Remember my why.

I had a strong Why. That's what kept me working even after the emotion of enthusiasm had long past. 


I started drawing mostly in the coffee shop. I would write for ten minutes a day.  Just a simple daily routine.

I knew that I could have given up after being con by a famous publisher and allow that to crush me or use the pain as fuel to get to something much better. It wasn't easy but my desire for a brighter future .  And my mother support that was My Why.

Jermain Smith was a featured children’s book author at Love Fellowship Tabernacle's Youth Sunday School's 2018 Reading Genius Book Festival in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn in April.

The day included readings from children book authors, signings, games, workshops, vendors, and so much more. Amidst all the vendors, games, and book authors, Jermain Smith, emerged on the scene, proving to us all that it’s never been a better time to be a black, young,  self-published author.

Brooklyn Astronaut is not only an educational read, but it’s filled with diverse characters. The story centers on an eight year old boy who dreams of becoming an astronaut. This book is great for youth who aspire to have a career in science or is afraid to take their dreams to another level.

Librarian Reviews

This was such a cute children's story about a young African American boy who wished to become an astronaut when he got older! In the book, we saw Jamuel travel to outer space and meet some new unique friends, as well as enjoyed an outing with his friends on Earth.

I loved the diversity Jermain Smith used in his characters - from the single working mother who co-parents with her child's father, to even Jamuel's dad who works as a janitor in the museum.

I just wished Smith, showed one of the African American characters having a job like the Asian kids father, Sanzo who works as a computer programmer. I also loved the unique/cultural names he used.

Thanks to Smith, small children will learn that it's okay to have friends from all sorts of backgrounds and they will also be able to see other children with unique names if they themselves have one.

Another thing I loved about this book, was the educational end when Jamuel and his friends all went to the museum. They recounted the interesting facts they learned as the book ended.

Brooklyn Astronaut is a storybook that makes the perfect gift for children between 5-12 years. The main character is Jamuel, an 8-year old African American boy who loves to dream about adventures and games with friends, in outer space, aliens, and the moon.

He lives with his parents and has a set of diverse friends who comes from different parts of the world. Jamuel's mom takes him on a trip to a science museum where his dad works.

On their way, they pick up Jamuel's friends and the museum tour turns out to be fun and educational. They learn how the earth revolves around the sun, why there are different temperatures on the moon.

An inspiring story with neat illustrations, it teaches kids to dream big and to have a rich imagination. The book also shows good family values that Jamuel's parents practice.
