THIS IS MY STORY OF FEELING EXPLOITED" ( exerpt from the book ) A native of Nashville Tn. Ms. Harrison's troubles eventually led to drug dealing, violent relationships, a six month stint in federal prison, and a life of cutting he body through self mutilation. " The author holds nothing back in her graphic decriptions of her tragic roller coaster
ride. The memoir proves to be a compelling page-turner that you just cant put down. It's a lot like watching a train wreck, except that it ends on an optimistic note," writes syndicated colmnist and AOL Black Voices reviewer Kam Williams in his column that appears in over 200 publications. Today, at age 29, Shawna has proven that shes not only a survivor but also an inspiration. After 15 years of livivg a lesbian lifestyle, Shawna is now choosing to have God at the forefront of everything she does in life. She's no longer involved in drugs and her previous illicit lifestyle,and says that she's now living a chaste life until marriage with a future " Mr. Right" comes along. The numerous scars that cover her arms from the years of mutilating her body have long since healed and so has Shawna. She has overcome her past and is now a born again Christian; a thriving entrepreneur and a sought after motivational speaker. Her current tome offers hope and encouragement to other who may have suffered some of the tragedies she's experienced during her traumatic formative years. Shawna is currently busy promoting her book with the local and national media and is available for speaking engagements.
