John Wayne Falbey is a modern Renaissance man: attorney, martial artist, real estate developer, triathlete, university professor, competitive cyclist, lecturer, downhill skier, author, and adventurer. He is a classic iconoclast with little regard for "political correctness", which he considers to be a potentially terminal illness for a free and constitutional society. Falbey delights in pushing the envelope: physically and mentally. Challenges are to be embraced. Losers are not the stuff of legends.
Professionally, he has published numerous works of nonfiction on law, real estate development, and finance; but his preference has always been fiction, particularly the thriller genre. He wrote his first thriller novel in his “spare time” as a student at Vanderbilt University School of Law in order to counter the mind-numbing regimentation of law school. The writers currently at the top of his reading list include Brad Thor, Alex Berenson, Lee Child, Elmore Leonard, and David Baldacci. His latest novel, Sleeping Dogs: The Awakening, is the first in a planned trilogy about the ruthless, genetically evolved black ops group known as the Sleeping Dogs. Book Two in the series, Endangered Species, is planned for publication next summer. His next novel, The Quixotics, will be published in October 2012.
In addition to the Juris Doctor degree, he also earned Master and Doctoral degrees in business management. He is a frequent lecturer, panelist, and moderator for professional symposiums in the real estate development industry. He continues his activities as a private sector real estate investor and developer. In his spare time, he is a competitive cyclist. At the moment, however, he is recovering from reconstructive surgery to a shoulder separated in a recent bicycle crash. When not traveling for business or pleasure, he and his wife live in Naples, Florida.
