Broken hearts wandering in a trackless void
By Jim Byrne
My work involves a lot of time spent with unhappy couples, helping them to find a way out of their emotional misery. This is territory which I have know since early childhood, having grown up with unhappily married parents. My own first marriage was a mess.
But I have persisted with the challenge of how to recover from inadequate emotional wiring, inherited from badly wired parents, and I have found my way into a wonderfully calm and loving world of joy and peace.
Recently I have had a very productive few days of writing short stories. I wrote one per day for three days – all about love and lovelessness – and the pleasures and pains of romantic love. I then added two pre-existing stories (from my memoir) and created a book of short stories, which I published yesterday; and which is available today in the UK; and it will be available in the US and Europe in the next two or three days.
The five stories in this collection were designed to be therapeutic for myself, but also for my readers. Please take a look at the page of description of this book, here:
