It takes little detective work to find out that Riley Currado will be writing as the Story Spotlight columnist this year for clay Magazine, but what else is known about him? He is fourteen years old and lives in Lake Hughes, near Los Angeles in California. He has many hobbies, such as mountain biking, as he has been on the Antelope Valley Composite Mountain Bike Team for the past three years. He also does gymnastics, enjoys shooting his compound bow as well as many other sports, and also enjoys reading series such as The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lord of the Rings, and The Wingfeather Saga.
Riley aspires to become a journalist one day, which is partly why he chose to write for clay; it is good experience and should help him decide if he wants this to be his future. When asked what he would do if he woke up six inches tall, he said he would use the opportunity to explore the world, thinking of all the amazing places he could go through at his new height, possibly even training a hawk to be his personal airplane. You can anticipate great articles from Riley this year!
