My first novel, Bank Notes: The True Story of the Boonie Hat Bandit, is in the hands of the editors now.  Here is a peek at what this true crime story is all about:

The St. Louis area is gripped by a spree of twelve bank robberies that leave local and federal authorities baffled. Dubbed the Boonie Hat Bandit, this criminal methodically robs banks in broad daylight leaving everyone to wonder, Who is this man?  Law enforcement is scrambling, and the robberies make national news. In September 2008, the suspect is apprehended and the world finds out his shocking identity: Donald Keith Giammanco, a quiet, middle-class, single father of twin daughters. The big mystery remains: how and why would he enter a life of crime? In spite of requests to tell his story, Keith Giammanco refuses to give insights into his motivations for years, until now.

Follow me as I take you on a journey through Keith Giammanco's experiences and his motivations for committing twelve robberies.  It is an eye-opening look at our criminal justice and prison system, and you will be introduced to a man who is not the typical criminal.
