    It wasn't until one of my friends suggested I find a "Fantasy Forum" that I found you guys...and I'm so glad I did.

    My name Jaime Buckley. Few boring things about me:
    • Used to be a cartoonist (made comic books for a living);
    • now I write YA books for a living;
    • married to my best friend, have 11 children and now grandchildren;
    • I love not only to write, but creating all sorts of entertainment--choose-your-own-ending books/games, RPG's, Card Games, Board Games...


    It's not easy to find environments where you can be yourself when it comes to fantasy. Looking forward to becoming part of the community and contributing whatever I can =).

    *cuts off Eph's cartoonist jargon monologue* Welcome to TFF Jaime!
    It sounds like your friend was right in sending you here, although, have you considered the fact that they might be wanting to get rid of you!?

    Is he nearing your record?

    Thanks Tanasa! I plan on it. Love to interact and share/help. Have a lot of random experience, so I hope to contribute--but it's so nice to be in a place where I can enjoy fantasy with like minds.

    I don't think they would be proper friends if they weren't! Have to get rid of the competition, right? (smug look overshadowing his face)
    BTW--I didn't know having kids was a competition?!? If so, my dad should get involved--I'm the oldest of 19. Heh. Dad wins.

    I said that because AlphaAlex is usually related to sex and all that, and he's probably attempting to populate Australia on his own, without getting married. heh
    Na, just making fun :D

    I hope you don't mind my asking but... are you Mormon?

    Hehe, good to know about AlphaAlex. Yes, I am a Mormon, but my info about my dad was a cheat. My mother died in a car accident in 2004. It was so bad, it made the national news. My dad remarried and she already had kids and they've had a few. I'm the oldest of 10 from my mom.

    So no polygamist jokes please. I'm from Oakland CA. Just happened to meet an amazing Island girl here in Utah and decided to stay a while.

    ...that was 25 years ago. Hah!

    If you guys want to see what I do, you can always go over to Wantedhero.com and take a gander. I don't do the cartoons anymore--but I could dig some old stuff up and post it if you liked. Just trying to stay within the rules of the forum.

    I was mainly thinking Mormon because my dad works for a US Mormon and they have loads of children.

    And, well... Salt-Lake City is in Utah. :D
