Tag Line Bio
Kyle Pratt is the award-winning Amazon bestselling author of Through Many Fires, Seekers of Earth, Through the Storm, and many other novels, novellas and short stories. He lives with his wife of over forty years on a small farm in southwest Washington State.
“I thought I would do four years and then use my veteran's benefits to go back to college,” he told himself at the time. “Life often doesn’t go the way we plan.”
Kyle’s 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 and on Audible. His second book, Final Duty was released in January of 2013, and later released on Audible.
Kyle is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers, Oregon Christian Writers and is on the board of the Lewis County Writers Guild. He has been a judge for the Oregon Christian Writers Cascade Award and principal organizer of the Southwest Washington Writers Conference during its first five years.
Today, Kyle and his wife Lorraine live on a small family farm in Western Washington State. When he isn't writing he repairs gates and fences, tends bees and chickens and blogs anything that comes to his mind.
