Tatia's Tattoo by Linda Brendle @LindaBrendle #RLFblog #NewRelease #LegalThrillerLinda Brendle, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book.

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?
Why did you write this book?
I live in a tiny town in East Texas that feels isolated and safe from the world. Several years ago I was shocked when a couple gave a presentation at our church about their organization, one that fights the sex-trafficking trade in a slightly larger town about fifty miles from where I live. The name of the organization is For the Silent, and it is my hope that Tatia’s Tattoo will help give a voice to the exploited children and youth who cannot speak for themselves.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I’ve been a mystery fan since I discovered Agatha Christie when I was in the fifth grade.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
There are many, but the first one that comes to mind is Spenser, the main character in Robert B Parker’s Spenser Series.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m beginning edits on the rough draft of Fallen Angel Salvage, a sequel in which we visit Tatia and her family ten years later.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
I have a second memoir that is due to come out shortly after Tatia’s Tattoo, but I don’t have a release date yet. It is called Mom’s Long Good-Bye and is the “rest of the story” after my first memoir, A Long and Winding Road.

Linda first began to write during her years as a caregiver. After two memoirs, A Long and Winding Road and Mom’s Long Good-Bye, she ventured into the world of fiction. Tatia’s Tattoo will be followed soon by Fallen Angel Salvage, the continuing story of Tatia, her family, and Eric ten years later.
In semi-retirement from the business world, Linda holds a part-time job as secretary for her church and an on-line position as an accounting specialist for BookPros. She also writes a column for the weekly newspaper in the tiny East Texas town where she and her husband David live with their feral cat Kitty.

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.
