Born and raised in Atlanta GA Tinnie Garlington has always had a passion for teaching. At preschool age Tinnie would tell the class "don't listen to the teacher, listen to me". As she grew older "life" happened and she became a mother at the age of 14. Even though she traveled from school to school, living with anyone who would take her in, she never gave up on learning. Through those experiences she began to write in notebooks about how she was feeling and in some cases make up stories so that she could escape her reality. Now the Atlanta born "Grady Baby" Tinnie C. Garlington has embarked on her passion to motivate and encourage individuals to see beyond their past. Don't Look Back, Look Forward was birthed from a dark place. Tinnie discovered healing through writing and wrote poetry and plays, yet was too afraid to move forward on her dreams. Her hopes is that her first book titled "Don't Look Back, Look Forward" will capture the attention of those who are looking for a way forward and encourage them to never give up and allow the hard times to serve as a solid foundation for growth and a positive future.
