Frank’s latest novel is THE WIND GUARDIAN, an edge-of-your-seat stand-alone thriller published on December 4, 2015.
This fast-paced thriller brings to life a very real threat facing the United States. With the help of an inside man, a group of determined terrorists siege a nuclear power plant, intending to spread radiation and wreak destruction into the world.
We recently had the opportunity to spend some time with Frank to chat more about the storyline of THE WIND GUARDIAN and the real life experience he brought to the book.
Interview with Frank Scozzari
CFFM: Let’s get started with your new book, what can you tell us about THE WIND GUARDIAN?
Frank: ‘The Wind Guardian’ is a story about a terrorist attack on a California nuclear power plant. Though purely fictional, the novel is based on true-to-life Nuclear Regulatory Commission security requirements and “in-use” nuclear reactor cooling systems. It explores weaknesses in security.
As in 9-11, the fictional terrorists in the novel intend to use the technology of great nation against itself by converting a nuclear power plant into the ultimate “dirty bomb” and spreading radiation through the wind.
CFFM: THE WIND GUARDIAN sounds like a thriller, is that how you’d categorize the book?
The Wind Guardian is definitely a Thriller, with elements of romance and crime fiction.
CFFM: What’s the elevator pitch for the book?
Frank: A group of determined terrorists, with the help of an inside man, siege a nuclear power plant with the intent to spread radiation into the wind, only to be foiled by two misfit security guards who left their posts to make love.
CFFM: Your story features terrorism, nuclear power plants and more. How much of your own personal and professional experience have you included in the book?
Frank: I was once employed in the field of nuclear security and also have 20+ years experience in the Justice system. So I have included a great deal of personal experience in this particular novel, especially as it relates to nuclear security, firearms, and police procedures.
CFFM: Thanks for joining us, Frank!
