About the Author:

With Public Offerings, Bob LiVolsi won the Writers League of Texas prestigious manuscript contest for best thriller. He was also a finalist in the same competition for best narrative non-fiction. Public Offerings Book 1: Birthright was a Clue Award Finalist for best thriller or mystery. Bob started his career as a journalist and was managing editor of the Daily Kent Stater at Kent State University. There, he won the Sears Congressional Internship for his investigative coverage of racial tension on campus. A high tech executive on teams that took two companies public, Bob applied his experiences in the mercenary world of high-stakes investment to Public Offerings. As a vice president with Hewlett Packard and in his roles in building new companies, he traveled the world partnering with large corporations, governments and other international organizations. Bob is currently CEO of VRI, a humanitarian vaccine systems company. He has a certificate in vaccinology from the Pasteur Institute in Paris, and he has been a mentor for a vaccine formulation company in the National Science Foundation’s regional Innovation Corps program. His and his wife’s private support of missions in the Middle East, Sub-Saharan Africa and Central America brought him closer to the day-to-day challenges presented by disease, poverty, war and tyranny. In the mid-1990s, he began online communication with a missionary priest in Sierra Leone where he learned about the horrors there not yet reported in the western press. The priest disappeared and was assumed killed. He became the inspiration for Fr. Jim Reilly in Public Offerings. Bob LiVolsi lives with his wife in Austin, Texas. He is currently writing Courtship of Innocence, the sequel to the Public Offerings series.
