In DATING SILKY MAXWELL, TJ Butler brings to life a chorus of passionate, damaged characters who leave their pasts behind and reinvent themselves until their mistakes no longer define them.
In DATING SILKY MAXWELL, a facial scar alters a former sex worker’s identity. A social media influencer leads a double life, and a mysterious, fortune-telling stranger makes promises for a price. A jilted bartender leaves her seaside inheritance in flames. A woman kills an unnerving stranger while defending her dog. Left at the altar, an office worker finds her roots at a truck stop. A woman on a deserted farm calls on nature to defeat a would-be rapist, and a lonely heart’s new boyfriend may have questionable motives. From a rundown coal country dog track to a glittering Washington, DC high-rise, Butler brings to life a chorus of passionate, damaged characters who leave their pasts behind and reinvent themselves until their mistakes no longer define them.
