About the Author
J.M. Barrie (1860-1937) was a Scottish novelist and playwright, best known for his world-famous Peter Pan stories.
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? Jones' research for "Hook & Jill" led her to the realization that "Peter and Wendy" had been altered by modern publishers; as her tribute to J.M. Barrie, she set out to restore the text. Within the "Hook & Jill" Saga series, Jones deepens and explores Barrie's famous and infamous characters. A total of five books are charted for the "Hook & Jill Saga." Graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Andrea Jones studied Oral Interpretation of Literature, with a Literature minor. Her earlier career was in television production.
Peter Von Brown is a J.M. Barrie scholar, receiving Honors at Knox College for his Independent Study of Sir J.M. Barrie as a Modern Mythmaker. Von Brown's research resulted in a paper on the socio-psychological ramifications of Pan in our culture, and a new novel. "Peter Pan's NeverWorld" is an extension of "Peter and Wendy." It is based upon J.M. Barrie's notes, jotted down as Barrie mused upon a new adventure for Pan. Thus, "Peter Pan's NeverWorld" is as close as eager readers can come to an authentic sequel to the beloved story. Von Brown's next work was "Peter Pan: Betwixt and Between," gathering the threads of Barrie's works to explore Peter's passage from infancy in Kensington Gardens to boyhood in the Neverland. Peter Von Brown designed the cover image for "Peter and Wendy: The Restored Text."
