Author, Illustrator, Creator of the Universe (the Wanted Hero Universe that is...)
I’ve always wanted to do something famous. Never wanted to BE famous, mind you…just DO something famous.
Well that…and marry the prettiest girl in the world.
So after I found her, wooed her with my irresistible charm and married her, I got back to searching for that ‘famous’ thing to do.
It wasn’t until after I’d become a grandfather that my children explained, “You’ve been doing it all along.”
I’ve earned the titles of Author, Illustrator, Cartoonist, Game Designer, Dragon Lord, King Maker, Monster Hunter, Sliver Slayer, Trainer of Heroes, Breaker of Bridges, Smoker of Meats, Sucker of Slurpees, World Builder and Elf Friend(ish). I’ve also been known as Dad, Daddy, Poppa, Papa Bear, Grandpa, ‘sweetie’ and ‘Heya Gorgeous’ (I’m holding onto that last one, BTW).
I currently hold Bob’s Book of World Records for sucking 42 raspberry Jell-O cubes through a straw in 90 seconds…and continue to defend my Clockworks record for back to back arm wrestling wins (97.8 gnomes). It would have been nice to say that I was also a member of the Green Lantern Corps, but they rejected my application.
Apparently they don’t have spandex suits in 5XL (their loss).
Aside from marrying my darling wife and being a father to 12 very cool (and properly raised) children, Wanted Hero is my favorite project to date. Each of these books, games and bits of merchandise have a sliver of my mind, a generous chunk of my heart and all of my experience behind them.
Life should be packed with encouragement, smiles and lots of laughter, so I hope you enjoy these books as much as I love making them for you.

Jaime Buckley is an incredible writer of a book series, that is not only fantasy, but technology and fantasy mixed up! And he is not only an author, but a kind, loving father that I adore.Simon
Jaime Buckley is a great person who loves to read, write, tell stories and make people laugh, especially with his books. He’s a great dad and I love him so, SO much!Ethany
Jaime Buckley is a unique and quirky breed of writer. It’s not because of his style or skill….but his focus.
What’s makes this man so likable and why we adore him is that within minutes, you quickly realize his business isn’t products or information–it’s people. Teaching, encouraging, entertaining, empowering and uplifting people–no matter who they are or where they live.
What’s impressive, is he’s incredibly good at it.
Just to be clear, this isn’t something Jaime does…it’s who he is…and that powerful fact makes him a gem to work with.
Jaime’s commitment to teaching kids how to be better people is inspiring.
He manages to teach heroism and other niceties through his fiction so that his readers don’t even realize they’re learning. That’s the best kind of teaching and it’s rare. I’m not sure I’ve met anyone like him and there’s probably a reason for that.
So, get to know him – you won’t regret it.
