Rex Ogle was born and raised (mostly) in Texas. He moved to New York City after college to pursue an editorial career, interning at Marvel Comics before working at DC Comics, and later at Scholastic and Little Brown Young Readers. He championed over a dozen NY Times Bestsellers on major brands such as X-Men, Justice League, Star Wars, LEGO, Power Rangers, Transformers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Neil Patrick Harris’s Magic Misfits. Rex loves to talk about these books as well as video games (he loves MarioKart!), TV, and movies.
Having written under a lot of pen names (like Trey King and Honest Lee), Rex’s favorite is the pseudonym Rey Terceiro–the author of Meg, Jo, Beth, & Amy, and Swan Lake: Quest for the Kingdoms. Under his own name, he is the author of dozens of comics, as well as prose memoirs, Free Lunch (recipient of multiple starred reviews, listed as a Best Book of 2019 by Amazon, Kirkus, and Chicago Public Library, and the winner of the YALSA Award for Excellence in Non-Fiction), and Punching Bag. He also wrote middle grade fantasy The Supernatural Society, and has over a dozen books coming out in the next few years.
Rex is able and willing to discuss everything from tv to movies, music to videogames (especially MarioKart!), and comics to books, all with honesty and candor. He writes memoirs, prose, free verse, and graphic novels, and is happy to offer pointers and tips to students and teachers alike.
