A paleobotanist by trade, Jim Buckner spent the first half of his career searching for medicinal value in ancient plants. His controversial discovery of a means to greatly prolong human life both ended his stint as a research scientist and threatened the lives of his daughter and himself.
After being forcibly retired he began writing novels as a means to uncover the truth and expose the conspiracy surrounding his name.
Due to his criminal status around much of the world, Buckner is unable to field questions or comments directly. Such contact can be made through fellow author David Mark Brown (fourth generation descendant of the original DMB).
