Oh... excuse me. Ian THOMAS Healy. That's what you get for inviting your friends around... you mess up their name because they don't always use all of it. Erm.
[And INSPIRING to the Insecure Writer-eh? Look at the perseverence here...]
I've read one of his novels and one of his shorts and can tell you his style is fantastic. He is funny and whimsical, but still has a great plot and realistic characters woven in—there is a fair trick to that. (the book I read was about a troop of Vampires trying to take over the Canadian Hockey League... seriously—and it was GREAT—Blood on the Ice for those of you interested)
So I am welcoming Ian today to give a little promo for his latest book and share a little of his wisdom with you. Without further ado, Welcome Ian!
The Book of Firsts
Ian Thomas Healy's goal is to be to superhero fiction what Anne Rice is to urban fantasy and William Gibson is to cyberpunk. When not writing, which is rare, he enjoys watching hockey, reading comic books (and serious books, too), and living in the great state of Colorado, which he shares with his wife Richelle, his children Patrick, Caitlin, and Zachary, house-pets Smokey, Samwise, Morrigan, Isis, and approximately five million other people.

His backlist is available in ebook format on Smashwords, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and all other ebook retailers.
JUST CAUSE back cover copy
Some superheroes can fly, or lift great weights, or shoot lightning bolts.
Mustang Sally runs.
A third-generation superhero, Sally's life changes forever when she fights and loses to the notorious villain Destroyer, who killed her father just before she was born. She dedicates herself to tracking him down so she can even the score.
When all you can do is run, you'd better be fast, but can even the fastest girl in the world run quick enough to save her teammates' lives from Destroyer and his growing parahuman army?
