“There was Elizabeth the First of England, in all her virginal glory, staring in complete astonishment at my fragrantly flushing lavatory and William Shakespeare, the writer, the genius, the bard of Stratford-upon-Avon, crumpled in sodden heap in my bath with a look of utter dejection that was positively comical.”

S. Lynn Scott’s debut novel is a funny, moving and very or

What would you do if you walked into your pantry one day and found Queen Elizabeth I sitting there, as prim and proper as only she could be, and sitting on a bag of potatoes at that – King Edward potatoes? And then, a late night visit to the loo brings you face-to-face with, the Tudor queen yet again, but also a very famous playwright, William Shakespeare. Sounds mad? Well, when you think about it, Ally was a little mad. And, yet at the same time, she was also saner than the rest of the world. A ...more

I knew from the very first page that I was going to like this book. It was very engaging and I didn't want to put it down. I liked the colorful characters and the twists and turns of the story. I wish for friends like Karl and Erich. I lived vicariously through all the characters for the time it took me to read this book. It was fun and sad at the same time. A very good read. ...more

With my goldfish attention span, I'm always on the lookout for sharp, robust prose without all of the flab and political correctness of many of today's novels. "Elizabeth, William… and Me" hits the mark in every respect - a fascinating work laced with cutting humour throughout, and yet, sensitively written - sometimes bittersweet, poignant. There are so many intricacies and surprising facets weaving through the fabric of this book that it will take me another read or two (by no means a chore) to ...more

The premise of 'Elizabeth, William & Me' was so unique I couldn't resist checking it out, despite the fact I almost always opt for gritty U.S. crime thrillers! What I thought this story would be, however, was not what I expected and - please forgive the cliché - it turned out to be a real page-turner! The writing flows so beautifully and paints such a vivid picture of Ally and her hilarious experiences with these most famous of historical characters, I become utterly engrossed and desperate to u ...more

What's a woman to do -- one day Elizabeth I and William Shakespeare appear in Ally's kitchen. Ally embarks on a voyage of discovery. Elizabeth I insists on visiting Elizabeth II and Will appears to be along for the ride. So starts a wild ride from the Midlands to London. It's a voyage of discovery for Ally as Elizabeth and Will lead to self-discovery and acceptance.

Story is well paced and characters are believable.

The Author
S. Lynn Scott began her adult life determined to take the theatrical world by storm. The theatrical world, it turned out, wasn’t quite so keen to embrace her as she had expected it would be, and so, nothing daunted, she successfully turned her undoubted talents to Terpsichorean entertainment in dark, exotic places. There she learned that a jewelled bra and a very large feathered fan are
