A 25 YEAR ANNIVERSARY means a lot to me!

25 years ago I submitted a manuscript titled, THE LAST VALENTINE to several literary agents. I was in a hospital bed recovering from a near-death bleeding event described in the audio at the "ABOUT" page at this website.  This was the second time this had happened in two years.  In fact, I used the experience of what it is like to be dying from stomach wounds to describe our hero's final hours at the end of the story. 


I share this for a reason, and it is profound; at least to me. Had I not gone through what I did, the pain and years of physical suffering too, I would not have become a published author. I would not have written THE LAST VALENTINE or 10 additional books, with more on the way. 

My condition was near fatal. I didn't expect to live long enough to see a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie starring Betty White -- The Lost Valentine -- made from my first novel, The Last Valentine in 2011. I didn't expect to make it to 2022. But here I am, healthier, alive, and still writing.  


And I did something I also had not planned for...


...I bought a bunch of ORIGINAL HARDCOVERS each time one was published. Then, instead of selling them, I stored them for some future date.  I just never got around to offering them to fans and collectors until now.  I guess I was just too tired to care.


So I am offering the original copy of THE LAST VALENTINE sold in hardcover 25 years ago, at the original price then, when you purchase the set of 4 love & war romance stories published by St. Martin's Press. All 4 for just $99.95!  


But hurry... The sale is limited to just 100 sets, then all remaining hardcovers will be subject to the individual listed price. 


That's 4 Autographed Collector Editions -- Out-of-Print Hardcovers at 1998 prices!   


A $150.00 Savings!

Here's What You Get:


THE CHRIST REPORT -  a novel never before sold in stores and my witness of the most important events in world history: the birth, crucifixtion, and resurrection of the Biblical Jesus of Nazareth told from the perspective of a sophisticated New York City talk show host;  who does not know he left the present day during surgery. And the important perspectives of two men from 33 AD; a powerful Roman Centurion and secret follower, and the other the most vilified Inn Keeper of all time, now determined to make amends and clear his name through someone with a powerful enough voice to reach a world audience.  What happens when the three meet and span the bridge of 2000 years in time? It all becomes clear in THE CHRIST REPORT!


AS a MAN THINKETH... In His Heart, is a personal growth and motivational category novel never before promoted or sold in stores or libraries! Featuring the author as the main character and his discoveries in the ghost-like seaside village of Ilfracombe, England – where real author, James Allen (1902) wrote his mega-million bestseller, “As a Man Thinketh.


This ethereal tale of a visit to another time and place is Pratt's tribute to the style of "author as a narrating character" in the beloved fiction of bestseller Og Mandino and his many inspirational titles selling millions of copies worldwide for the past sixty years: including The Greatest Secret & The Christ Commission, and The Greatest Salesman in the World


It is also a partnering with a ghost from the early 1900's for the author.  James Allen and his classic self-improvement book helped change Pratt's life at age 19.  Will you take a chance on ghosts from the past who care enough to return to the present with secrets and message of inspiration just for you?  With this novel comes James Allen's original book As a Man Thinketh, FREE!  While supplies last!

Thanks MOM!


DAD, The Man Who Lied to Save the Planet He lied to get into the World War Two fight, not to run from it.  12 timeless lessons based on the author’s memories of growing up in Southern California during simpler times and the common-sense truths taught by an ordinary Dad who raised 9 children during the post-World War Two decades.
