The family adventure of a lifetime begins!
Book One of the Epic Steampunk Series, "The Jupiter Chronicles"
It is the year 1892 and Ian and Callie Castillo have had to suffer the hardships of a single parent family since their father went missing five years ago. Since then Ian has refused to use the last gift that his father left the wounded boy; a telescope that sits collecting dust in the attic.
When Callie decides to peer through its murky lens it activates the device and sends the Castillos to the steam-powered floating cities of Jupiter where they discover the secret behind their father's disappearance. But can they uncover the secret behind the Red Spot and save the Jovians before the Martians launch their attack?

Here's an excerpt!
"Callie! What do you think you‟re doing?" Ian shouted. "I told you not to touch that!"
Callie jumped. "Aah! You scared me!"
Ian angrily stomped towards Callie. The telescope started to hum. A second later, it shook. Smoke rushed out from the base of the telescope and the tripod legs collapsed. Ian stared at it in shock, while Callie smiled from ear to ear. The eyepiece then pointed itself towards Callie. A beam of light shot out from the eyepiece directly at Callie and a voice from the base spoke, in a deep voice.
Recognize Castillo, Callista 004The eyepiece then turned to Ian and, after a beam of light
enveloped him, the same voice stated:
Recognize Castillo, Ian 003
The voice spoke one last time.
Prepare for launch.

Leonardo Ramirez is an author of Science Fiction and Fantasy. He is also a husband, a father and a Karate instructor with a 4th degree black belt. His first graphic novel, Haven of Dante, is a supernatural Young Adult story centered on an ancient war between the Dante family and the nine circles of hell. Haven of Dante: The Staff of Moshe takes readers much deeper into the world of the family line with a prologue that begins with the plight of Dante Alighieri himself!
His follow up is a mid grade Science Fiction book called The Jupiter Chronicles: The Secret of the Great Red Spot. It follows the adventure of two children as they are transported to the steam-powered cities of Jupiter, find their long-lost father and stop an attack from Mars.
My heart and motive have always been for people who are hurting. These can be kids who have had to suffer through child abuse or neglect or an absent parent which can be equally torturous as was the case in The Jupiter Chronicles. It can also be young girls who have suffered an assault like Haven did in Haven of Dante. Young or old it doesn't matter. Those are the kids and adults I want to speak to because I've been there.It's not just Science Fiction.
It's Science Fiction for the Human Condition.
Leonardo Ramirez lives with his wife Kristen, their daughter Mackenzy and their two dogs, Duchess and Tinkerbell in Nolensville, Tennessee.
