Born May 27th, 1969 in Oakland California, Jaime always knew he wanted to entertain through stories. From campfire jaunts to comic books, most of his life centered around youth and crafting adventures that would cause one to stop and consider their own life and potential. At the height of his comic book production, he had readers in 60 countries and ran a message board with 29,000 registered users–creating instructional podcasts and interacting with 15K youth each week.
His goal? Encouraging youth to reach for their dreams.
When a car accident damaged his hands and took away his ability to draw, his wife and daughter encouraged Jaime to try his hand at being a novelist, instead. For years he resisted, feeling his talent was limited to cartooning.
“I would never have started writing if it wasn’t for Kathi and Cesilea,” said the Author in an interview, “People don’t realize the power of a loving family and persistent encouragement can have on someone who’s lost hope in fulfilling a dream. All I’ve ever wanted is to uplift and encourage others through epic adventures…set in a world that readers would become addicted to.
“I want to craft stories that make you stop and look inside…without noticing it ever happened.”
In 2010, Jaime dusted off nearly twenty years of world creation notes…with the full determination to build the full Wanted Hero Universe. He’s never looked back.
Over time, Jaime’s had encouragement from many famous professionals, but his joy comes in the response from readers themselves. Those who only know him through his stories:
“I must dedicate part of this review to the author, Jaime Buckley. This guy is a genious. The effort and heart he has obviously put into his work, the characters and this world is mind-blowing. Although he claims to be ‘just a boring human’, this is defintely not the case. His imagination is amazing, so it’s little wonder that I enjoy his work so much.” –Books That Spark, UK
“The writing in Prelude to a Hero was incredible. The narrating and inner thoughts of Wendell (the main character) were really amusing. You know that awkward guy who never tries to be funny, but everything he does and says just becomes hilarious? Wendell is that person.” — Magical Book, Sweden
“You know a book is good when you develop strong feelings and relationships with it’s characters right from the start. I loved and even hated a few of the characters as soon as I met them. I was sucked into the story’s totally new universe and, like Wendal, I simply couldn’t escape.” — Uptill2.A.M. (Goodreads member)
