From an early age, Jacqueline Hicks has written screenplays, teleplays, full length plays, and scores of short stories and poetry. In the past ten years, she has written over two dozen plays and skits that have been performed before mass audiences.
Inspired by a Hollywood screenwriter (Child of Grace) and relative, she wrote and completed her first official full length film called, “Your Girl…Is Mine: The Beginning”(YGIM), a suspense thriller and the backstory to a screenplay she was working on called, Triggers. Jacqueline used her own funds to produce YGIM. She hired cast and crew, converted her home into a key set location, directed, produced and even did some fine acting as well. Jacqueline also transformed the screenplay into a successful nine-part web series (thousands of You Tube and Facebook fans). The film became an Official Selection in the 2012 Roxbury International Film Festival.
Jacqueline has been featured on Boston Neighborhood Network (BNN), and on The Empowerment Zone television series several times.
Her awards for her screenplay, “Your Girl Is Mine” (suspense thriller) includes preliminary finalist in the 2012 Creative World Awards, a Round Two semi-finalist in the Page Awards Contest, and fourth place runner up in the most recent Three Lines Or Less Logline Contest.
Jacqueline also recently completed a romantic comedy called, "Ladykiller Geeks". She became first runner up in the Three Lines Or Less Logline contest for this script.
