After nearly dying at birth, Jeremy Hicks gave up his ghost during the sorrowful autumn of his twelfth year. The outsider that occupied his body from that point onward did the best it could to imitate him. However, this being’s bizarre sense of humor and inability to fully mimic human emotions kept it an outsider. After many unhappy years of trying to assimilate to this plane of existence and its daily doldrums, he turned to the cadre of demons in his life for other options. He teamed up with one of them inhabiting a ginger known as Barry Hayes and together they turned their nightmares into fiction.
The writing team of Hicks & Hayes created an original horror-fantasy environment (Faltyr), 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 Dark Oak Press in August 2013. Its sequel, Cycle of Ages Saga: Sands of Sorrow was published in 2015. In 2017, Broke Guys Productions released new editions of both novels with coordinating covers by Enggar Adirasa and D. Alan Lewis.
Jeremy is also a poet and short story writer. Three of his short stories are featured in Dark Oak Press anthologies (Capes & Clockwork 1 & 2; Luna's Children: Full Moon Mayhem). Pro Se Press/Productions has published one of his stories on Smashwords(Savior of Istara, a tale from the Cycle of Ages Saga).
