A tormented and delusional Prince Hamlet once famously said that nothing is either good or bad but thinking makes it so. True...At First is a glimpse into an unfiltered worldview where even a serial killer father observes a familial code of conduct, and hellish pain cannot dampen the spirit of a woman determined to live and love beyond it.
Our feelings can drive us to do foolish things; some result in tragedy, some redeem us.
When we wrap those feelings in a shroud of shame and try to avoid the consequences, we tend to lose our way in life. True...At First invites us to step outside our judgmental selves and pursue a deeper understanding of even the simplest acts; ours and those of others.
B.J. Davis started writing creative fiction and poetry at age 13, then grew up and became an attorney to express her analytical tendencies. Practicing law took her off track for awhile until a bad breakup and the songs of Leonard Cohen pulled her back into the creative writing groove. Her past publications have included legal articles, essays and commentaries. True...At First is the beginning of the expression of her wildest dream--to be honest with herself and helpful to others. These stories work like mood changes, lifting you here, dropping you there; unpredictable, like most of life, yet reachable.
