Hi there!

This is the online home of Reading Warrior, the publishing house of Kiwi writer and teacher, David Riley.

I write books and teaching materials for young people and educators.

  • to help young people with their literacy
  • to help them learn more about their cultures
  • to inspire them with stories of positive role models and achievers

Sign up to my mailing list and I’ll send you a free copy of Read to Achieve with the All Blacks, a workbook that uses the All Blacks to teach reading comprehension skills.

Go to FREE STUFF  to download Reading with the Warriors, a free workbook that teaches reading comprehension skills using the New Zealand Warriors rugby league team.

Hover over the BOOKS or PLAYS tabs above to find out more about my writing.

Go to the SHOP for information about buying my books.

Check out my BLOG if you want to read my latest thoughts.

For information on booking me for a visit to your organization, go to the SCHOOL VISITS page.

Thanks for coming by.

    Hello there David – have just been reading your amazing Biography and all about your books and what you have achieved in your life. I have thoroughly enjoyed and feel extremely proud of you and what you have done and where you are heading. What an amazing young man you are. I will continue to “keep an eye” on you – so keep up the good work – you have so much to offer and do such a lot for the young people in our society. (Of course you realise that behind every good man there is a good woman!)

    Thanks again David for the time you spent with us last thursday. It was really appreciated and intend to get your other books for my library. There’s nothing like interest when you know the author.
    thanks again
