Submitted by the Oakhurst Library –
The Oakhurst Library is very pleased to host an event for local author Robert Williams, on Saturday, Oct. 26 at 10 a.m.
Bob is a veteran of the Vietnam War where he was awarded a Purple Heart among other military decorations. When he returned home, he earned a Bachelors Degree from Pepperdine University.
After 17 years, Bob retired from the Culver City Police Department as a Sergeant. He obtained a license as a Private Investigator and formed an investigative firm. His company worked fraud cases for insurance companies until he moved to the mountains.
He was hired as Senior Supervising Investigator at the Fresno County District Attorney’s office. After 5 years in that position, he retired to continue his passion, writing in the perfect environment of the Yosemite foothills.
Bob’s newest book is “T.Y.M.E. INTERRUPTED,” and you’ll find this novel is very exciting. It’s the story of a scientific expedition using a time machine to venture to ancient Egypt. Their mission uncovers the existence of a brand new element that could profoundly benefit humanity.
For protection, the crew is defended by a platoon of highly trained Army Rangers. When they make their way to the royal court of the Pharaoh, Ramses the Great, their plans go awry. Duped into captivity, they are subjected to cruelty and torture because the Pharaoh believes they posses mysterious powers.
The Mission Commander and his men must fight against overwhelming odds as they struggle to reach their rescuers. They are aided by Ramses’s queen and the climax is unexpected and startling.
You’ll really enjoy meeting Bob and hearing how he was inspired to write this exciting book.
The event will be held in the library’s new Community Room on Saturday, Oct. 26, at 10 a.m. If you have any questions about this special event, please call the library at 559-683-4838.
