- Author BiographyBarbara Billig graduated from Washington University in St. Louis at age nineteen with a degree in biology and chemistry. After moving to southern California and living in the area of the San Onofre nuclear power plant she became concerned that there might be some event, such as an earthquake, that could cause the control rods in the nuclear plant to become frozen in place. Normally the control rods are lowered into the core of the reactor to absorb the radioactive particles being created, and slow down the intensity of the nuclear reaction, or raised to speed it up. But if an earthquake caused them to become immobile, so they could not be lowered, so much energy and heat would be generated the fuel could become molten, with fires and uncontrollable explosions following. To bring attention to this problem she wrote The Nuclear Catastrophe as a fiction novel of survival, to highlight the possibility of this disaster and all that would follow. The Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011 confirmed what had been written could happen. But the surprises that ensued from the government and associated entities such as the owners of the Fukushima power plant led to writing a sequel: #Betrayal.
