My Bio

My dad, Jaime Buckley, is probably one of the most genuine personalities you’ll meet online.

As a father of 13 hereditarily passionate and driven children, his heartfelt visions for their future not just in business but in life have nuanced themselves throughout the work of his professional career.

As a professional illustrator for over 30 yrs, game creator, podcaster, author of 25 books, 13 comics, and 2 graphic novels, his goal in this was to create worthwhile heroes for children to emulate in a world where true heroes are hard to find.

He launched WantedHero in 2005 and received 750,000 visitors from 60 different countries, all by word of mouth, in the first 10 months.

This business being founded on the fantasies that began to bud and bloom in his youth was a reminder that he had pursued illustration in the beginning wanting to see others achieve their dreams and goals as much as he desired to reach his own. And in the 1,000+ articles, he’s written since 2006, and more than 500 clients giving 100% 5-star ratings in the past 3 yrs, these values have never undergone reduction or minimizing.

At the heart of all his success, in the firm hard ground underneath his most epic and humbling setbacks, the essence of my father’s work has always been a love for people. Intrinsic value for the soul of an individual.

My daddy, my favorite storyteller, has dreamt up a million dissimilar ways to teach me that every human being has infinite worth.



Jaime is working on Howling Shadows, book #8 from his main series, converting 3+ Million words in notes onto WantedHeroWorld (on WorldAnvil ) and has been invited to be a panelist and moderator at the 38th annual Life, The Universe and Everything writing symposium for 2020.
