I Warned You Not to Touch That


Bill Riddle is a feature writer and columnist.  His humor column, Bad Advice, reaches 700 million people.  This assumes each of his readers passes along the rags that he writes for to 350 million friends.  His book, 95 Chances for Love, nears completion. 

 In October, he won honorable mention in the Memoirs/Personal Essay category of the 78th Annual Writer’s Digest Writing Competition.  His winning essay, Hire Education, is a first-person account of his experience as a student in a driver’s education course taken to avoid “points” on his driving record.  Bill’s commitment to education prompted him to sponsor a writing contest of his own at Martinez Middle School in Lutz, Florida. 

 When he completes the nuclear reactor he’s building in his basement, he fears his work doing live television and co-founding a charity bike ride, Cure on Wheels, won’t seem that powerful.  In just two years, the ride has raised over $100,000 to fund research at Tampa’s Moffitt Cancer Center.  An avid cyclist, Bill raised over $50,000 for lifesaving cancer research at Boston’s Dana Farber Cancer Institute.  Somehow, he graduated from Boston University and Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Preservation, and Planning.

 Previously, Bill wrote Nantucket’s Affordable Housing Problem and Home Selling Secrets.  He is a contributor to Tampa Bay writer’s groups.
