About this author

Husband & father of 11 children, Jaime Buckley is no stranger to storytelling. As a cartoonist, he self-published 12 comics and two graphic novels before his daughter and wife encouraged him to tell his full story in novel form. Both Jaime and Kathi (as editor) worked diligently to bring the first installment Prelude to a Hero to life.

Jaime has received much encouragement in the development of, and praise for, his "Chronicles of a Hero" series, including International and NY Times Best Selling Authors David Farland and Barry Eisler.

Jaime continues to publish novels & games (two created by fans) based on his Wanted Hero universe.

“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

“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

“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
