Born and raised in a small-town in Idaho, Jeremy now resides in the Pacific Northwest with his partner and their weak-in-the-knees-cute, but teenager-precocious six-year-old daughter. Jeremy believes the best part about writing is making connections with readers!
"Pride" is not an emotion with which I identify very often; it smacks too much of boasting for my taste. Every once in a while, however...today is a good day to brag. I'm proud to be a gay man; I haven't always been able to say that, but I'm grateful that I can now. I'm proud of this unbelievably-exemplary-in-every-single-w

To Touch the Stars won a 2012 Rainbow Award as Best Gay Romance (The William Neale Award) and as Best Gay Novel.
To Touch the Stars is a wonderful novel which takes place in the early 1960-70s when American was attempting to reach the stars. A story of two men who meet, confusedly know what they feel towards each other yet chaotically go and live through the turmoil of life in the 60-70s, into the 80s. There is no sex in the story, besides the kiss that Nick surprises Tait with, from which he flees, disgusted and surprised. I liked the non-sex element of the story, made it seem more real and true than any other Dreamspinner fabricated books that I read this year. For this I give it a top 10 all around. --Mykola DementiukFurther Readings:

For happenstance news correspondent Tait Williams and newly minted astronaut Nicholas Sullivan, 1966 is a year of beginnings. Idealistic Tait dreams of changing the world with his pen, and Nick has his sights set on the moon. With the Apollo program in full swing, Nick is on the fast track to his dreams-even as Tait's hopes of covering the Vietnam war are sidelined by a cause he doesn't believe in: a correspondent assignment with NASA. It is here, in the golden age of the US space program, that the hearts of two men collide, setting them on a path of discovery spanning two decades.
From war-torn Cambodia to the decadence and heartbreak of the early 1980s, Nick and Tait come together time and again only to be ripped apart by social conventions and their own ambitions. As they strive to realize dreams that remain elusively beyond their grasp, through each other and the extraordinary people that touch their lives, they will come to understand that the things that matter most-the brightest stars of all-have been within their reach all along.
