Logan Blackisle (loganblackisle) | 6 comments Robert Turnbull
Robert Turnbull Jr.
Turnbull Jr., Robert

Robert Turnbull Bowman

Pretty sure the first three are the same - not sure about the fourth.

I was looking for information about his series, 'Hawk's Legend', which I instead found here:

There are shared books with the non-Jr. name, but I think there might be more than one Robert Turnbull amongst them. The books for Jr. don't have "Jr." on the cover so I am not sure what the best course of action would be.

Abcdarian | 20016 comments The author name on the inside of the novels is Robert A.J. Turnbull Jr., if that counts for anything.

Scott | 21475 comments Ok, I'll sort them into that name, since I believe the most complete name is the preferred one by GR standards.

I am not the "Turnbull Bowman" however I have written using the "Jr." and without (just an oversight when listing my books on Amazon)
For a full list of my books (paid and free) check out my website.
BTW: I always write under my full name and initials listed on the credits page. Thanks for the interest.
