My name is Riley S. Keene and I’m a fantasy and LitRPG author.

Well, okay. That’s kinda a lie.

Riley S. Keene is actually the pseudonym for a married writing duo, also known as Robert and Kristen. They used to live in the Pacific Northwest and enjoyed all the rainstorms, lack of sunlight, and excess oxygen that come with living in that part of the US... but then tragedy struck and somehow they ended up in Pennsylvania.

Robert is a Pacific Northwest native who has a degree in Applied Mathematics and Computational Sciences. He has a love for video games and a dislike for pretty much everything else. Robert is in charge of writing the first draft for all of our books.

Kristen was born and raised in a town outside of Philadelphia. They have a degree in Multimedia Design and works full-time as a marketer for a Seattle engineering firm. They love gloomy weather, good books, food made from animals, and spending time with Robert. Kristen is in charge of outlining and editing for all of our books.

Our ultimate goal as an author is to write entertaining fantasy novels that are inclusive but not preachy. We strive to include as many cultures, settings, and characters as we can without relying on stereotypes or tropes. Doing so requires a lot of research and hard work – and we’re the first to admit that it’s never as in-depth as we would like. So we encourage you – if you find something in our books that doesn’t represent a lifestyle, culture, or setting correctly, please use the contact form and send us a message. We’d be happy to be educated. It’s kind of our thing.
