Confessions of an Introvert: The Solitray Path to Emotional Maturity

Confessions of an Introvert:
The Solitary Path to Emotional Maturity

by D. Stephenson Bond

D. Stephenson Bond writes a compelling and compassionate memoir of the ups and downs of everyday life as seen by a Jungian psychoanalyst who committed his life to the quest for knowledge about personality development in order to understand the mystery of his own near-death experience. Tracing the steps of each stage of personality development through which every life must pass from childhood to maturity, Bond reflects on thirty-five years of experience in Jungian psychology to tell the story of radical self-acceptance and individuation.

  • Healing Lily review by Gordon Hauptfleisch, in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer on May 2, 2010: "Blending Jungian imagery with elements of The Secret Garden, Bond's debut novel is an evocative look at personal loss and growth..."
    "...Lilly: levelheaded 9/11 widow and blue-collar budding singer/songwriter with, understandably, some emotional baggage... who stumbles into Daniel's life when neither thinks the time is right for a relationship. And prompt the sprains and strains of Football games and Classical strings: Each finds that somethings gotta give in the way of easier-said- than-done compromises and the conflicts to be found in big-lug brotherly hugs and standoffish habits dying hard...Bond, who himself is a practicing psychoanalyst, has turned in a debut novel that in its references and allusions to myth and Jungian psychology floats and flows over fascinating and unique undercurrents..."

Trying to find love once more, author D. Stephenson Bond uses his expertise in psychoanalysis to provide a thought provoking story of recovering from life changing disasters. Healing Lily is a worthy investment, well worth considering."

The Battle for Tomorrow

The Battle for Tomorrow

Debut novel by Frederick Bell

What if nature's revenge needed a little help? Ilon knew in his heart what it meant to be scheduled for extinction, but how could he ever convince the Egris, hunted for their hides, to fight? The Battle for Tomorrow is a tale of deep ecology with a militant edge, of animal instinct colliding with technology in a battle where the stakes are extinction or planetary conquest.


Healing Lily
Debut novel by D. Stephenson Bond

How do you go on your first date after losing your husband on 9/11? It?s been three years and yet Lilly struggles with hope and courage to meet the right kind of man who can help her find herself as a woman again. Kind of tall and kind of shy, Daniel is from another world in Lilly?s Boston, a Beacon Hill psychoanalyst with issues of his own.

Healing Lily tells the unique love story of two people frozen in the winter of their grief reaching for each other, reaching for love they are too hurt to find. Sensitively written, this probing novel explores the aftermath of 9/11 on an intimately human scale reaching deep into the human psyche to touch on themes of the healing power of psychoanalysis and Francis Hodgson Burnett's The Secret Garden.
