“Punch as hard as you can. Drive them into the corner and don’t let up.” IN DISCUSSION WITH… BERNARD SCHAFFER

Today I’m in discussion with Bernard Schaffer. I’ve known Bernard for a long time, and we’ve collaborated with each other, and edited each other’s work for years. Not only is Bernard an author, he is a full-time police detective, and father of two kids.

A career spanning twenty years has seen him become a decorated criminal investigator, narcotics expert and child forensic interviewer. Since I have known him, Bernard has been a formidable champion of independent publishing. His experience working the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA is present in much of his work.

It’s that real-life experience that makes his novel, The Thief Of All Light, so vivid and realistic (it’s released by Kensington Publications in Summer 2018). I was fortunate enough to be a beta (and early editor) on that book, and can tell you that it’s no surprise to me that Kensington wanted to publish it. Not only that, but they signed Bernard for a sequel, too. I’ve always been a fan of his work, but The Thief Of All Light is truly his best yet.

I recently had the pleasure of chatting with author Harry Hunsicker! I met Harry briefly last year in LA, while we were both filming our Kindle Most Wanted segments. Harry is the former executive vice-president of the Mystery Writers of America. His work has been short-listed for both the Shamus and Thriller Awards and his story “West of Nowhere,” was selected for inclusion in The Best American Mystery Stories 2011. His latest novel is THE DEVIL’S COUNTRY, and it’s one helluva book.

You can now order SIGNED EDITIONS of Hope’s Peak and Storm’s Edge

I’ve thought about doing this for awhile, and just recently got around to setting it up. I get requests, from time to time, for signed paperbacks. The easiest way for me to offer these for sale is through paypal, but WordPress don’t allow you to attach a Buy It Now to your site, so I’ve had to do so using BlogSpot.

If you’d like to order a signed edition, made out to whoever you like, just follow this link: http://tonyleehealeyblog.blogspot.co.uk/p/blog-page.html

I will personally sign, package and ship each and every order. If you want a signed copy of either of these novels, this is the hassle-free way to do it. Who knows, maybe they will make a great gift for someone . . .


Storm’s Edge, the sequel to my bestselling novel Hope’s Peak, is ready.

Thing is, it doesn’t come out until October. But don’t despair! I have been authorized by my publisher, Thomas and Mercer, to give readers a direct link to Storm’s Edge on Netgalley.

All you have to do is email me tonyleehealey at gmail dot com; message me here; reach out to me through Twitter or Facebook. However you want. I will then send you the link to the Netgalley page, where you can download it.

This is a unique opportunity to read my latest novel, a full 5 months before release.

So what are you waiting for? Hit me up!
