Broken Boy

This is the first book in my autobiographical series. I begin with a look at my parents before I was born. Family dysfunction has its root in the past. By seeing the past stories, one can better understand just how a young couple in love end up making bad parenting decisions.

There is a reason for everything that happens in life. Why are some children victims of abuse, and not others? Of course, the story only talks about the author’s experiences.Yet, in retelling these early life experiences, the reader will notice that there is no blaming or anger directed at the family of origin. There is sadness, and perhaps even compassion for the parents who were caught in their own histories of abuse.

On the Broken Road

In this second volume, the author leaves his family of origin, an escape from the mad cycles of family dysfunction. Taking solace in music, and another victim of sexual and emotional abuse, the author tells his tale of being a wandering folk musician, playing all over Canada.

There comes a point where the author can no longer care for the psychological needs of his girlfriend, forcing a return to the parental home. Once again caught in the continuing dramas of home, he decides to again escape. A gypsy-like adventure unfolds, telling the story of a flower child musician breaking hearts and having his heart broken in return. The story concludes when the broken road he is following ends. He meets the woman he is destined to call soulmate.

This story tells how the author has dealt with the old issues of sexual abuse, physical abuse, and a host of other issues that marked his childhood and youth.
