*Yes, his books are published under Jeremy JORDAN King because that's his name, but once he started writing theatre, it got confusing because there’s a brown-haired actor named Jeremy Jordan, so he dropped the Jordan and opted for simply J and yes, it’s slightly confusing and yes it’s a sore spot, and yes the world just has to deal 🙃
