FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LOCAL LA MIRADA PROFESSIONAL WRITER LAUNCHES A NEW APPROACH TO A FAIRYTALE CLASSIC
LA MIRADA, CALIFORNIA — Local author and cancer registrar Elizabeth Los of La Mirada, will debut her fantasy novel, Second on the Right, May 9, 2014.
“I was prompted to write ‘Second on the Right’ because the first time I read Peter Pan and watched the Disney movie I felt Captain Hook needed more to his back story than was revealed. Fans around me cheered for Peter Pan. I thought it odd, considering this young boy had, prior to the start of the story, cut off Hook’s hand and fed it to the crocodile. That was no action of an innocent boy. My mind began to weave a story for Hook, one where he originally was the good guy, a family man. Following the events of his first encounter with Pan, perhaps he had changed not only physically but mentally as well. And that is where we see the captain when J.M. Barrie’s story begins.”
Spawned from an ancient promise, treachery and intrigue follow the protagonists through our world and one lost to the waves. Bound by an invisible bond, they are thrust into a fantastical world of pirates and demons.
James Benedict is a just man haunted by evil. Pushed to the edge, everything stripped from him, a new man arises . . . a man whose name strikes fear into the hearts of all who hear it: “Captain Hook”.
Eileen Davis was a timid woman. Through a fateful cruise she finds herself in the company of the Captain of the Mistral Thief. With his guidance, and the meddling of the local barista, she eventually finds her inner strength.
Will the two of them unite through time to fulfill the promise of their ancestors or will tempers ignite leading all to failure?
Second on the Right is Elizabeth’s first novel that lives up to the high standard that J.M. Barrie began.
