HER MAJESTY'S WILL
Before he was famous, he was a fugitive. Before he wrote of humanity, he lived it. Before he was the Bard of Avon, he was a spy.
A very poor spy.
England, 1586. Swept up in the skirts of a mysterious stranger, Will Shakespeare becomes entangled in a deadly and hilarious misadventure as he accidentally uncovers an attempt to murder Queen Elizabeth herself. Aided by the mercurial wit of Kit Marlowe, Will enters London for the first time, chased by rebels, spies, his own government, his past, and a bear.
Through it all he demonstrates his loyalty and genius, proving himself to be - HER MAJESTY'S WILL.
I loved Her Majesty's Will, a delightful romp through Elizabethan England. When Will Shakespeare and Kit Marlowe stumble onto a plot to assassinate Queen Elizabeth, the fun is non-stop, an irresistible mix of suspense, surprises, and humor I just hope we get to see this zany team again.

I LOVE this book! I'm laughing and on the edge of my seat and turning the e-pages so fast, I'm
gonna fry my iPad.
EVE OF IDES
The night before his assassination at the hands of conspirators, Julius Caesar attended a feast. With him were Brutus, Cassius, and Antony. During the meal, Caesar was asked what he thought was the best way to die. Caesar answered, 'What does it matter, so long as it's quick?'
Based on history and the works of Shakespeare, Eve Of Ides reveals the unexplored relationship between the main players of the age - Caesar, Brutus, and Antony. History was never so alive.
TOMORROW, & TOMORROW
by David Blixt & Janice L Blixt
A collection of short essays on Shakespeare's 'Macbeth' by theatrical husband and wife team David and Janice L Blixt. David Blixt is an actor, director, and author, penning such novels as THE MASTER OF VERONA and HER MAJESTY'S WILL. Jan Blixt is the Artistic Director of the Michigan Shakespeare Festival and Executive director of A Crew Of Patches Theatre Company, a Shakespearean repertory troupe in Chicago. They have played the lead roles in Macbeth more times than they can count, and over the last dozen years developed some very strong opinions regarding the nature and production of the cursed Scottish Play.
ORIGIN OF THE FEUD
The essays in this collection are based on my theatrical experience. I've been incredibly lucky to work with some of the best directors and performers of Shakespeare in the world. To them I can say only thanks, and thanks.
