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 the Babington Plot: 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.

Combining the whimsy of William Goldman's The Princess Bride with the swashbuckling panache of Raphael Sabatini, and inspired by the Hope/Crosby Road Movies, this rollicking novel takes solace in knowing that these events surely never happened, while secretly hoping that they did.

Praise from readers:

★★★★★ - "Anyone who enjoys the down-to-earth aspects of Shakespeare will love this book, the puns, bon mots, double entendres, and witticisms fly fast and furious throughout. His Majesty's Will is a book worth savoring more than once."

★★★★★ - "Her Majesty's Will is an Elizabethan buddy comedy/drama/romance/adventure. Like ya do. It's Hope and Crosby meets Errol Flynn and Douglas Fairbanks. It belongs on the shelf alongside The Princess Bride."

★★★★★ - "David Blixt is on the top of his game with this romp. A rollicking good read."
