Erik A. Dewey was born in St. Petersburg Florida and lived there about two weeks before being whisked off to the coast of Maine. He spent some time living in Massachusetts and Rhode Island before leaving New England to live in Oklahoma. He graduated from the University of Tulsa with a B.S. in Marketing and from Southern Nazarene University with an MBA.

The first publication of his work was in Hilti Today, a magazine from where his father worked, at the early age of 10. He continued to write off and on and began submitting his work for publication during college. He has written or contributed to ten books, twenty magazine articles, and is a popular reviewer of games. He is particularly fond of the work he did for the Star Wars line of games. Some of his books have sold internationally and he occasionally gets fan mail from across the globe.

He met his beautiful and talented wife at a court-ordered Defensive Driving class and has a precious daughter and a beloved son. He has a closet full of board games (most of them in English) and loves nothing more than to invite company over for an evening of dinner and game play.

Family strength and identity are important to Erik and he is a big proponent of family game play and adventures as a way to build that unity and strength. Focusing on the family unit as a whole builds strong bonds between family members that enhance the happy times and bring strength in the trying times.
