Ernest Cline

Ernest Cline has worked as a short-order cook, fish gutter, plasma donor, elitist video store clerk, and tech support drone. His primary occupation, however, has always been geeking out, and he eventually threw aside those other promising career paths to express his love of pop culture fulltime as a spoken word artist and screenwriter. His 2009 film, Fanboys, much to his surprise, became a cult phenomenon. These days Mr. Cline lives in Austin, Texas with his wife, their daughter, and a large collection of classic video games. Ready Player One is his first novel.
