Shakespeare Solved ®


Shakespeare Solved ® is a forthcoming series of novels that covers the Bard's entire life and work.

These novels solve the mysteries surrounding Shakespeare by transporting us back in time, to walk in his shoes, and see his world through his eyes.

Only when we see Shakespeare in his original historical context can we understand what his plays and poems really mean.

This blog explains some of my ideas and discoveries, to prepare for this series of novels.

Shakespeare and Orlando Bloom


Happy Birthday Orlando Bloom!

Wouldn’t he be great in some Shakespeare?




I saw him as Romeo in 2013, and he was great. I thought the play should have not had a modern setting, but other than that I thought the production was good, and that he should definitely do more Shakespeare.

He would be great in any number of roles, such as Henry V, Coriolanus, and I think he would make a great Petruchio in Taming of the Shrew. I would love to see him as Mark Antony, in Antony and Cleopatra, too.

But even more than that, I would love to see him in my series of Shakespeare Solved films.

He obviously enjoys playing in period films, and period costumes, so why not the Elizabethan/Jacobean periods?

Whenever I see him, I think of Henry Wriothesley, Earl of Southampton, who was one of Shakespeare’s greatest friends and most loyal patrons. And oddly enough, it was for Southampton that Shakespeare wrote Romeo and Juliet.

Orlando Bloom would make a great Southampton, whose character is very prominent in my Shakespeare Solved versions of the plays.




What do you think?
