Jeremy Palmer died once. But he totally came back. His temporary death during a botched heart surgery left him technically a cyborg and pointed him toward a career working in the disability community, culminating when Jeremy Palmer Day became an actual thing in Denver. Seeing how his near death affected his family left him feeling guilty, and thus fascinated with writing about guilt and how it manifests in unexpected ways. Jeremy’s work has been awarded the USC Jay Roach Endowed Scholarship.
