The profession of "author" was not Jerome's initial calling. Though the seed was planted in childhood, it only came about as a result of a winding and varied career that included paleoanthropology field experience in Kenya, training in the fine arts, acting for the stage and screen, work in communication and design, and teaching. Hailing from a French Canadian background, fluently bilingual in both English and French, and a self-described compulsive communicator, Jerome’s interests have long orbited the binary system of science and history. It was the weaving together of these diverse interests and influences that ultimately culminated in Jerome's debut novel The Perpetual Now.

In 2021, The Perpetual Now was named winner the Best Indie Book Award (BIBA) for Science Fiction and was a winner in the Commercial Fiction category of the Eric Hoffer Awards, where it was also named a finalist for the First Horizon Award (Best Work by a Debut Author), and shortlisted for the Grand Prize. In addition, it was named as a finalist in the Cross-Genre category at both the International Book Awards (2020) and at the National Indie Excellence Awards (2021).
