Human beings should never be identified solely with their actions, everyone is worth more than the worse thing they've ever done.

Trust No One, Promise Nothing
This is a story with crime/thriller elements, a sense of humor, and a romantic subplot, inspired by the Trafficante family and Charlie Wall-about a man with a dark past, two careers (one legitimate and one illegitimate), three families (one being the mafia), and the woman who exposes him.
It explores the long lasting effects of childhood experiences: how they shape us - for better or worse - and our ability to change.
A Bit About Me
Ginger Wakem’s writing career up until now has been in the world of business and non-fiction filled with product and marketing materials, website content, magazine articles, company manuals and a successful book on City and Well Water that’s in its second printing with over 4,000 copies out. She is also a well-known photographer, has created several photo books and documented the lifestyle of Conch Key, a sixteen-acre island in the Florida Keys, over a period of twenty plus years, which can be found on her photography website ggwakem.photos. She documented her son’s journey with Tourette’s Syndrome, speaking at the TSA national convention and was interviewed by the BBC for their documentary on Tourette’s.
Her first novel Trust No One, Promise Nothing is a prickly story filled with bits and pieces of herself, her wisdom and at times her spark of naughty humor.
