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's debut novel Six Points of Light:Hook's Origin is represented by Booktrope. She lives with her husband and four young children in Colorado Springs,Colorado.
