I LOVE IAN THOMAS HEALY! If you wanna see an interview he did with me, Cody May, and the Colorado Author Interview Circle, bam, click it, baby, click it.
I was so excited when he agreed to write a story set in the world of The Juniper Wars series. If you like sky pirates, well, we have ’em. Ian wrote a story called “The Leash” and it is sky pirate awesome!

A young boy dreams of adventure away from the dreariness of ranch life. But in the Juniper, such dreams have a dangerous way of coming true. Especially when sky pirates are involved.
Ian Thomas Healy has crafted a steampunk adventure and set it firmly in the world of The Juniper Wars where classic zeppelin battles have a gritty Mad Max edge.

Mustang Sally has some speedy shoes to fill. This young superhero has waited her whole life to join Just Cause – the premiere team of American heroes. Now she’s hoping her super-speed will earn a spot on the same team to which her parents and grandparents belonged.
A chance encounter with the villain who killed her father changes everything. Even though she’s only an intern, Sally devotes herself to finding the man known as Destroyer. With the help of her eagle-winged best friend Sondra and her super-strong love interest Jason, her investigations uncover a sinister plot stretching all the way back to her grandparents’ era. Sally and Just Cause must risk everything to halt Destroyer’s plans and save the entire world.
Praise for Just Cause
“Just Cause is a pure delight from cover to cover . . . It is a most welcomed addition to our library and we recommend it highly. If you grew up with your nose buried in Marvel and DC comics, as we did, then you are going to love “Just Cause.” And as Mr. Stan Lee would say, “Nuff said.”
—Ron Fortier, Airship 27
”Ian Healy’s Just Cause really raised the bar to me of how good superhero prose fiction can be.”
—Scott A. Story, creator of Johnny Saturn
“Snatch this one up and devour it, boys and girls. Enter into the Just Cause Universe and you’ll find yourself wanting to stay just a little bit longer. That’s perfectly fine. There are more books.”
—Tim McCurley, creator of Firedrake
