I'm Thankful I'm Not a Felon!

Someone pasted something silly on Facebook about jail and I commented, then pasted the fun little blurb on my profile.  Wrong move.  My ex-sister-in-law and brother both piped up with memories from the past reminding me that perhaps there is a little of me in my latest release, First Degree Innocence.

 I've blocked the horrible experience of when I was eighteen and arrested in a retail store called, White Front, back in the mid sixties. Of course they had to dredge everything up, but I'm sort of glad they did.  I had some good giggles this morning.

Then, my claim of "innocence" fell on deaf ears and I'd never felt so vulnerable, frustrated and frightened in my life.  In the end, my father, bless his heart, stood up for me and declared that his daughter was no thief, and I was released and all charges expunged.  I'd just taken my first job at the local Air Force Base and had a top security clearance.  I saw it all washing down the drain before my eyes. Whew...that was a close call.  I love you, Dad...even though you've been gone far too long from my life.

Anyhow...this was a great revelation and a chance to share First Degree Innocence with you here.  Carrie Lang feels the frustration, fright and vulnerability I felt on that horrible day, so I did draw from my own past.  Except she wasn't in for shoplifting a pair of $2.99 sandals...

Slow down Ginger...it is hard for me to keep up with all the books you write. What a busy author you are!

The books sounds terrific, Ginger! Way to go. And the trailer couldn't be doing a better job of selling that! But then your trailers are always sensational.
