1593, Elizabethan England: In a turbulent time of wars, famine, and religious persecution, Christopher Marlowe struggles to balance his life as England’s most popular playwright with his duties as a government spy.
Suddenly, when he falls under suspicion of atheism, a capital crime, Marlowe fears his many powerful enemies have launched a conspiracy to have him executed...
With only a few days to clear his name, he quickly enlists the aid of a young William Shakespeare – one of the few friends he can still trust. Together, they race through Marlowe’s tangled life of crime, espionage, and noble connections to expose the conspiracy and save him from the hangman’s noose.
But will anything save a man as troubled as Marlowe?

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
It is based on the dramatic life and death of Christopher Marlowe. Not only was Marlowe a famous playwright, but he was most probably a spy, and a bit of a criminal, too. The murder-mystery surrounding his untimely death is fascinating (he was stabbed in a tavern while in the presence of several espionage operatives).

Q: Why did you go indie?
I like the freedom it offers for both my writing and my career. It allows me to be fully responsible for my life as a writer.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
Two of my favorite authors in the historical genre are Ken Follett (always a solid entertainer), and Robert Harris (his series on ancient Rome is excellent).
