Tim Pratt has helped me greatly the past couple of years. His advice, guidance, and encouragement have assisted me more than a simple thank you could repay. The author of the Marla Mason series, Tim has captured a devout audience. He mailed me an autographed copy of the novel Blood Engines, which to this day I have read countless times. The generosity to his fans depicts the kindness of the man, who is married with a baby.
Unbearable circumstances have befallen Tim Pratt. His son suffers from congenital glaucoma, and his wife was recently laid off at her job. Now, his family is relying on his wonderful story telling capabilities to keep a roof over their head, and to keep up with their son’s medical needs.
What can you do? There is a free novel from T.A. Pratt available online that follows Marla Mason’s early adventures. The site also contains an option for donations to Tim Pratt’s cause. My heart goes out to this man and his family, and with the support of fellow writers, I hope that we can help him in this time of need.
I’m a writer, and if there’s one thing I have in ample quantity, it’s stories to tell.
