About Author Kyle Pratt
Thank you for visiting the website of Author Kyle Pratt. Kyle writes both post-apocalyptic and speculative science fiction novels, novellas and short stories.
Through Many Fires, the first book in his post-apocalyptic Strengthen What Remains series came out in paperback, Kindle and on Audible in August 2013. Within two weeks the novel appeared on the Kindle Science Fiction Post-Apocalyptic list, reaching #10, and reached #1 on the list on December 2, 2014. The second book in the series, A Time to Endure, reached the number one position on the Amazon Kindle war fiction genre list just over a month after release and then again in January of 2016. At the same time Braving the Storms reached the number eight spot.
Kyle grew up in the mountains of Colorado and earned an Associate in Arts degree from Mesa State College in Grand Junction. When money for college ran low he enlisted in the United States Navy as a Cryptologic Technician. "I thought I would do four years and then use my veteran's benefits to go back to college," he once said.
His first assignment was with a U.S. Navy unit at the Royal Air Force base in Edzell, Scotland. While on leave in Israel he met Lorraine from Plymouth, Devon, England and married her the next year. Together they spent the remainder of his twenty-year naval career traveling across the United States from Virginia to Hawaii and on to Guam, Japan and beyond.
Even before he retired from the U.S. Navy he wrote short stories. In July of 2012 his debut novel, Titan Encounter, a science fiction space adventure, came out on Kindle and later in paperback. His second book, Final Duty - The Speculative Fiction Anthology, was released in January of 2013.
Kyle is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and Oregon Christian Writers.
Today, Kyle and his wife Lorraine live on a small family farm in Western Washington State where he repairs gates, tends bees, blogs about the future of publishing, and continues to write science fiction and post-apocalyptic adventure novels.
