Kenneth Gordon Eade (born December 29, 1957)[1] is an American lawyer, [2] film producer,[3]environmentalist, and author, best known for his legal thrillers.

Kenneth Eade graduated from California State University, Northridge before attending Southwestern Law School in 1977. He practiced civil law for over thirty years in California.[4] He published his first non-fiction book, Bless the Bees:The Pending Extinction of our Pollinators and What You Can Do to Stop It,[5][6] in 2013, as well as the children's version, "A Bee See: Who are Our Pollinators and Why are They in Trouble." [7][8] Bless the Bees is used as text material for the Master of Law program at Oklahoma University College of Law.[9]

His first novel, "An Involuntary Spy," was published in December 2013. "An Involuntary Spy" is a fictional spy thriller that critics have said has broken wide open the GMO controversy, as noted in Digital Journal[10] The story follows a rogue scientist working for an American biotech firm who goes on the run from authorities after stealing information from his employer which proves government collusion and a cover-up of fraud surrounding the dangers of the company's genetically engineered foods. Said San Francisco Book Review, "An Involuntary Spy is absolutely riveting, suspenseful, and and an eye-opener to the controversial effects of genetically engineered food."[11] Midwest Book Review said, "Any who want a more realistic, modern-day James Bond complete with contemporary ethical concerns will find themselves held hostage to the fast action and intrigue in An Involuntary Spy, right up to the satisfyingly-unpredictable conclusion made all the more powerful for its real basis in today's uncertain experiments."[12] It was nominated for a "RONE Award" in 2014.[13]

In 2014, Eade began the "Brent Marks Legal Thriller Series" with "Predatory Kill," followed by "A Patriot's Act," which has been acclaimed as fast-paced, well-written legal thriller dealing with negative consequences of the Patriot Act, and is a prequel in the Brent Marks Legal Thriller Series, which matches Marks against the United States government, in an attempt to free a naturalized U.S. citizen from detention at Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp. Ind'Tale Magazine said, "An edge-of-your-seat thriller that could easily be transformed into a dramatic film. Simply riveting, start to finish." [14]Midwest Book Review said, ""It's all about delicate balance of power and experience - something gone awry in A Patriot's Act, and something explored through intimate descriptions. As Eade deftly juxtaposes the lives of two very different Americans experiencing two very different circumstances, he delves into the politics and processes of prisoners and military men alike, exposing the wounds of their experience and psyches and the points at which man's inhumanity stems from a worldview that dehumanizes and rips apart systems and people."[15][16][17] The third installment of the series, "HOA Wire," will be released on February 28, 2015.[18] A Patriot's Act is now being republished by Tate Publishing & Enterprises.

Law and political activism

After Southwestern, Eade practiced civil and criminal law for about a decade, then went into business law with an emphasis on securities law, and civil litigation. Eade practiced law from 1981 through 2013, mostly in Ventura County, California practicing business law and civil litigation with an emphasis on securities. The notable cases of his career included cases against the credit behemoths, Experian, Transunion, and Equifax, [24] as well as fraud cases against the major banks.

Writing career

In 2011, Eade began writing opinion pieces for the Los Angeles Daily Journal. Two of the articles centered on the subject of the unconstitutionality of the now defunct Monsanto Protection Act, and the dangers of genetically modified foods and neonicotinoid pesticides and their adverse effect on bees. This led to his first book, the non-fiction work, "Bless the Bees: The Pending Extinction of our Pollinators and What You Can Do to Stop It" in 2013, as well as the children's book, "Bee See: Who are our Pollinators and Why are They in Trouble?"[35] In conjunction with the cause of preventing extinction of the bees, [36]Eade collaborated with his wife, Photographer Valentina Eade, on the environmental exhibition, "Bee Cause I Care," in Monaco, sponsored by the Prince_Albert_II_of_Monaco_Foundation, and inaugurated by Albert_II,_Prince_of_Monaco in September 2014 to bring awareness to the environmental threats facing the bees.[37][38] [39][40][41]
