About the author:
Despite having spent most of my life in Surrey and Oxfordshire, I now live in Somerset, within an hour's drive of the villages where two of my great-great-great-grandparents were born. I have worked in a wide range of libraries in my time, but am in fact a thwarted medievalist with a strong arts background.

I have been writing fiction for over thirty years, exploring the lives of people who are on the margins in one way or another, and how the power of love and language can break down the walls that we build round ourselves.

The Peacock's Eye
 

Authored by Jay Lewis Taylor

Philip Standage - half-Italian, Catholic, Kit Marlowe's last lover - is one of the Admiral's Men, the company that rivals Shakespeare's. Once Nick Hanham wheedles his way in to the Rose theatre, Philip even has an apprentice to share his secure life. Secure, that is, until he is caught up in Sir Robert Cecil's plans for the future of England, and more than England.

The last years of Elizabeth's reign gleam light and dark like a coin spinning beside a flame: wealth and dirt, glory and revolt, high poetry and bloody murder. In this uncertain world nothing is what it seems, least of all men, least of all love. Who can Philip rely on? And if he makes the wrong choice, who can save him?
