About Author Kyle Pratt
Thank you for visiting my website. My name is Kyle Pratt and I write post-apocalyptic, science fiction and speculative fiction novels, novellas and short stories.
Through Many Fires, the first book in my bestselling 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.
I 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 I enlisted in the United States Navy as a Cryptologic Technician. I planned to do four years and then use my veteran's benefits to go back to college, but life often doesn’t go the way we plan.
My first assignment was with a U.S. Navy unit at the Royal Air Force base in Edzell, Scotland. While on leave in Israel I met Lorraine from Plymouth, Devon, England and married her the next year. Together we spent the remainder of my twenty-year naval career traveling across the United States from Virginia to Hawaii and on to Guam, Japan and beyond.
Even before I retired from the U.S. Navy I wrote short stories. In July of 2012 my debut novel, Titan Encounter, a science fiction space adventure, came out on Kindle and later in paperback. My second book, Final Duty was released in January of 2013.
Today, Lorraine and I live on a small family farm in Western Washington State. Rural life keeps me busy. After my writing is done, I repair gates and fences, tends bees and chickens and walk in the woods.
