was on an engineless 24' Columbia via Suez and Panama. It was an adventure, highlighted by Karen, my then pregnant wife, fighting off pirates and our son, Falcon, beating off a marauding Tiger Shark in the Indian.
I have written 17 books, two fictional, all spiced with the humor my writing is known for thorough out the world. Plus any that I finish before I have completed downloading them into Smashwords! I have to say Smashwords is a great outfit! (Always lick the hand that feeds you!)
I have led and adventurous life. I have been a penguin breeder, a car ferry captain, a long line fisherman, a great whale hunter (Catching them live for Sea World), an industrial spy, a sea lion collector, a microbiologist and the CEO of Husband for Rent. And lots of other less eye catching tasks!
But my favorite part of my life has been writing books for you to enjoy. I certainly love reading books and it is great to pay the experience forward as it were.
I hope you will enjoy the reading adventure ahead of you!
It starts with a tiger shark attack, moves on to love in the tropics on coconut lined beaches and live volcanoes around the bay. The couple were not crazy despite the fact that they climbed down into one of the very active volcanoes just to throw rocks into the lava or that they sailed around the world on an engineless 24' sloop. Are they crazy? Decide for your self! Romance, adventures! Fun!
