What’s the Chain Reaction story about?
The year is 2027. A 19-year-old science polymath Amy Austin takes on environmentalist and Academy Award winning actor Josh Manning in a debate over the fate of a nuclear plant in rural Michigan. But all is not as it seems. Amy is building a new nuclear reactor. The technology is 30 years ahead. . .Small. . . Light. . . Safe. . . Powerful. . . and Affordable. The world energy market, already in disarray, is controlled by some of the most powerful people on Earth who start making their moves ahead of the disruption they know Amy’s reactor will cause. A Chain Reaction ripples around the globe. As an ecoterrorist cell moves against Amy, her loyal group of unlikely characters risks everything to protect and help her. There is no going back. Time is running out. It’s now or never in what is a breathtaking and dangerous race to save the planet. From ourselves.
"The novel is about change. Our fear of it. And how one person can make a difference in the world. And really, that happens when there is a vision presented to us in a story format that is empathetic, inspirational, and hopeful.
We learn that Amy Austin’s real life role model is Marie Curie, a two-time Nobel Prize Winner in physics and chemistry. Marie was born on November 7, 1867, and discovered radiation. Her life story is an inspiration to generations of aspiring scientists, and her birthday is an apropos day to introduce popular culture to the positive role of nuclear energy in our lives. There’s been enough apocalyptic entertainment about nuclear energy. It’s about time that the good guys told their story.” -- Shawn Connors
