ROBERT THORNHILL, M.A.
At age 66, Bob wrote the first book in the Lady Justice series, Lady Justice Takes a C.R.A.P. from his own perspective and experience as a Senior Citizen.
In the the first sequel, Lady Justice and the Lost Tapes, Bob draws on his personal experience as an Elvis impersonator, (just for fun).
Bob and his wife, Peg, lived in Maui, Hawaii, for five years and the third installment in the Lady Justice series, Lady Justice Gets Leid, is set in the beautiful Hawaiian Islands.
After moving back to Missouri, Bob & Peg lived in a log home on 70 acres in rural St. Clair County. The rustic Ozarks and the Osage wilderness provided the background for his fourth novel, Lady Justice And The Avenging Angels.
After three years in the woods, Bob & Peg moved back to Independence, Mo. and Bob penned the fifth Lady Justice novel, Lady Justice and the Sting, which won the Pinnacle Achievement Award for Best Mystery Novel for the Winter of 2012 by the North American Booksellers Exchange.
Shortly thereafter, came volume #6, Lady Justice And Dr. Death, which won the Pinnacle Achievement Award for Best Mystery Novel, Fall 2011 by the North American Booksellers Exchange.
The seventh volume in the series, Lady Justice And The Vigilante, won the Pinnacle Achievement Award for the Best New Mystery Novel for the Sunner of 2012 by the National Association of Book Entrepreneurs and won Honorable Mention recognition at the Southern California Book Festival.
Bob's grandson, Blake, was given a second grade school assignment to write a book. His novel was about a rainbow, a leprechaun and a pot of gold. This little book was Bob's inspiration for writing the children's Rainbow Road series. The first in the series, Super Secrets of Rainbow Road, was so well received, he wrote Super Powers of Rainbow Road soon after. Blake encouraged grandpa to keep writing and soon, Hawaiian Rainbows, Patriotic Rainbows, Sports Heroes Of Rainbow Road, Ghosts And Goblins Of Rainbow Road and Christmas Crooks Of Rainbow Road rounded out the seven volume series.
Bob's eighth novel, Lady Justice and the Watchers asks the reader, "Is Big Brother watching you?"

Bob and his wife, Peg, attended their 50 year class reunions, giving Bob plenty of material to write volume #12, Lady Justice and the Class Reunion.

While Walter Williams is a fictional character, many of his adventures and friends are anecdotal and based on Bob's real life. Bob holds a Master's Degree in Psychology from the University of Missouri-Kansas City, but his wit and insight come from his varied occupations: stock boy, postman, truck driver, social worker, landlord, and finally to thirty years as a realtor, most of which as Broker/Manager of one of the largest real estate companies in Metropolitan Kansas City.
He lives with his wife, Peg, in Independence, Mo.
