What if William Shakespeare had been a

Time Travelling Wizard? 

The Spellbinding Chronicles of Wizard's Thatch series of books includes: The Other Doctor; The Pirate Queen; The Pumpkin Father; Extreme Croquet; The Great Wizarding Railway; William Shakespeare Vampire Hunter; Alfred's Cookies; Grandfather Frost; The Christmas Wish; The Clockwork Wizard and the Wytchery.

Many things are written about the lost years of William Shakespeare.

Scholars wonder how a 14 year old youth managed to learn enough about the wider world, politics, military strategy and history in order to pen such mighty works as Antony and Cleopatra, Hamlet and Macbeth. They wonder where he travelled to; whether or not he became an actor or who he might have studied under. They contemplate endlessly how he learned everything he needed to know to become the world's greatest ever playwright. 

The true story of how he came by this knowledge had never been revealed.For over 400 years the "Lost years of William Shakespeare" have been just that...  Lost that is, until now.......

It's the oldest temptation, right?  Not gold, or the power that it can buy; not love nor the deep drumming fires of passion - what we can never resist is knowledge. Not just any knowledge either, oh no, but the secret hidden knowledge of the ancients. A knowledge as seductive and treacherous as a Will o'the Wisp glimmering through dark forest branches.

At least that's what the Chronicles of Wizard's Thatch would have us believe. Not that I believe everything that they say which is why I keep my own records. But they're good stories never the less, and I love stories.  Besides, whether or not knowledge is the oldest temptation, it's beyond doubt one of the most dangerous - spellbinding in the full, old, traditional sense of the word.

To learn more about the Chronicles and read my tales for yourself, just browse through the pages of this website. But beware... you might just leave with more questions than you can shake a stick at - that is if you ever leave there at all, or you can find a stick of course.  Personally, I always know where my stick is - you might have to draw something one day.

By the way, I may have forgotten to explain who I am.  I am the travelling companion of the world's greatest time travelling wizard, Dr Thaddeus Bombay. Companion and Chronicler, as I write down all of his adventures.  My name? That's the easy part. 

My name is Will Shakespeare, but all my friends call me Will.

Here you'll learn about the adventures of the world's greatest time traveling wizard and his friends, as they explore hidden realms and dark secrets of twistory using every gift at their disposal - including magic!


It's where stories of the original wizarding world come alive....
Wizard's Thatch is a small market town and parish in West Somerset, England, situated on the Bristol Channel coast just northwest of Taunton with a population somewhere in the region of 8,786, mostly of non magical folk.  Of course most folk don't realise just how magical a place Wizard's Thatch really is, as they just see the everyday world around them. But if you look a little closer, there's a hint on just about every street corner.  Wizard's Thatch is also home to one of the top public schools in the country, the Wizard's Thatch Academy a real life School of Magic presided over by the indomitable Rowenta Di Marco, one of the strangest characters you will ever meet.

So, welcome to the Enchanting World of Wizard's Thatch, we hope you enjoy your visit and that you take time to explore a little of what we have to offer .... it really is, where magic begins.....
