About BeyondTheDark

Writer, Director, Producer, Audio Engineer

Mark R. Healy


I have ten full length novels in publication, both self and trad-pub, as well as a number of short stories.  I have reached Amazon Bestseller status in the sci-fi category.


'The Strata' is a sci-fi audio drama released in 2021. In a dystopian city, an ageing courier is forced to go into business with an underworld ganglord in order to pay for the treatment that keeps him alive.

'Beyond the Dark' is an audio drama anthology released in 2020 that features sci-fi, horror and post-apocalyptic themes accompanied by original soundtracks.

My audio project 'Hibernal' was established in 2013, and combines original audio dramas with music to create concept album/audiobook hybrids.

    It was an absolute pleasure working with Mark on the Beyond the Dark series. His production value on previous episodes is what drew me to the audition for Bones. Great writing, direction, and quick response times. Thanks again for the opportunity!

    Beyond the Dark's Mark R. Healy is an amazing writer and a great director. I had the honor of voicing one of his characters and he was organized, patient, and accommodating. I enjoyed my experience working with him and look forward to seeing what else this great talent creates.

    Working with Mark has been great! Aside from his obvious talent - seriously, listen to his podcast - he's organized, very sure of his vision, and a prolific creator. He also works with you on timelines and is very communicative. I get excited any time I see a Beyond the Dark casting call because it's another opportunity to be part of a great project with an incredibly capable showrunner.

    Mark is an absolute legend! I've been lucky enough to work with him on the Beyond the Dark series and it's been a wonderful experience. He's an excellent writer, and his work always gives you something exciting to sink your teeth into as an actor -- no matter the line count. He's also an organized and courteous employer, setting out clear expectations and deadlines from the start, and ensuring you're paid on time. He is a consumate professional, wonderful talent, and all-round lovely guy.

    I played a small character in an episode of an ongoing podcast produced by Mark. He is very easy to work with, and knows what he wants for his characters. I look forward to working with him again on future projects if given the opportunity.

    Mark was incredibly friendly, professional, and prompt in all correspondence. And the quality of the writing provided was also top tier! This is a person who "gets it." I'd definitely love to work with them again in the future and would recommend Beyond the Dark projects to any creative.
