My next book will be titled ‘Fools and Mortals’.
‘Fools and Mortals’ follows the young Richard Shakespeare, an actor struggling to make his way in a company dominated by his estranged older brother, William. As the growth of theatre blooms, their rivalry – and that of the playhouses, playwrights and actors vying for acclaim and glory – propels a high-stakes story of conflict and betrayal.
The book will be published in the UK on 19 October 2017 and in the US on 9 January 2018.
