aka Reagan O'Neal, Jackson O'Reilly

Robert Jordan was born in 1948 in Charleston, South Carolina, in a house built in 1797.

He taught himself to read when he was four with the incidental aid of a twelve-years-older brother, and was tackling Mark Twain and Jules Verne by five. He is a graduate of The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, with a degree in physics. He served two tours in Vietnam with the U.S. Army; among his decorations are the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Bronze Star with "V", and two Vietnamese Crosses of Gallantry.

Sadly, Robert Jordan, aged 58, died on the 16th September 2007.
