A Life Not My Own (version 2)
Just Between Us – Inspiring Stories my Women

Tethered Angel

She’s been inspiring people with her novels of  her childhood memories and the joys and sorrows that she shares for her readers.

Tina Brown was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland.  She graduated from Southern High, the University of Maryland Baltimore County, and Regis University.  She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Masters of Science degree in Systems Engineering.  Tina is also the mother of two amazing people and the grandmother to the cutest little boy ever!

She recently assumed copyright privileges to her first book, "A Life Not My Own", and re-published it independently.  Tina shares her personal experiences of child abuse and neglect, her struggles as a teenager and in her young adult life. Read about her time at the university and in the US Army. This book started as a journal, an attempt to address many of the secrets she had pushed to the back in 
her mind.  As the memories continued to resurface, she was forced to address the issues that ultimately led to her sharing her past with readers all of the world as a powerful force of inspiration.

In the 5 STAR rated, FREE eBook, "Just Between Us - Inspiring Stories by Women", Tina joined forces with Janice Ross, Selena Haskins, Adrienne Thompson, Tamika Christy and Nicole Dunlap as they share a collection of short stories about the life challenges that they overcome.  This book continues to rank in the top 100 of several Amazon.com categories.

In, "Struggles of the Women Folk", Tina creates an engaging, fictional, though powerful piece from the stories that her grandmother shared with her as a child. The main character - Georgie is a young black girl who grows up the 1940s in southern Virginia - a time of prejudice, poverty and limited opportunities.

"Tethered Angel" is PART TWO - Struggles of the Women Folk. This story shares what happens to Georgie's daughter Angel after her abduction. Angel has a special gift hearing the thoughts of the people around her, but only if she reminds pure in mind and heart.

Tina considers herself to be a conduit for the fictional characters who speak to her and refuse to be quiet until their story is told.  Tina writes to capture her reading audience and enrich their lives through her introduction of rich characters and bold story telling.

Tina welcomes you to showcase her books at your book club or social gathering.  She loves meeting new people and sharing her inspirational stories of encouragement.

What was the inspiration behind The Struggles of Women Folk?  

I was inspired by the stories that my grandmother shared with me about how life was back in the day.  As a child, she lived in the “country”, southern Virginia.  I was intrigued by her stories and found myself taking the liberty of filling the blanks when her stories were incomplete.

What is your favorite part of the story and why?  

I really like the surprises that occur throughout the story.  One of my goals is to engage the readers.  Placing twists and turns in the story supports my goal.

Tell us about any recent works or what’s in the hopper for you~

I am working on a new book, with a brand new set of characters.  It is still a story about personal relationships and turmoil.  I am excited to see how the story unfolds.

What type of genre do you enjoy reading?  

I don’t have a particular genre.  I simply enjoy “good writing”.  I want to be engaged, swept away within the pages of the book.
