Disintegrate is about Emily Weaver: a girl who goes away to college. On the surface, everything seems normal, but underneath, Emily has the ability to manipulate matter and no idea how or why she can do this. In the opening scene, she gets lost near a river at night in Pittsburgh. She's cold and tired, and suddenly, she hears music. She finds her way to a bar where a young man is singing. Jax isn't what she expects. He's nice. He flirts with her. There’s an immediate connection, but even though she really likes him, she’s afraid to let herself reach out to him. Of course, that’s just the beginning. Disaster waits just around the corner…
Christine Klocek-Lim spends most of her time daydreaming--which isn't much
different from what she did as a girl in northeast Pennsylvania, as a college
student in Pittsburgh, as a twenty-something technical writer in New York City,
and as a young mother in suburban New Jersey. For the past decade or so she's
been dream-surfing in the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania.
She received the 2009 Ellen La Forge Memorial Prize in poetry. She has four chapbooks: Ballroom - a love story (Flutter Press), Cloud Studies (Whale Sound Audio Chapbooks), How to photograph the heart (The Lives You Touch Publications), and The book of small treasures (Seven Kitchens Press). Her poems have appeared in Nimrod, OCHO, Diode, Riffing on Strings: Creative Writing Inspired by String Theory and elsewhere. Her work has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize and Best of the Net anthologies and was a finalist for 3 Quarks Daily's Prize in Arts & Literature. Her website is ChristineKlocekLim.com
