Although a field archaeologist by trade, Jeremy Hicks teamed up with his friend Barry Hayes to turn their nightmares into fiction. Hicks & Hayes created a fantasy-horror 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. Their first novel was published by Dark Oak Press in 2013. Jeremy co-founded Broke Guys Productions. He is a poet and short story writer too.
