“What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson



This is an important, searingly honest book that will change lives. Tina is one of the bravest woman I have ever met.

Lorraine Kelly

Tina  has written a courageously honest narrative of her ordeal with anorexia. I gasped, cried, cheered and loved the author for telling her profound story. It’s a story that has needed to be told with such touching yet brutal sincerity - the reader cannot hide from it - and that’s a marvelous thing!

Brenda Chapman - Writer/Director of 'BRAVE'

Thankyou Tina, for having the courage to publish Seconds to Snap, I finished it yesterday and had my first decent nights sleep for a year.
I write this through my tears as my daughter has anorexia and has been in an eating disorder unit for a year (apart from one disastrous time when she was discharged)
Although my tears flowed when I read how much Tina suffered I also take inspiration from her strength and hope that my girl will one day be free of this frightening and destructive illness
How wonderful that she became a Mother, you never know one day I might be a Grandma.
I have highlighted so many passages in the book that i intend to reread as our journey continues.
If anyone has any doubts that their child is suffering, get immediate help and advise from experts, don't wait.
