Meet the Author

Ernest Dempsey is the pen name of Karim Khan. Dempsey hails from Hangu, a small town in Pakistan.

At twelve, he started writing detective stories, horror, thrillers, and humor. He has a Masters degree in Geology and one in English Literature.
Dempsey has authored four books and, in just the last few years, seen the publication of his poems, essays, short stories, and literary reviews worldwide. He is now the editor-in-chief of the literary magazine “Recovering the Self: A Journal of Hope and Healing” and also works as the country editor for Pakistan on the celebrated Internet news channel “Instablogs”.

    Touching stories of struggle and the strength of the human spirit

    Published four times per year, "Recovering the Self: A Journal of Hope and Healing" is ultimately a celebration of the human spirit's resilience to the myriad and excruciatingly difficult hurdles thrown at us during our lifetimes. It is also a testament of the surprising goodness in people. For the April 2011's Volume 3, Number 2, Editor Ernest Dempsey compiles stories, poems, and book excerpts from 31 different authors and includes six reviews of various books and movies. With such categories as Inspirational, Language and Culture, Humor, Memoir, Education, Emergency, Travel, and Family, there is something for just about anyone to enjoy. The stories contained in this issue of "Recovering the Self: A Journal of Hope and Healing" are touching and deeply personal. Some of the authors describe their own or even witnessed trials and how they've managed to overcome them despite the overwhelming and seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Others describe what it's like to live with or treat those with a personality or mental disorder or even horrific abuse. Still others simply put pen to paper and detail their private pain, perhaps as a way to heal. Heartfelt and moving, each page transports the reader into the author's own world; some accounts leave the reader with a newfound understanding of disabilities or hardships, some will leave a smile on your face, and others bring on the tears. "Recovering the Self: A Journal of Hope and Healing" explores the human spirit at a depth at which many of us are not accustomed. With only some very minor editing errors, the readings are raw, full of emotion and strength, and inspirational. I felt a connection with each writer as they described their experiences, whether on the brink of a breaking point or in the midst of an empowering epiphany. I also liked that I'd seen some of these writers in other forums. For example, I'd read a book on narcissism which referenced Sam Vaknin, I've enjoyed George W. Doherty's work during my studies in emergency management, and I've read or reviewed books authored by Tami Brady and Nancy Wesson, respectively. If you are looking for something profound that will pull on your heartstrings, look no further than this journal. Reviewed by Vicki Landes, author of "Europe for the Senses - A Photographic Journal"
