Caroline Giammanco grew up on a farm in the Ozarks of Missouri, outside the small town of Ava. After graduating from high school, she uprooted at the age of seventeen and moved to Tucson, Arizona where she attended the University of Arizona. Always interested in the world around her and how our system works, her Bachelor’s degree is in political science with an English minor. Caroline has taught public school for over twenty years in New Mexico, Arizona, and Missouri. She is currently an English teacher at a southern Missouri school. Caroline is the mother of two sons, Rick and Kevin, both military veterans.
The daughter of a deputy sheriff with a college degree isn’t the “typical” vision many people have of a woman in a prison relationship. The love and dedication Caroline and Keith have is real.
Bank Notes: The True Story of the Boonie Hat Bandit is Caroline’s first book. Her second book, Guilty Hearts: The World of Prison Romances, is now available.
