Description

St. Catherine's is a place for misfits, for the forgotten, and it is also the only home James Cook has ever known. Abandoned on the front steps as an infant, James is raised by Sister Maddie who loves him like the mother he never knew. Growing up at St. Catherine's, James battles one illness after another, and spends most of his time in the infirmary. One night, a young boy is delivered to St. Catherine's in the arms of his distraught mother. The boy, Peter, is mischievous and James tries his hardest to stay as far away from him, and his band of merry followers, as possible. The younger boys at St. Catherine's are drawn to the charismatic Peter, but James, being older and in his humble opinion, wiser, is not recruited so easily. As the two become more closely acquainted, Peter reveals to James that he has a secret. This secret will turn James' life upside down and set he and Peter on a collision course with destiny in that far of place known to children and dreamers...Neverland. Before he was Captain Hook, he was simply James Cook, and as it turns out, he was not such a dastardly villain after all. Join some of the most beloved characters in children's literature as their roots are laid bare and the truth of their humble beginnings is revealed.

About Kalynn Bayron

In January 2014, Kalynn Bayron was struck by an idea. While watching Once Upon a Time she became fascinated with the backstories of some of the beloved characters in literature, particularly the villains. She began to picture what their lives must have been like and questioned if the fairy tales we hear as children were really all there was to it. She decided to commit to paper the story of one of the most fearsome characters in all of children's literature, Captain James Hook. While working out the details of the plot, Kalynn realized that she had much more than a simple origin story. She had the opportunity to delve into the mind of a villain where she found that maybe, just maybe, we have been wrong about Captain Hook from the beginning. Kalynn Bayron is an independently published author. She lives with her husband and four young children in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
