John Buckingham

To put it simply, John Buckingham is a Christian, husband, father, wordsmith, code slinger, retired homeschooler, burgeoning warrior and international bumbler.

Living with his wife, Rachel, in Portland, Oregon. John’s most recent passion is coding, the pursuit of which leads him to misplace large amounts of time, forget his surroundings, and frequently miss meals.

When he is not slinging code or designing the next great piece of art, John writes avidly, and spends time with his beautiful wife and wonderful daughter.

Having traveled much in his youth, John has since settled down (for the time being), and enjoys a mostly quiet life filled with simple pleasures, and a great deal of rain.
