He has written two novels, "Life at These Speeds" (2002), about a high school boy who finds his life through long-distance running and track, and "In Summer" (2004), with a similar premise, about a high school graduate caught between his adolescence and adulthood. The manuscript of "Life at These Speeds" won a James A. Michener/Copernicus Society of America Fellowship in 2000 and was later a seleciton for Barnes and Noble's Discover Great New Writers. Currently, the novel is being developed as a feature film starring Justin Long and Sam Rockwell.

His recipes and food writing have appeared in the "Chicago Tribune", "The Washington Post", and "Food and Wine". "The Cornbreaad Book" was nominated for a James Beard Award.

Jeremy Jackson also writes young adult novels under the pseudonym Alex Bradley. Alex Bradley's first novel was "24 Girls in 7 Days" (2005), about a romantically challenged teenager who dates 24 girls in 7 days. His second novel was "Hot Lunch" (2007), about two high school girls who have to take over their school's hot lunch program as punishment for a food fight. Many young adults, as they are so put, have enjoyed these novels.
