From the Author
I considered writing a book for years, but no one subject caught my attention enough to make me sit down and begin one. All that changed after I met Keith Giammanco while working as a teacher inside the Missouri prison system. Before meeting Keith, I was shocked by some of the behavior I saw in the prison. I have always been interested in politics and the law, and I have a strong belief that the system should do its job of rehabilitating inmates while keeping society safe. I found out the good guys don't always wear white hats, and our communities are the ones who lose in the long run. Keith's desire to have his story told--and told truthfully--was an opportunity to share not only his experiences but mine as well. My blog can be found on the Newsy Notes page of booniehatbandit.com. Thank you for reading Bank Notes.

Mrs Giammanco's telling of both Kieth's story and that of the state continually refusing to listen to not only reason, but their absolute refusal to let these two spend any time together at all. It is a story fraught with warnings not only for would be bank robbers, but to citizens thinking to themselves, 'This can never happen to me'.
My admiration and applause goes out to Caroline, she did a wonderful job on her first undertaking and I sincerely hope, she opts to continue not only the fight, but writing as well.
