Signal Fire Studios is the brainchild of Jamie Chambers, Digger Hayes, and Joie Brown. Individually they represent years of writing, game design, illustration, and graphic design experience. Together they make a mighty team that can put out online and print products that combine great content with kick-ass presentation. We want our products to be fun to read and a blast to play!
Jamie Chambers grew up in north Georgia and has come full circle after freezing his posterior off for nine years in Wisconsin in order to study at the feet of the old greats of the hobby games industry . When not writing long, run-on sentences, he is working on his latest game and fiction projects. He lives in north Georgia.
Jamie has written games and fiction for Wizards of the Coast and other companies. He currently serves as Vice President on the board of directors for GAMA (Game Manufacturers Association) and is part of the eclectic group of writers, game designers, and poets known as the Alliterates.

Digger Hayes was destined to be a great athlete, with early triumphs on the basketball court and track field. But these dreams were smashed to pieces when Jamie Chambers walked into his life, introducing him to tabletop gaming, scifi movies, and other geeky pursuits. With his early ambitions destroyed, Digger decided to pursue his sedentary talents of print layout and graphic design-which he does in-between World of Warcraft guild raids.
Joie is a San Francisco illustrator who specializes in visual development for animation. She particularly loves character design, storyboarding, and layout. She also loves helping create fun games by drawing pretty pictures and keeping the Signal Fire boys in line and on task. In her spare time she dances ballet, plays video, board, and card games, eats cupcakes, and plays with her infamous corgi, Rylee.
