Pieces of You

While Mark is comatose, his spirit explores scenes from his past: Vietnam, a banking crisis, and piracy on the high seas; and then is given a peek into a future of space elevators, futuristic technology, and slavery for the masses. It's a saga of turning points and supernatural discoveries. Mark must ultimately choose between sacrificial love and recovery to the life he has dreamed of.

About Joyce Elferdink

After watching the movie, Julie and Julia, I realized the significance of shared glimpses and gambits on what is purposeful meaningful in our lives. Some of my own perceptions are profiled through my novel; who knows, maybe it will include “Pieces of You.”

This is what I would tell everyone: I am distinctly creative and reasonably intelligent, with a zany sense of humor. These are a few of my favorite things: science fiction (and most other books, too); stimulating conversation (actually that should be at the top of the list); any shades of pink and purple; trying new things and visiting new places (especially with my grandchildren); and the list goes on…

This is what you may want to know: I have a masters’ degree in Communications and Urban Studies from Michigan State and have used my interdepartmental degree for two different careers. Urban Studies enabled me to be an effective economic development director; the communications focus has allowed me to teach public speaking, English and writing, and several other topics at the college level starting with a public speaking class at a military base for Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, Tennessee. By the way, I never planned to teach public speaking because I didn’t take the course in college because of fear. Neither did I plan to go into the Peace Corps but I volunteered after my children left home. I was in the first group ever to go into Kazakhstan, with a mission to set up Small Business Development Centers to serve entrepreneurs who had never before had the opportunity to run a business. It was the most fascinating and frustrating experience of my life.

This is what I only tell my readers: You are urged to contribute realistic, respectful feedback on whatever I offer, but especially on passages from my novel. I challenge you, too, to take up the tools of verbal and written communication, our greatest resources for “being the changes we wish to see in the world” (Gandhi).
