|Mealtimes for William Shakespeare would have looked very much like this, in his large and lively Warwickshire family.|
I thought some of the readers of Raw Light might be interested in today's entry on my alter-ego Victoria Lamb's blog.
Some of you may know that I published the first book in a trilogy about Shakespeare's 'Dark Lady' in hardback earlier this year. It's called The Queen's Secret and is out in paperback in a couple of weeks.
In this first book, William Shakespeare is eleven years old and plays only a very minor role in the story. But he features as a point of view character in the second book, so his life as a child and young man in Stratford upon Avon is uppermost in my mind.
