T.A. Pratt is the pseudonym of Tim Pratt, under which he penned the Marla Mason books.

I've crowdfunded seven projects (four through Kickstarter) successfully in the past few years, and I don't foresee any problems with this one, either. I write novels for a living, and this is a book I'm excited to do. It's always possible there will be bumps and delays on the production process, or an unforeseen illness or other disaster, but if so, I'll keep everyone posted, and we'll get there in the end.

“You didn’t always have to be more powerful. Sometimes you just had to refuse to lose.”
T.A. Pratt, Grim Tides

“I couldn’t do it. Be a monster hunter on purpose. I’d never stop hyperventilating. Like, when do you have time to make comic books?” “My proclivities are prob’ly indicative of some profound underlying psychological damage,” the Stranger said. “But I reckon you play the hand the dealer gives you.”
T.A. Pratt, Lady of Misrule

“And if you decide you don’t want to speak English anymore, we can take turns making comical animal noises at each other.”
T.A. Pratt, Blood Engines
