From an early age, Jacqueline Hicks has written scores of screenplays, full length plays, 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 and relative, Jacqueline 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 of the same title. 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. And when you're producing your own projects, there are tons of crew roles you take on 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 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 Creative World Awards, a Round Two Semi-finalist in the Page Awards Contest, and Winner in a Three Lines Or Less Logline Contest.
In 2020, Jacqueline completed a contained thriller called, "Freezer", which is now being reviewed by three major Hollywood production companies. It is also being reviewed by Impact/Netflix.
Jacqueline is the owner of JHi Productions and New Creative Artists, female-owned and Black-owned production companies.
