Shakespeare's Rebel Synopsis

1599. London is on the brink of revolution...But John Lawley - England's finest swordsman - just wants to be left alone to win back the heart of the woman he loves. And to design the fight scenes for the magnificent new Globe theatre. But in order to remain free to help his old friend Will Shakespeare finish the play that threatens to destroy him, John must dodge the Earl of Essex and Robert Cecil - the two men closest to the Queen. John is doomed by his three devils: whisky, women and the Earl of Essex. And despite every effort to avoid the clutches of the Queen's court, John is dragged back into its intrigues and the hopeless war in Ireland.

About C. C. Humphreys

C.C. Humphreys is an actor, playwright, fight choreographer and novelist.‘My first job out of school was as a motorcycle messenger, based in St Giles, where much of Plague and Fire takes place. It was a ghastly slum in 1665, and thousands died horribly there in the Great Plague. And much of this area suffered during The Great Fire of London in 1666. I think many Londoners have a deep-buried memory of the devastating things that have happened to their city. Walking those streets again, it’s not hard to sense the bones just below the paving stones.’...
