Rex Jameson is the USA Today Bestselling author of the Primal Patterns series, the Age of Magic series, and half a dozen short stories. His latest novel The People’s Necromancer is being released exclusively in the limited edition Wrath and Ruin box set until April 2018. After that, The People’s Necromancer with additional content and The Dark Paladin (the 2nd book in the Age of Magic series) will be released in 2018.

An avid history buff and an unabashed nerd with an appetite for science fiction and fantasy, he loves to create complex speculative fiction with layered characters. He earned a PhD in Computer Science at Vanderbilt University and researches distributed artificial intelligence in robotics at Carnegie Mellon University. Rex and his wife Jenny live in Pittsburgh where they enjoy hosting family and friends.


Rex was born in Alabama and raised in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee where he attended public school through high school. He graduated high school in 1999 and attended college in Computer Science for a year before joining a software startup across the country. His first novel Lucifer’s Odyssey began early drafting during his time in the frozen tundra of Minnesota as he struggled with religion, spirituality, and technology.

Rex moved back to Tennessee in the mid 2000s and enrolled at Middle Tennessee State University to complete his Computer Science degree with focuses in operating systems and artificial intelligence. He joined Vanderbilt University for his Masters and PhD and graduated with the same focus areas in 2012. Before completing his PhD, he published two novels–Lucifer’s Odyssey and The Goblin Rebellion. He joined the research staff at Carnegie Mellon University, a top institution for artificial intelligence and computer science.

Much of his writing reflects his research into distributed artificial intelligence, middleware, operating systems, formal methods and emergent behavior. As an academic, he is published in conferences and journals, is a frequent program committee member of top conferences in AI, and has been interviewed and his work in AI has received thousands of views on Youtube.
