Tom Bleakley

Tom Bleakley practices as a trial lawyer specializing in pharmaceutical litigation and pro bono causes involving constitutional issues. His legal experiences form the bases for his writings. He spent seven years in the pharmaceutical industry during which time he co-authored a two-volume textbook,"A Teaching Program in Psychiatry" used by medical schools as a beginning course in diagnostic psychiatry. Tom's recently completed third novel, Safe Nowhere, was released in early 2016 and depicts the dangers of dangerous foreign generic drugs sold to unsuspecting users in the U.S. His first novel, Rx for Mass Murder, is a fictionalized account of the impact of DES on young men when their mothers were administered the drug during pregnancy and is currently being revised to reflect recent scientific developments. His second novel, 'Serenity', was published in September 2012 and describes the tragic impact of a drug company's fraudulent scientific work leading to the marketing of a benzodiazepine-type drug that causes users to kill themselves or others. Tom is working on his next novel, a fictionalized version of a highly publicized murder trial where a disreputable scientist claimed to be able to identify the presence of a drug in post mortem body tissue when no other scientist in the world could do so. Tom divides his writing time between Michigan and Lakewood Ranch, Florida and plays tuba in several concert bands including the Venice (Florida) Concert Band, Suncoast (Florida) Concert Band, Farmington Hills (Michigan) Community Band and Charlevoix (Michigan) City Band. He was a college miler and has run twenty eight marathons.
