Tyler Jae Gamba is a graduate of the Rutgers University – New Brunswick Creative Writing program, where he began work on what would become the world of Redsky, a science fantasy extended universe that has gone from dorm room idea to rising international presence. Through Rutgers, Tyler participated in workshops and special event masterclasses with writers including Lev Grossman, Dave Rudden, Alex Dawson, Mark Doty, Tracy K. Smith, and George Saunders. He has performed his work at venues in Scotland and Ireland as well as the United States.
Tyler co-founded Solar Studios with the team to explore Redsky through a young-adult novel trilogy and the team’s flagship tabletop roleplaying conversion. He is currently exploring strategies to publish the trilogy through traditional or independent means, with the goal of a long-term pipeline of Redsky experiences for the expanding community. His first novel Arise has been released in an advanced early access preview to 1100 Kickstarter backers. Book two is nearing draft completion. Book three is estimated to be fully drafted in 2022.
Tyler lives in Clifton, New Jersey with a mountain of nerdy old books and a very grumpy shih-tsu named Oreo, who is leveraging Tyler’s work to acquire more chicken.
