Rex Ogle was born and raised mostly in Texas. He received the 2020 YALSA Excellence in Nonfiction Award for his memoir Free Lunch.
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, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. But writing for himself was always the ultimate goal.
He’s written under a lot of pen names, most notably Trey King, Honest Lee, and Rey Terceiro (which is just Español for “third king”, which is apt since Rex is Latin for “king”, and Rex is the third “Rex” in his family). Now, he lives in Los Angeles where he writes full-time—when he’s not outside hiking with his dog Toby, playing MarioKart with friends (and losing terribly), or reading.
We, at Catlin Gabel Middle School, are excited host author Rex Ogle. Rex will present to the Middle School at Assembly on Wednesday, May 19th via Zoom. Rex's presentation will include stories from his award winning memoir, Free Lunch.
