About “A Life not my Own”

In A Life Not My Own, Tina shares her personal experiences of child abuse and neglect, her struggles as a teenager and in her young adult life. The book started as a journal and was her attempt to address many of the secrets she kept from her family, pushing it all to the back in her mind. As a young mother, the memories continued to resurface, forcing her to address the issues that ultimately led to sharing her past with readers around the globe as a powerful force of encouragement and inspiration.
