Tatia’s Tattoo by Linda Brendle
Genre Legal Thriller
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
As a successful D.C. lawyer, Tatia’s mission in life was to destroy the sex trafficking trade in small-town America. She knew where to find it. She’d been there. With only apathetic foster parents to protect her, she fell prey to the local pimp. Trapped in the sordid underbelly of a small Texas town, she survived by sheer will. Her friendship with her fellow victim Cindy was the only light of humanity in the darkness until she saw a familiar face. Would Mrs. G, a mama bear of an attorney, still think she had strength and potential? Would Jesse, the young Christian tattoo artist and biker, still look at her with a twinkle in his eyes? Or would they both see only the mark of shame Eric had etched onto her forearm?
Where to buy Tatia’s Tattoo
Tatia’s Tattoo is scheduled to be released on or around July 1. I had hoped it would be available for pre-order by the time this posted. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen. Watch for details as soon as it is available.

I’m a life-begins-at-fifty kind of gal. I earned my Bachelors Degree at 51, I learned to ride a motorcycle at 55, and I published my first book, A Long and Winding Road: A Caregiver’s Tale of Life, Love, and Chaos, after I began collecting Social Security.
After fifteen years of caring for my parents, David and I moved to a tiny town in East Texas where I work part-time at my church, garden when the notion strikes, tend to the whims of the feral cat who took over our home in 2015, and write about all of the above.
I’ve been a blogger for a decade and a correspondent for our local newspaper for six years. My 2nd memoir, Mom’s Long Good-Bye: A Tale of Alzheimer’s, Grief, and Comfort, is due out later this year.
A common theme of all my books is “the least of these.” My experiences as a caregiver taught me that the aging and those suffering from dementia can definitely by called “the least of these.”
Several years ago a presentation at my church made me keenly aware of another group of “the least of these” – victims of child sex trafficking, especially in small-town America. That awakening led to the writing of Tatia’s Tattoo, due for release on or around July 1.
