I'm Riyani, a story teller for adults, teens and kids!
Hello, my name is Riyani Patel. I am 16 years old and I live in Morgan Hill, CA. I am a junior in high school. My favorite hobbies are writing, drawing, collecting toiletries from nice hotels and hanging out with my family and friends. I would like to be a screenwriter in Hollywood as I grow up. It would be cool if I was an extra in movies and TV shows. 😊
With my love of writing, I became a teen author and storyteller because I want to make a difference in the world. My first book, The Boy Battle focuses on raising awareness for Tourette’s Syndrome, a neurological condition I have. My second book The ‘Terrible’ Bullies focuses on raising awareness of school bullying. I was bullied in middle school because of my tics and I don’t want others kids to go through the same experiences I had. I hope I can be an inspiration to others.
Please consider learning more about Tourette’s and what you can do to stop bullying in our schools and communities. Thank you. 💖
This book is about a young girl named Tanya Weeks who has tourette syndrome and she likes the quarter back of football named Jake Bridges but this mean cheerleader named Diamond Pollock gets in the way....
This book is about the three main characters in the first book team up together to stop the new bullies in the high school....
