Terrell Vernon Hicks (T.V.H) was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts and attended Curry College where he earned his Bachelor's Degree in Communications while interning at Boston Magazine.
His love for storytelling began at an early age. He wrote his first story at the age of 12. A four-page short story about his middle school classmates. After receiving, positive feedback from a friend's mother, his love for telling stories began. With his new passion and a word-processor from his grandparents, he immersed himself in storytelling, honing his craft every day after school. In 1997, at the age of 16, he received an Honorable Mention Award from the Boston Herald newspaper for their Tenth Annual Scholastic Writing Competition for a short story about his grandfather.
In late 1998, Terrell had the desire to shift his focus from writing full-length stories to writing movies. After reading Writing Screenplays That Sell by Michael Hauge, he began writing screenplays by viewing his favorite films and writing out each and every scene in screenplay format. With a few sample scripts under his belt, he began writing original works that garnered the attention of literary agents.
After very short stint in the area of photography and video production, in 2011 Terrell received a story idea that brought his writing full circle. He began a three-year manifestation of an idea to a completed work. John Doe, his self-published debut novel was released in October 2014 to positive reviews.
In 2020, Terrell created T's Notebook: The Podcast, a podcast about storytelling, entertainment, and everything in-between.
Terrell resides in Boston and is working on two new books.
