Meet new FAPA member Ginger Wakem, photographer and debut novelist

Jul 27, 2019Member Updates

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.com.?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 Everyone Wants To Kill Ray, is a prickly story that leads the reader through a tangle of blood relations that crisscross one another over several decades. There’s plenty of action with murders, adultery, drug-running and adopted children born out of wedlock filled with bits and pieces of herself, her wisdom and at times her spark of naughty humor.

She is a fourth generation Floridian, travels with her husband and three elderly chihuahuas in their RV most summers and has finally let her muse out of confinement.
