Tony Healey

Tony Healey is the bestselling author of the Far From Home series. He has written alongside such award-winning authors as Alan Dean Foster and Harlan Ellison.

Healey is currently working on book two of his Harper & Lane series, of which Hope’s Peak is the first installment. He lives with his wife and four daughters in Sussex, England.

Recently I asked the author about what he was reading. Healey's reply:
What I read depends on my mood. I read Bruce Springsteen's autobiography, Born To Run, over the festive period and once I'd finished that, I felt like reading something with a mystery element, maybe a little murder, so I chose The Devil's Country by Harry Hunsicker. I don't like to be bored, and long stretches of text where little-to-nothing happens send me to sleep. That's not the case here.

The Devil's Country is a real page turner, and tightly written. Hunsicker has several plot elements at play, and does a fantastic job of juggling them all at once. He does so in such a way that you genuinely don't know where the novel is headed next. I'm fascinated by the way Hunsicker treats the story of The Devil's Country. You feel like you're travelling in a dust storm, unable to see more than a few feet in front of you. The author is your only guide; and he has no plans to reveal the secrets beneath the surface of The Devil's Country anytime soon. You can't anticipate the turns and dead-ends. All you can do is go along for the ride—and what a ride so far. I'm just gonna close my eyes and let the road take me.
