J.E. "Buck" Buchanan
Buck conducted and supervised major criminal investigations—homicide, smuggling, official corruption, fraud, etc.—for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for a good chunk of his life. The secret files in this novel aren’t based on those experiences because according to him, they were much weirder than mutant vampires, werewolves, and witches.
He wasn’t born into a life of crime (writing). After he escaped high school with minimal scars from sports and young love, he studied and worked at engineering and business before settling into crime fighting. Since then, in addition to consulting, he has focused on writing, winning several short story contests and conducting a writers’ workshop for the Palm Beach County Library.
He lives in South Florida with his wife Susan and every stray dog and cat she can drag in. He says he can’t complain about it because she dragged him in too.
