Introducing Essel Pratt!

Hard at work in our old call center

Before I start posting articles on, I thought I would introduce myself and possibly get some feedback about what the readers want to see.

My Pen Name is Essel Pratt and I live in North Central Indiana.  I have been married to a beautiful woman for fourteen years!  I have a step Son and two daughters.  Our family also includes a Siberian Husky/Shephard mix named Ripley, a Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix named Delylah, two cats named Spike and Sakima, and finally a hedgehog named Marceline.

During my day job, I work for a small company located right across from the Notre Dame Campus.  I am an Office Manager/Call Center Manager/Billing Manager/HR Manager.  As you can see I wear many hats, and am always busy!  I also run a facebook group called THE ZONE which is a place for people to meet up and talk about whatever is on their mind.  We only have around 130 members so far, but some great friendships have already been developed.  There have also been great support to help people with various life issues. I have been writing for since about mid October and was just invited to start writing here too!

Since I received my first Nintendo in the late 80’s I have been hooked on video games!  I remember my first big gaming accomplishment, I beat Super Mario Brothers eleven times in a row without warp pipes or losing a life!  I only stopped out of sheer boredom.  I have owned many game systems over the years but I always reminisce back to the NES.  Some of my favorite games are Mario Bros, Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Dragon Warrior, Zelda, and I have a soft spot for Milon’s Secret Castle.

Although I love contributing posts, I would love to publish a series of novels that are floating through my brain.  Each is interconnected in a weird way.  In my head they are already written, now if I could only put the stories in writing.  Maybe some day I will find the time.

I look forward to posting here in Infendo and hearing your feedback and discussions.
