Imagine going around the world under the sea onboard the world's most advanced submarine. It sounds like "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea," but it really happened. In this dramatic true story, an American nuclear submarine captain announces to his new, untested crew that their maiden voyage is now a far more dangerous top-secret mission - to make the first submerged circumnavigation of the Earth.

Author Bio: By profession, Marc DeLamater has been a technical writer at such companies as Reed Business Data, Nortel Networks, MCI WorldCom, UPS, AREVA NP, General Electric, IBM Internet Security Systems, ACS, and Xerox. Significantly, I was also a technical writer at the Electric Boat Division of General Dynamics, the shipyard that built the USS Triton.

However, his avocation is to become a screenwriter. Mr. DeLamater has taken a number of screenplay writing seminars conducted by such industry-recognized individuals as Syd Field, Linda Segar, Michael Hauge, Michael A. Simpson, and Carl Sautter, Hal Croasmun, and Michael Elliot; and sponsored by such organizations as the American Film Institute, Georgia State University, IMAGE Film and Video, and ScreenwritingU.

TRITON has been reviewed by the U.S. Navy’s Office of Information in Los Angeles, California, and has received a letter of initial interest from that office regarding future cooperation and support from the Navy and the U.S. Department of Defense.
