JD Wiker is an Indianapolis native who has been professionally designing games since 1995. He joined the game industry in 1994 as a Customer Service representative for Wizards of the Coast, where he acted as Wizards' official company netrep on America Online. At the same time, JD designed material for the Ars Magica Roleplaying Game and Vampire: Dark Ages. His experience led to a change in jobs in 1998, when, after Wizards of the Coast had acquired TSR, Inc., the roleplaying game team at Wizards hired JD to write for the fledgling Alternity line, including the Dark*Matter Campaign Setting.
In late 1999, JD began work on Wizards of the Coast's Star Wars Roleplaying Game, and he became the primary Star Wars RPG designer until he left Wizards of the Coast in 2002, collaborating on Secrets of Naboo, Secrets of Tatooine, The Dark Side Sourcebook, The New Jedi Order Sourcebook, and The Power of the Jedi Sourcebook.
In 2008, Wiker married Keri Reynolds (sister of Sean K Reynolds). He now lives in the Seattle area. Wiker continues to freelance in the tabletop industry while working for video game design company En Masse Entertainment.
