Into the Fire (Book 3)

Race to Til-Thorin (Book 2)

Prelude to a Hero (Book 1)


Hi! My name is Jaime Buckley and I'm a published fantasy author, professional illustrator, and dad of 13 kids (those are children, not goats).   My personal dream for the last 30 years has been to provide heroes in a modern world where they're needed more than ever. An addictive fantasy realm for my kids, grandkids, and anyone who loves magic, mystery, and wants an adventure to get lost in.    Wanted Hero started in 1990, grew into comic books, launched online in 2005 (after a single pull of a slot machine to PAY for it all--true story), became YA novels in 2011, and now we're here on WorldAnvil, building   My first book, PRELUDE TO A HERO, had a top 20 spot on Amazon for over three years and there are already seven books in the main series. I was also encouraged by Dave Wolverton to write and publish an Advanced Worldbuilding Guide for writers.   Since I started using WorldAnvil, I have moved all my world resources here, because this is my home now. Love the people, love the community, love the platform...and I personally believe that my stories will only reach their full potential by using the amazing tools Dimitris (who I affectionately call 'SANTA') creates.   Thanks for reading this much about some guy you've never met.   A bit sad,...but thanks.
(wink)   Hope to meet you and have a kind word.   Jaime Buckley
