About Ian Thomas Healy

Ian Thomas Healy is a prolific writer who dabbles in many different speculative genres. He’s a ten-time participant and winner of National Novel Writing Month where he’s tackled such diverse subjects as sentient alien farts, competitive forklift racing, a religion-powered rabbit-themed superhero, cyberpunk mercenaries, cowboy elves, and an unlikely combination of vampires with minor league hockey. He is also the creator of the Writing Better Action Through Cinematic Techniques workshop, which helps writers to improve their action scenes.

Ian also created the longest-running superhero webcomic done in LEGO, The Adventures of the S-Team, which ran from 2006-2012.

When not writing, which is rare, he enjoys watching hockey, reading comic books (and serious books, too), and living in the great state of Colorado, which he shares with his wife, children, house-pets, and approximately five million other people.

Review by: Byron Paul on Aug. 31, 2012 :
good solid story, with an interesting and unexpected ending, although the story somehow didn't completely capture me. I did make me go brush my teeth after reading. Worth a read though if you are considering this one, still better than much of the shorts on smashwords.

Review by: Chris Armstrong on March 25, 2012 :
We all seem to have this primal fear when it comes to losing a tooth. Is it instinctual? Evolutionary? Regardless, Ian gets to the very root (hehe) of this fear with "Dental Plan." It made me empathize with the rather smarmy narrator, which I didn't want to do, and a few times I resisted the urge to reach for my own teeth to ensure they were still securely in place. The action and suspense build nicely, and at the end, it left me sufficiently creeped out and fascinated by what had just transpired. A worthy read!
