I've just agreed with The History Press to write a biography of Sir William Davenant, the godson (and probably natural son) of William Shakespeare.
The provisional publication date will be February 2016 - just in time for the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death. And it looks like it'll be published in paperback, which is good.
I really enjoyed researching and writing about Davenant for Who Killed William Shakespeare? He's a sadly neglected and unjustly maligned character. In short, I like him.
And I have a plan to approach this biography in a rather unusual way. So keep tuned to this channel, readers - I'll be posting updates every now and then.
