Mark R. Healy
BioMark R. Healy is the Bestselling author of the ‘Distant Suns’ series and to date has published nine novels. He lives in Brisbane, Australia.
Mark has been writing stories for as long as he can remember. In the early days he assembled his own illustrated books with accompanying stories and forced his parents to buy them. Unfortunately this model was not scalable, so in later years he has sought to promote his works to a wider audience.
He loves nothing more than to surprise readers, and, as a result, there are always twists and turns in each of his novels. He also endeavours to reach readers on an emotional level, by crafting complex characters that have real and believable relationships with each other. All of this is set against immersive, fully-realised sci-fi worlds that lend authenticity to the experience.
It is Mark’s goal to write stories that stay with the reader long after they have turned the last page.
