Andrea Jones is the author of the Hook & Jill Saga, an award-winning series of Neverland novels for adult readers.

Book One, Hook & Jill, is a serious parody of J.M. Barrie's classic story, Peter and Wendy. Jones questions Barrie’s premise: is it truly desirable to remain a child, or is it a greater adventure, after all, to grow up? Jones’ debut novel, Hook & Jill won six literary awards, among them the Gold Award for Adult Fiction and Literature from the Mom's Choice Awards®.
Other Oceans and Other Islands continue the story, and bring new awards for the Saga.

Jones graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where she studied Oral Interpretation of Literature, with a Literature Minor. In her career in television production, she worked for CBS and PBS affiliates, and corporate studios, also performing as on-camera and voice-over talent.

Jones is an editor of the Reginetta Press Classics Restoration program, which seeks to preserve the integrity of beloved old manuscripts before they are lost to time. The first project in the program is Peter and Wendy: The Restored Text. In tribute to J.M. Barrie, Jones corrected alterations made by modern publishers, returning Barrie’s timeless tale to its exact 1911 first edition text. This book is the basis of the Hook & Jill Saga, and Jones remains true to J.M. Barrie’s vision of his Neverland and its inhabitants.

Andrea Jones is known around the world as Capitana Red-Hand of the web-based pirate brotherhood, Under the Black Flag. She is also a member of the pirate re-enaction troupe, the Brethren of the Great Lakes.

Look for a total of five books in the Hook & Jill Saga, winner of 22 literary awards.
