Jeremy & Carmelita Watson

Jeremy C. Watson

Residing in Belleville, Illinois, Jeremy C. Watson is a proud husband, father of four, successful entrepreneur, photographer, 5-time self-published author, and spoken word artist.


Released in 2019, Jeremy’s first book, If the World Was Without Color, has sold over 500 copies and distributed to over 350 homes across the United States via Just Like Me! Box. 

"Creating books that are for my children, about my children, and feature my children are my letters of love and legacy to my children.  These will be pieces of me they will, one day, pass along to their children." JWatson


Since then, Jeremy has self-published several books, all dedicated to his children and wife of 20 years. Each book uniquely represents each child with beautiful photography that makes up the illustrations. Books authored by Jeremy C Watson can be found on and a host of other online sites.


Authoring books on varied subject matters has gained Jeremy noteworthy local attention with featured interviews on KSDK’s Show Me St. Louis, Fox 2’s Studio STL, interviews with accomplished Cleveland reporter/host and creator of The Good Stuff, Dawn Kendrick, and a radio interview with the gospel music famed host, Chuck Spearman, to name a few. 


Currently, Jeremy recently completed the writing of his first play titled The Poetic Conversations of Ma and is releasing his 6th highly anticipated book of poetry titled The Complicated Reflections of Him in November 2023, which tackles a plethora of subject matters that can often be taboo conversations for men to communicate. Along with Jeremy's book of poetry, The Complicated Reflections of Him, he additionally released a complementing journal titled The Reflections of Him. 

"For as long as I can remember, writing has been a source of escape for me. When I was a child, journaling was my hiding place. I could give words to the emotions I wasn't brave enough to give voice to. In writing my truths,  I began to find different ways of communicating those truths with poetry and/or short stories. That was how I developed a love for writing. For a kid that didn't feel he had much of a voice, I somehow felt heard in my writing even if the only one reading was me." JWatson

 Jeremy is also gaining traction as a spoken word artist performing at various venues and occasions throughout the St. Louis metropolitan area. In early 2023, Jeremy released his first spoken word effort titled Forever in Love, a piece detailing his walk-through relationship and marriage. Forever in Love can be heard on all streaming platforms. Jeremy celebrated his first win as a spoken word artist winning first place in W.O.W Workshop on Wheels Spoken Word Competition.


Along with his wife of almost two decades, Jeremy established By These Hands Designs, a small business specializing in handmade hand-built items of various sorts. Beautifully crafted wreaths, hardwood furniture & décor, luxuriously silky body butter & scrubs are all made by the hands and creativity of the Watson brand. Jeremy recently celebrated being an awardee of the Side Hustler Awards, which honor local entrepreneurs.
