Born in New York City, and raised there and in London and Switzerland, Riva loves where he lives now best of all: Gila, New Mexico. As creator of over 78 hours of primetime wildlife television, he spent a ton of time in parts of Africa, helped found a film history museum in Berlin, worked for more than 30 years with the leaders in aerospace and space exploration, negotiated environmental causes with the UN, USA and USSR, and acted as literary agent for over 100 authors. He draws on these experiences in shaping the tales he writes—for pure pleasure.
