GP James is a music producer, sound engineer, screenplay writer, poet, and now author. Meltdown is a science thriller, combining elements of natural disaster, nuclear meltdowns, panic, anxiety and that intense feeling of claustrophobia we all gravitate to in a good thriller. Not only is the writing compelling, but the details behind how exactly something like a nuclear meltdown would happen are incredibly well researched, only adding further to the elements of realism that permeate the story.
Meltdown centers around Bear Mountain Nuclear Energy Center, around 30 miles outside of New York City, and sitting one mile away from an active fault line. When the fault line rocks, an earthquake shakes the town – and one of the nuclear reactors at Bear Mountain is lost. Trace, the plant supervisor, must find a way against all odds to save the reactor, while his wife Avi has to find their daughter in New York City – and then make it out to safety. But as things keep taking turns for the worse, and radiation seeps out into the environment, Trace must decide to save the nuclear plant and the millions of people in the city, or finding his family and saving himself.
Packed with thrills and heart-pounding turns, GP James has written a brilliant hit. Watch the video below, where we interview him on writing inspiration, researching nuclear facilities, and what’s coming next.
