Robert Thornhill, author of the fifteen volume Lady Justice mystery/comedy series, has been named one of ‘50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading’, sponsored by The Authors Show, and was the overall winner in the ‘Fiction’ genre.

Independence, MO, December 14, 2013 - (PressReleasePoint) - Mystery/comedy author, Robert Thornhill, has been named one of ‘50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading’. Thornhill was chosen from a field of hundreds of authors through a public voting process and was the overall winner in the ‘Fiction’ genre.

“It is an honor,” stated Mr. Thornhill, “to be included in this year’s ‘50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading’. I want to thank the fans of the Lady Justice series for their support.”

Thornhill has been dubbed ‘The Master of Hysterical Fiction’. His Lady Justice mystery/comedy series, about a 65-year-old retiree that becomes a cop, has been compared to Janet Evanovich’s highly successful Stephanie Plum series.

Lady Justice and the Vet, the latest volume in the series, debuted as #1 in Amazon’s ‘Cozy Mystery’ and ‘Humor’ categories and #8 in Amazon’s ‘Top 100’.

Lee Ashford, writing for Reader’s Favorite, writes, “Mr. Thornhill has an uncanny talent for bringing our attention to a serious problem while also entertaining and amusing us. Robert Thornhill’s house will one day be a National Monument. Okay, maybe that’s a little over the top, but he is a very good storyteller, and a very good writer. I anticipate with great relish each new release in his Lady Justice series. His writing is superlative, and his ability to inform and amuse, almost in the same sentence, makes him a consummate storyteller.”

The Lady Justice series is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and on his website.

Award-winning author, Robert Thornhill, began writing at the age of sixty-six and in four short years has penned fifteen novels in the Lady Justice mystery/comedy series, the seven volume Rainbow Road series of chapter books for children, a cookbook and a mini-autobiography.

Lady Justice and the Sting, Lady Justice and Dr. Death, Lady Justice and the Vigilante, Lady Justice and the Candidate, Lady Justice and the Book Club Murders and Lady Justice and the Cruise Ship Murders won the Pinnacle Award for the best new mystery novels of Fall 2011, Winter 2012, Summer 2012, Fall 2012, Spring of 2013 and Summer 2013 from the National Association of Book Entrepreneurs.

Many of Walt’s adventures in the Lady Justice series are anecdotal and based on Robert’s real life.

Although Robert holds a master’s in psychology, he has never taken a course in writing and has never learned to type. All 26 of his published books were typed with one finger and a thumb!

His wit and insight come from his varied occupations, including thirty-three years as a real estate broker. He lives with his wife, Peg, in Independence, Missouri.
