J.K. Franko was born and raised in Texas at a time when what he really wanted to do in life – writing and film – were not considered legitimate career paths. His Cuban-American parents agreed there were only three acceptable options for a male child: doctor, lawyer, and architect. After a disastrous first year of college pre-Med, he ended up getting a BA in philosophy (not acceptable), then he went to law school (salvaging the family name). Some of his papers were on the law journal, cited by courts and he even appeared on the National Law Journal’s “Worth Reading” list – for law – which is the equivalent to a top review in the New York Times. While moving up the big law firm ladder, Franko also published a book (non-fiction) and a number of articles. The, after ten years, he decided that law and family life weren’t compatible. And thus decided to go back to school where he got an MBA, and later a PhD, crossing the line from well-educated to over-educated around the turn of the century. He left law for corporate America, with long stints in Europe and Asia and it was his wife who pushed him to write novels. And so, after thousands of hours writing, and seven or eight literary miscarriages over the course of eighteen years, he completed his first book, finally launching his career as a writer of fiction. Ironically, though he started writing fiction before any of his three children were born, they were all old enough to see and remember their father’s first book launch. J.K. Franko now lives with his wife and children in Florida with their four dogs and one cat.Read more Read less
