A native of Alabama, Jeremy Hicks spent several years working as a field archaeologist throughout the Southeast before teaming up with his longtime friend and co-author, Barry Hayes, to realize a shared creative dream. The writing team of Hicks & Hayes created an original horror-fantasy environment, wrote a screenplay (The Cycle of Ages Saga: Finders Keepers) to introduce it, and then adapted it into a novelization of the same name. As a result, their first novel was published by Kerlak Publishing (Dark Oak Press and Media) in the spring of 2013.
As co-founder of Broke Guys Productions, Jeremy has co-written three more as-of-yet unproduced screenplays, including the first sequel to CoAS: Finders Keepers. Another of his screenplays, a darkly comedic horror tale about meth zombies plaguing a trailer park in Alabama, placed as a Top Finalist in the 2011 Cherub Films Horror Screenplay Competition under the title Night of the Living Rednecks.
Jeremy Hicks is also a poet and infrequent Yahoo! contributor. Two of his poems (It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Fascism and Do Not Waver) are available online through Yahoo! Voices.
