‘Roaming Riley’ author Allison Wiest to sign books April 16

April 7, 2022

Allison Wiest, author of “Roaming Riley: A Delmarva Adventure,” will visit Rehoboth Beach to launch her newest book in the series, “Roaming Riley: A Baltimore Adventure.”

Wiest will be signing books outside from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Browseabout Books, 133 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth Beach. In case of inclement weather, the signing will be moved indoors.

In “Roaming Riley: A Baltimore Adventure,” tabby cat Riley is off on his second jaunt when his owner takes him to Baltimore to stay with his dog and cat cousins. With the help of a special tour guide, Riley will explore many famous attractions around the city. Activities include taking a boat ride, joining a parade, cheering at sports events and more, while meeting many new animal friends along the way.

This is Wiest’s second book in what she hopes will be a series of Riley’s adventures around the world. It is published by Salt Water Media and is priced at $12.99. “Roaming Riley: A Baltimore Adventure” is suitable for ages 7 and up.

In Wiest's first book, readers met Riley, an adventurous tabby cat who unexpectedly found himself in Ocean City, Md.

Wiest was an elementary school teacher for 12 years but has had a passion for writing since she was young. “Roaming Riley: A Delmarva Adventure,” published in 2020, earned an honorable mention in the Purple Dragonfly book awards and was a finalist in the National Indie Excellence Awards. Wiest grew up in the Baltimore suburbs, so it was fitting for Riley to explore that city next. Wiest currently lives in Selbyville with her husband, two daughters, three cats and a dog.
