Prithee, good friend,

lend me your ears ...


Secret Will is available both as an ebook and as a 420-page paperback.

My name is William Shakespeare, but you can call me Will.  I was born in 1564 in a world very different, yet in many ways not unlike, your own.  You may have heard of me, I knocked out one or two plays in my time, not to mention the odd poem and quite a few sonnets.  People have never stopped arguing about them since. 


Now a worthy fellow named Paul Chapman has come along and written a meticulously researched and very readable book titled Secret Will: How People, Events and a Dancing Horse Inspired Shakespeare.  I think you will like it.

British-born Paul has spent 50 years as a journalist, including working for the BBC World Service in London, as an overseas correspondent for the UK Daily Telegraph, and at The Dominion Post newspaper in Wellington.  Now retired, he lives in New Zealand.  He has watched, read and studied Shakespeare for four decades.
