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.

This is a strong story, filled with action, that's over entirely too quickly... then again, that's the whole premise. Wonderfully done.

No one can capture action quite like Ian Healy, and he's at the top of his game with this short story about a young hero with super speed running a streak across the Bonneville Salt Flats to break the sound barrier. In fact, he does such a good job of putting the reader in Mustang Sally's shoes that you might want to wear goggles to protect your eyes from the flying grit.
