Technically they're wrong. In the Disney movie, Smee is never actually referred to as "first mate." However it does say that in Disney storybooks of Peter Pan.
In Barrie, Smee is the bo'sun [boatswain (a synonym) in the play], not the first mate. In fact, there is no mention of a first mate other than: Nibs and John were first and second mate. And that's not even the crew of the Jolly Roger. And he's never "Mr. Smee" - just Smee.
I am a fiction writer. Mostly I compose in the Urban Fantasy genre. When asked, I usually liken it to "The Twilight Zone" - extraordinary events emerging in everyday life. I graduated with Honors in Creative Writing from Knox College in 1993. Obviously I also scribble cartoonish drawings.
Here you will find my nonfiction - the place for me to share my thoughts with you, keep you posted on upcoming events and allow me to interact.
If you wish to leave a note, use my cartoon quill and ink.
