More About the Author

I am a husband and the father of four beautiful children. My boys, Chance and Kyle, are my soccer and basketball players, and my daughters, Gabby and Andee, are the readers and artists in the family. By day I work in the world of business, mainly in Supply Chain. When I'm not working, I enjoy nothing more than hanging out with my family. I help coach the boys' soccer team and watch the latest movies with the girls. But when the kids are in bed, my wife, Brandi, and I spend our evenings catching up on our shows.
Work and family are not my only passions in life. I started writing short stories in my twenties. I wrote for fun with no dreams of actually becoming an "author" of books. My drive for storytelling began when I was a little kid. It was what my family did when we got together for holidays or reunions, and it has stuck with me.​
Insignificant Moments is my first novel. The idea came to me the day I opened a chain email. I don't remember much about that day, but I remember how good I felt after reading that email. I thought, what if an email from a stranger had the power to impact the lives of many people? Then I tried to think of how that ripple could affect the rest of the world. The idea was too big for a short story, so I shelved it. That was until the day that Brandi told me I should try writing a novel. So I did.
After writing Insignificant Moments, I started receiving emails from people, most of whom I've never met, telling me how much they enjoyed the story and wanted to read more. Luckily, I had Across the Creek already in motion. And for the past two years, I have been working on this story. I've had a blast writing the lives of Jesse, Sarah, Robbie, and Kevin. And I was so excited the day I was able to finally release it.
My next book is Beneath the Willow, the sequel to Across the Creek. This story brings back many of the characters from the first book and a whole new set of obstacles for them to overcome. But I feel this story brings everything full circle.
As much as I enjoy writing, I wouldn't have made it this far without the love and support of my family and friends. They are the ones who encourage me every day and inspire me to continue chasing my dream.​

Sometimes I think the reviews are written and paid for by amazon or the author. I don't want a book that is advertised for free to require me to buy the next book for the rest of the story. When I come upon an author that I like, I don't hesitate to purchase more books...but I resent, STRONGLY, being forced to. READ THE 1 star reviews BEFORE YOU BUY BOOKS

I liked this book okay until I came to the ending. It just ends and gives you no closure. You can buy the next book if you want to finish the story. What a rip off.

Was hooked from beginning to end. Jeremy did a great job at making you want to know more about these characters and how there story unfolds. An easy read for a lazy day. Can't wait to read the sequel.

Jeremy Asher has put a lot of thought into the characters in this book. The main characters, Jesse and Sarah were perfect. I will look forward to more books about Jesse Malone. There were exciting plot twists and many other interesting people in the book and it kept my interest all the way through to the end. This novel was one of the best from a new writer (this is only his second book) that I have read in years.

I wasn't sure how this book was going to be, but within the first chapter I was immediately surprised and hooked. This book was definitely not the typical romance story I thought it was, and I'm very happy I gave it a chance. There better be a sequel of some kind!!!

I picked this up as a free book; I'm glad that I did pick it up. The story is compelling in an odd way. It isn't fast-paced, yet it invites the reader to continue turning the pages. The story begins on a particular day in the protagonist's (Jesse's) childhood. We soon learn that this day is both the best and worst day of his young life, and it will continue to be so for many years. There is an assortment of characters, some of which could be more fleshed out, that I found myself liking--even caring--for. This story is about love and, in an odd sort of way, redemption, yet there isn't a clearly happy ending. That is for another day. I'd like to find out what happens to this assortment of people.

At the very end is a blurb for Asher's next book. It says, "Jesse returns in 'Beneath the Willow,' coming soon." What I'd like to know is this:

How soon?

The book was good until the ending. Ending was so bad it ruined the whole story. I was sorry I even read it.

I did not dislike the book, but I did not love it either. Basically, much of this book sounds like a twelve year old tried to write a novel and make it sound like a "grown-up" novel by starring the main characters as early twenty somethings. Particularly, one scene in the book describes the main character going to his 12 year old love interests house at the age of 22 to meet her fiancee at the surprise party she was throwing him. Then, the next scene he and her fiancee are beating each other up because his intentions are not good. In the next,scene, the fiancee has hired him to do a job alongside his fiancee while he leaves for several days for a Bachelor party? The book could have been much better written then it was, but for the low price of free what do you expect? I just felt much of the plot was too contrived to be a truly great book and had a hard time buying into the premise.
