About the Author

~J.M. Barrie, family man, playwright, and author, is known for numerous other successes beyond those occurring in our beloved Neverland. Born at Kirriemuir in Angus, Scotland in 1860, he lived most of his life in London, where he became a literary light for the ages. Among his sundry other works, Barrie is revered for his plays “Peter Pan; or the Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up,” “Mary Rose,” and “The Admirable Crichton.” Among his novels are “The Little Minister,” “The Little White Bird,” “Peter and Wendy.”

J.M. Barrie was a wit and wordsmith unlike any other, a master of understatement and a prince of pathos. The Reginetta Press encourages readers to indulge in Barrie’s other works in addition to this novel, and read about this fascinating man himself.

~Peter Von Brown is a J.M. Barrie scholar, and author of "Peter Pan's NeverWorld" and "Peter Pan: Betwixt and Between." His on-line blog is valued by J.M. Barrie students and enthusiasts. Von Brown examines current and historical Urban Fantasy, with an emphasis on works based on Peter Pan— books, films, plays, television, games, music, and more. Also featured are Von Brown’s original essays and artwork.

~Editor Andrea Jones is the author of the award-winning series, the "Hook & Jill" Saga (Reginetta Press). Based closely upon J.M. Barrie’s "Peter and Wendy," "Hook & Jill" is a serious parody of the Peter Pan story. Intended for adult readers, the novel questions the premise of Barrie’s original work: is it desirable to remain a child, or is it a greater adventure, after all, to grow up? A total of five books are charted for the "Hook & Jill" Saga.

Jones’ short stories appear in various anthologies, and Jones is the editor of classic restoration projects that include J.M. Barrie’s "Peter and Wendy: The Restored Text," and Alexandre Dumas’ "Prince of Thieves" and "Robin Hood the Outlaw" (Reginetta Press). Jones’ objective is to preserve beloved manuscripts in their original forms before time and re-telling corrupt the authors’ words.
