Jason Fry I’m the author of The Jupiter Pirates space-fantasy saga for young adults, published by HarperCollins. The series begins with The Jupiter Pirates: Hunt for the Hydra, then continues with Curse of the Iris. The third novel, The Rise of Earth, is on the way … with more to come. The Jupiter Pirates is part high-seas adventure and part space-age epic — a saga about a solar system on the brink of war and one family caught in the middle of it. It’s technically a middle-grade book (for ages 8 to 12) but I promise older readers will like it too.
