Tina Truax is a free-spirited, sassy, independent woman who battles convention at every turn. In Girl on the Right: Memoir of a Life Upside Down, she shares a thoughtful expose of her many attempts at fitting in and behaving according to society's unattainable standards.
After a mental breakdown at age thirty-four, Tina took a closer look at where life had taken her and has chosen to move forward on her own terms. With Girl on the Right: Memoir of a Life Upside Down, she throws expectation to the curb in the pursuit of a life of truth and authenticity. She opens her memory box and recounts her darkest moments, unexpected joys, and her ultimate journey to healing and self-acceptance.
Inspired by a social media poster call-to-action to Be the Girl on the Right, which encourages women to not let themselves be defined by society s standards and stereotypes, Tina shares trials and misadventures as recovering church lady, wife, mother, friend, fat girl, and childhood sexual abuse survivor. Now, a champion and mentor for women, she proves by example what it means to Be the Girl on the Right.

The culmination of years as a marketing and public relations executive and published author, Tina founded Girl on the Write Publishing in 2016. As an independent book publisher, her goal is to provide women a platform to share personal stories of how they went beyond surviving trauma, and are thriving in lives of passion and purpose.
Aside from painting with words, Tina enjoys sipping good coffee, listening to her children's laughter, loving on her fur babies, and sharing new adventures with her husband.
