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.
Here Healey dreamcasts an adaptation of Hope's Peak:
When I was writing Hope's Peak, I only had one actress in mind for the main character of Jane Harper. Anna Torv really wowed me in Fringe, playing Olivia Dunham. She has swagger, and confidence, but is really able to portray true emotion, and is a joy to watch.Visit Tony Healey's website, Facebook page, and Twitter perch.
For the serial killer, Lester Simmons, I always pictured Tom Noonan. Mr. Noonan is frightening enough anyway. He has such presence as an actor. With a little prosthetic trickery, he'd make a perfect Lester.
I pictured Samira Wiley as the broken, gifted Ida. She was so fantastic in Orange Is The New Black. Watching her, you can see so much going on beneath the surface. So many layers to her performance. I think she would find a lot to work with in the role of Ida.
