Description

Four psychiatric wards

Three rehabs

Two jail cells

And a suicide attempt...




Hannah was told she would not make it to 25 with the way she was living. She had struggled with mental illness her entire life, but at 22 her demons came to a head at the grips of severe substance abuse, life-changing trauma, and two major deaths in her life.

Hannah's struggles land her places no one ever hopes to grace; jail and psych wards lead her to the brink of death. Running out of options she's left with two choices: live or die. This heart-wrenching memoir combines recovery with bittersweet romance told in a raw presentation that immerses the reader into the author's dark state-of-mind in every page.

Tiger Stripes is going to add a valuable voice to the conversation about women's mental health issues.

Review quote

Praise for Tiger Stripes




"Honest, and raw..." - Toya Carter




"A raw look into the life of addiction and mental health. I could not put this book down." - Justine A.




"I instantly found myself lost in the wonderfully colorful and descriptive imagery of this fast paced and gritty, heartbreakingly real feeling native. As both a mother and one who struggles with anxiety and depression, I fully identify with Hannah's chaotic character. I can't wait to finish this story of destruction and hope!" - Rebecca Thacher




"I rarely find myself in a position where I'm reading a "page-turner". However, Hannah's descriptive writing style and compelling storytelling creates an atmosphere in which you feel that she is taking you with her on this journey through addiction and emotional turmoil. One catastrophic event after another leads you to question, "how much more can she stand?" Not only does Hannah seem resilient, but she has recollection of every detail despite being under the influence of heavy drugs and alcohol for an entire year. Tiger Stripes is an excellent memoir of a girl who has survived the nearly impossible and has unapologetically accounted for a year of never ending misadventures." - Preston Huber




"I started reading this and couldn't put it down. Hannah shares her story in a way that shows her honesty and the strength she has gained by living through her life's struggles. The way she writes makes the reader feel as if they are experiencing these events right along with Hannah and offer an insight into the way that addictions can hold the mind captive. This is an intense read but extremely worth it." - Emma M
