Tim Pratt

Author Tim Pratt was born in Goldsboro, North Carolina on December 12, 1976 to a hardworking single mom that was an avid reader, particularly of horror. He spent his summers with his great-grandma, who stocked the guest room of her house with books on the shelves, all science fiction and fantasy.

After he read himself through both of these houses, he started looking for science fiction, horror, and fantasy while on his own. This began a lifelong love affair with the written word, and it wasn’t too long before he tried his hand at telling speculative stories of his own. He began submitting stories to the bigger magazines, most notably F&SF, but others as well, when he was still a teen.

Growing up in a trailer in a rural part of North Carolina allowed for some long walks down the dusty roads to the bus stop, adventures in the close by woods, and navigating through the complexities of the sometimes tough social systems during high school and middle school. It was this freedom to live in his own imagination as he faced some real challenges which gave birth to tales filled with joy and magic without being at all twee, tales that thrummed with danger that never lost their sense of wonder and optimism.

Tim went to Apalachia State University, graduating with honors and a degree in English. He took a writing workshop taught by Orson Scott Card, where his budding talents didn’t go unnoticed. His tales began selling during his early twenties, and by the year 1999 he got accepted in the Clarion Writing Workshop, where he studied in the Clarion Writing Workshop, studying under such esteemed teachers like James Morrow, Karen Joy Fowler, Scott Edelman, Michaela Roessner, and Tim Powers, as well as others. While here, he honed his skills to professional levels and made some lifelong friendships that continue on to this day.

Not too long after Clarion, he followed a childhood friend off to Santa Cruz, California in the year 2000, settling in and loving the gentle cradle of this warm coastal town. This atmosphere, particularly the hours spent writing in the legendary local coffee shop, called Pergolesi, was the source of a lot of inspiration, and serves as the setting for his first novel “The Strange Adventures of Rangergirl”.

Tim is a Hugo Award winning writer, and has been finalist for Sturgeon, World Fantasy, Nebula, Stoker, and Mythopoeic Awards, as well as others.

His work has been reprinted in The Year’s Best Fantasy, The Best New American Short Stories, and The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror, as well as some other nice places.

In 2001, he began working for Locus, the premiere magazine of the science fiction and fantasy field, serving as a senior editor.

He first met his wife, Heather Shaw, on March 17, 2001, at a brunch that she was hosting for Nalo Hopkinson on Strange Horizons’ behalf. At the time, Tim had written four novels, but hadn’t yet published any, but did have some poetry and short fiction published. The first email he sent to Heather was on Carol Emshwiler, and engaged her on literature that they both loved. From there, their missives back and forth got longer and longer.

In the year 2007, after his son River was born, he sat down that same evening and wrote a story called “The River Boy” in the hospital room, so that he could prove to himself that the trials of having a newborn wouldn’t deter him from his writing career.

Tim’s debut novel, called “The Strange Adventures of Rangergirl”, was released in the year 2005. He has also written as T. A. Pratt and T Aaron Payton.

“The Strange Adventures of Rangergirl” is the first stand alone novel and was released in the year 2005. Featuring an exciting heroine who has a secret duty and a hidden talent. This is a contemporary love song to the West that was won and all of the myths which shape us.

Marzi McCarty, as a night manager of Santa Cruz’s quirkiest coffee joint, makes a mean espresso, however her first love is making comic books. Her one claim to fame is The Strange Adventures of Rangergirl, which is a cowpunk neo-western yarn. Striding through the urban frontier peopled by Marzi’s wild imagination, Rangergirl doles out a brand of justice all her own. As of late, however, her imagination appears to be changing her own reality. She is viewing the world through the eyes of Rangergirl, literally, on down to her lethal nemesis, the Outlaw.

It all began when Marzi opened up a hidden door found in the coffeehouse’s storage room. Here, imprisoned among the supplies, she glimpsed a face of something dangerous and unknown. And she knowingly became its guard. However some primal darkness had to have escaped because Marzi has been changed ever since. And neither have any of her customers, who have been acting absolutely apocalyptic.

Now it is all up to Marzi to stop this supervillainous superforce that has swaggered its way on into her life. For Marzi, this is the showdown of her very life, but for Rangergirl, this is just another day.

“The Wrong Stars” is the first novel in the “Axiom” series and was released in the year 2017. One ragtag human and posthuman crew find some alien technology which could alter humanity’s fate. Or awaken some ancient evil and destroy every life in the galaxy.

The sketchy crew of the White Raven run salvage and freight right at the very fringes of our solar system. They find the wreck of this centuries old exploration vessel that floats light years away from its intended destination and revive its only occupant, who wakes up with the news of First Alien Contact.

When the crew break it to her that humanity has some alien allies already, she reveals to them that these are much different than extra-terrestrials. And that the gifts they bestow upon her might kill all of humanity, or possibly take it all out to the most distant of stars.
