Born May 27th, 1969 in Oakland California, Jaime always knew he wanted to entertain through stories. From campfire jaunts to comic books, most of his life centered around youth and crafting adventures that would cause one to stop and consider their own life and potential. At the height of his comic book production, he had readers in 60 countries and ran a message board with 29,000 registered users–creating instructional podcasts and interacting with 15K youth each week.
His goal? Encouraging youth to reach for their dreams.
When a car accident damaged his hands and took away his ability to draw, his wife and daughter encouraged Jaime to try his hand at being a novelist, instead. For years he resisted, feeling his talent was limited to cartooning.
“I would never have started writing if it wasn’t for Kathi and Cesilea,” said the Author in an interview, “People don’t realize the power of a loving family and persistent encouragement can have on someone who’s lost hope in fulfilling a dream. All I’ve ever wanted is to uplift and encourage others through epic adventures…set in a world that readers would become addicted to.
“I want to craft stories that make you stop and look inside…without noticing it ever happened.”
In 2010, Jaime dusted off nearly twenty years of world creation notes…with the full determination to build the full Wanted Hero Universe. He’s never looked back.
Over time, Jaime’s had encouragement from many famous professionals, but his joy comes in the response from readers themselves. Those who only know him through his stories:
