Bill Haltom is a father, husband, lawyer and award-winning writer. He is the author of six books and has been a newspaper and magazine humor columnist for over 25 years.

A popular speaker, Bill has delivered commencement addresses and has been the featured speaker at conventions, banquets and leadership seminars. Bill lives in Memphis with his wife (Judge Claudia), his daughter (Princess Margaret) and his two beagles (Atticus and Scout).
