About this author

Loving husband and father of 12 talented, brilliant and oftentimes sarcastic kids, Jaime Buckley has become the children’s champion and a parents best friend.

Author, illustrator & popular blogger, he writes about his exploits, sharing daily tips and techniques with readers. Jaime entertains the young and young-at-heart through epic fantasy and his off-the-wall parental cleverness.

His focus and passion revolves around the potential of others. The underlaying theme of all his books, games and articles can be summed up in a single line: You are more than you think you are.

He’s too fat to learn ballet and though the only thing he knows how to play is his iPod, he IS taking classes to learn the kazoo.

He lives in Utah with his family.

It's all about life and the experiences of life. Wanted Hero was created because of the personal struggles I had as a youth. I wanted to show other kids that they mattered and also to encourage them to reach for their dreams.

Life might be stranger than fiction, but fiction allows many writers to more accurately portray life to their readers.(less)

I was a cartoonist by trade--but a car accident took the fine motor skills of my hands. After surgery I wasn't able to make comic books anymore, so my wife and oldest daughter worked on me for the better part of two years, trying to convince me to take the comic and make it into a novel series.

Sixteen books later, I found I like this more.

Haven't looked back since.(less)

“There comes a moment in every life when the Universe presents you with an opportunity to rise to your potential. An open door that only requires the heart to walk through, seize it and hang on.
The choice is never simple. It’s never easy. It’s not supposed to be. But those who travel this path have always looked back and realized
that the test was always about the heart. ...The rest is just practice.”
Jaime Buckley, Prelude to a Hero

“Life has a complex plan that involves you and me.
While we dream, work and organize, life makes its own tweaks—and many times circumstances might not turn out as we hoped.
But life is not the enemy. It’s not against us. Life provides opportunities for growth and strength of character.
Stop fighting against your greatest ally.”
Jaime Buckley

“We will forever be vulnerable to the weaknesses in our own hearts and our selfish desires.”
Jaime Buckley, Hobin Luckyfeller's Fieldguide: Demoni Vankil

“There is no limit as to what we can learn. Through study, we can learn from the past. Experience can empower us to handle the present. For those who desire to learn of the future, dreams hold a subtle key.
Not all things we see, as we sleep, should be cast aside as non-consequential rubbish. It is true that the mind can play many tricks…but it can also send you messages meant to be deciphered at a later date.”
Jaime Buckley, The Truth About Lies

“I'd like to emphasize that when a reader finishes a great novel, he will immediately begin looking for another. If someone loves your book, it increases the chance that he or she will look at mine. So there is no competition between writers. Another writer's success helps build a larger readership for all of us.”
David Farland

“The invigorating energy in fresh-cut grass and cool, crisp chlorine filled Wendell’s nostrils as they lounged by the pool in Evan’s back yard. Looking past the back fence the wild grass bowed to the playful persuasion of the warm summer breeze and the corn lilies and columbines bounced their jeweled heads, laughing and teasing butterflies. Even the Cooper’s hawk atop a nearby fence post, content with feasting on a woodpecker knew, it was a perfect day.”
Jaime Buckley, Prelude to a Hero

“Life has a complex plan that involves you and me.
While we dream, work and organize, life makes its own tweaks—and many times circumstances might not turn out as we hoped.
But life is not the enemy. It’s not against us. Life provides opportunities for growth and strength of character.
Stop fighting against your greatest ally.”
Jaime Buckley

“Nothing is truly free. Every gift has a price, paid for by someone in coin, favors, expectations or goods.
Things get a little sticky when Life shows up wanting to collect on something you thought was free.
Always ask the price.”
Jaime Buckley, Prelude to a Hero
