    fracturedFeatured Author of the Day: Rich Adams

    Geophysicist Mark Cabot and his lover/fiancé Maura race against an impending, but unknowable, geological deadline to prevent a nuclear meltdown that threatens future generations with a nuclear winter, spelling the end of human-kind, and perhaps all life on earth. The action ranges between Washington DC; Addis Ababa, Ethiopia; Chincha Base, Peru; Cranston Labs, Snedens Landing, New York. It covers twelve days from discovery to the final climax. Mark faces death from a foreign covert group seeking nuclear power in their search for dominance over other nations. The resounding climax is a breathtaking, armed confrontation and geologic collapse in Peru, deep beneath the Andes Mountains.

    Mini Interview With Rich Adams, Author of FRACTURED

    Second Wind: How long had the idea of your book been developing before you began to write the story?

    Rich Adams: At least a year. Always a science buff, I became intrigued by a book, The Floor of the Sea by William Wertenbaker, the story of Plate Tectonics and the work of Maurice Ewing. Then, problems with nuclear waste, which was in the news at the time, caught my attention.. This was in the mid-seventies. At the time I was ‘between positions, ‘a euphemism for out of work, and decided to give writing a try.. It had been mostly written and then placed in a drawer when life got in the way. Beginning in 2010 I worked on rewriting and bringing it up to date for about a year and then spent two years trying to get it published.
