MacTrump, the new President of the United Fiefdoms, has come to rule much to the distress of supporters of the former President, Banquo O’Bama. He thinks it will be a simple job, and that the people will beg for his legacy to continue. His first 2 years are not without bumps as he fires many people, like Stephen Bannox, causing Spicero to hide behind potted plants. He even ends up being investigated by Sir Robert of MacMueller! Whatever shall the greatest President of the United Fiefdoms to have ever lived do or tweet? One hopes he will listen to Banquo’s ghost or the spirits of the other presidents. Do you think he will?

License to Quill
Paperback | Kindle Edition
by Jacopo della Quercia
St. Martin’s Griffin | Macmillan
Release date: December 15th, 2015

History says that Christopher Marlowe, a playwright who influenced William Shakespeare, was stabbed to death while embroiled in legal trouble, over words that may or may not have been his. But what if that was an act? What if this was the 16th Century version of the witness protection program? William Shakespeare takes over for that influential bard, and finds himself mixed up in The Gunpowder Plot (a group tried to assassinate King James, the King of England, Scotland, and Ireland). Guy Fawkes commissions him to write a play about “the abuse of power” set in Scotland, to rile things up a bit.

License to Quill by Jacopo della Quercia takes you through an exciting historical mystery – one in which you expect Shakespeare to utter, “Shaken… not stirred.”
