Jamie Chambers was born in Atlanta and grew up running around barefoot in the pine forests and kudzu fields of north Georgia. The son of a Trekkie and an early D&D player, Jamie was doomed early to a life of geeky pursuits. He began playing role playing games at the age of seven and writing his own fiction at eight.

He spent his youth reading fantasy and science fiction, reading comic books, watching cartoons, and playing any game he could get his hands on — video games, board games, card games, and especially role playing games such as Dungeons & Dragons. Eventually he became an online volunteer for TSR, Inc. while the Internet was in its infancy and became involved with the RPGA (Role Playing Game Association) as a club president and convention coordinator.

After a lifetime of creating (and playing) games and writing (and reading) stories, Jamie has launched Signal Fire Studios LLC, creating game and entertainment products. He's had stories, game products, and articles published by many companies and is pursuing creative writing projects for publication. Jamie currently serves as Vice President on the board of directors for GAMA (Game Manufacturers Association), the trade organization for the hobby games industry that also hosts an annual trade show in Las Vegas as the Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio.

After nearly a decade in Wisconsin, Jamie has returned to north Georgia.
