The Lady Who Chained Her Baby To The Bed reads like fiction but is an all true riveting account filled with despair, pain, and bad choices. It's an unforgettable reading experience of self discovery and how a woman made peace with herself and an inspiring testament of the healing powers of prayer.

"I had to write this book to finally explain my side of the story." Tia L. Lincoln
In a voice that is raw and uncut, Baltimore author TIa L. Lincoln recounts with brutal honesty her four month ordeal at the Women's Detention Center in Baltimore City. It answeres the question on everybody's mind. How and why could someone do something like this?
"On June 19 2006, on a pleasant, sunny afternoon at 11:47am, a Baltimore City police officer responded to 1607 Brenton Avenue to investigate a 911 call. Upon his arrival, he met with a nine year old male, later identified as David Gees, who told the officer to respond to 1507 Brenton Avenue. When the officer arrived at the address, a block away, he spoke to eight year old Justin Wheeler, who did not know why the officer was there. At that time, the officer heard someone yell, "Help! I'm up here!" As the cop went upstairs to investigate, he observed a closed bedroom door with a bolt lock at the top and a pad lock at the bottom of the bedroom door. The officer was able to push the door open enough to see inside and spot a female chained to a day bed with no mattress, wearing a white tank top with underwear. At that point in time, he called other officers to the scene. When they entered the bedroom door, they observed a female, later identified as fifteen year old Kristol Lincoln, who had a silver chain wrapped around her right ankle,that was chained to a daybed. They also observed that there was a toddler's potty in the bedroom. Kristol stated to the officers that she had been chained up since Friday June 16 2006 at 2300 hours with no food or water. She also stated that she had not been bathed. The officers were able to cut the chain off the bed and off her ankle. The paramedics were called and when they arrived, they transported Kristol and her brother Justin to Johns Hopkins Hospital for a routine check up. Kristol's condition was fine. So was her brother's. They both were then transported to the Baltimore City Department of Social Services. No adults were present at the scene. Also Baltimore City's Crime Lab responded and collected the chain and the lock that was connected to the chain. A criminal warrant was obtained for the mother, who was identified as thirty three year old Tia Lincoln, a local author of true life stories and owner of a small cleaning company. The children were released to Debra Collins, a Baltimore City social worker. Also, Kristol stated to the officers that her mother's boyfriend, identified as thirty year old Saul, chained her to the bed first and then her mother unchained her to let her empty out her potty, then chained her back to the bed. A criminal warrant was then obtained for Saul, as well..."
