American astrologer and astrological report writer, author of the reports Planetary Influence Profile, Astro Identity Reading, Destiny and Decisions and One Year Planetary Preview. Riley served in World War II. Riley has a bachelor's degree in vocational rehabilitation from the University of Minnesota, with a minor in psychology, and a Human Services Certificate, also from the University of Minnesota.

He became seriously interested in astrology in 1972. When Noel Tyl published his Principles and Practice of Astrology in 1974, Riley devoured the twelve-volume course and began a limited practice of astrology amongst his friends. In 1984 he got his first computer and began writing his own interpretations and text. (quoted from webpage listed under Source Notes).

Goodwin seems to have infringed on Robert Hand's copyright, by copying or paraphrasing text from the book 'Planets in Transit' and selling it as his own transit interpretations. The case is currently (2013) under legal investigation.

Source Notes
