The Tempest Series consist so far of Tempest (#1), Tomorrow is Today (#0.5), Vortex (#2) releases January 2013 then an untitled book (#3) is set for 2014. Jackson is the one time-traveler you'd want popping up in your timeline. Let's read about him below.

Who is Jackson Meyer?
Wow…that’s a good question. And I totally refuse to talk about myself in the third person despite the title of this little essay. Do I have to know exactly who I am right now…like this very second? You know who would love to hear the answer to this question…my girlfriend Holly Flynn. She’s made a habit out of digging into my secrets. It’s actually kind of funny and maybe just a little bit sweet, even if I don’t tell her anything ninety nine percent of the time. If it were any other girl prodding me constantly for secrets, I’d be annoyed as hell, but this is Holly so…
Take last night for example, we were laying on my couch watching TV when she just randomly asked me if I’ve always been able to speak French and I was too busy trying to figure out where she was going with this question that I got distracted and just gave her the real answer, which is yes and I don’t know why or how, instead of the standard…my school started foreign language in first grade. I guess my dad spoke it to me and Courtney when we were babies, either that or a nanny. I just don’t remember. And I found myself telling her all this. She rolled over on her back, looking up at me and I could see her carefully storing the information away, piecing together more of her giant Jackson Meyer puzzle. But she let me kiss her and didn’t push for more details and then she said, “You could probably say horrible things to me in French and I’d still be turned on.” Then I was thinking that if all Holly’s interrogations led to her saying something like that and of course her being turned on, I might be up for these invasions of privacy more often.
And now I’m wondering if it’s possible for someone to know me better than I know myself?
NOBODY KNOWS I AM: A Time Traveler…or hellish freak of nature, which ever you prefer.
I WISH I COULD STOP: Getting older.
I'M A SUCKER FOR: Smart chicks…or smart-ass chicks…or even better, both. Oh, and cute little kids, especially the ones missing their front teeth. Toothless kids are practically lethal. It should be illegal for them to ask you for anything at all because how are you supposed to say no?
A GOOD TIME FOR ME IS: Listening to live music. Somewhere in NYC. Preferably with alcohol, but since I can’t always get away with this, I can also do without. Actually, I think this might be tied with dancing in one of NYC’s awesome clubs. Especially if I’ve got a hot dance partner, and by hot I mean willing to let go a little, get real close and not make a big deal out of it.
NOBODY WOULD BELIEVE ME IF THEY SAW ME: Doing my own laundry and meticulously cleaning my room…yeah, I know I’m an Upper East Side product with a housekeeper and laundry service but I don’t mind doing laundry and depending on who I’m showing my room too, quick alterations are sometimes required so I clean it myself most of the time.
I'D REALLY RATHER: Skip small talk and move onto making out…okay, maybe not in every situation, but sometimes, I’m hanging out with a girl I like and I just know that either we’re going to have this amazing kiss or we aren’t and that seems too important to not get out in the open right away. Although with Holly, I kind of didn’t care or even think about any of this…I kept listening to her talk for a couple hours on our first date and it wasn’t until she said something so…so perfect and I didn’t know how to tell her that was exactly what I needed to hear so I just kissed her instead of talking. But everything is different with Holly and I’m not sure the small talk rule applies to her.
THE FIRST THING I DO IN THE MORNING IS: The answer to this question is a direct result of what I did the night before. I can’t answer it without knowing those details.
Did your computer screen just get all foggy? I knows mines did. Jackson is a definite hottie. To celebrate Jackson time-traveling here today, Julie is offering a signed copy of Tempest.
