I like books, second-hand furniture & writing poems.

About me.

Originally from sunny Blackpool, I now live and work in Manchester. I’m currently working as a freelance copywriter and occasionally assist with book events, a job sadly stunted by the pandemic.

As well as writing about and reviewing books in various places, I also co-host Up North Books, a podcast that celebrates books from the North of England.

I am many things, but first and foremost I am a reader. My house is stacked with books and I’m always on the look out for new things to read, especially books from underrepresented groups. You can read more about my reading intentions here.

I’m starting to find time to get creative again so I’m hoping to document that process here too.

Publishing peeps: please get in touch! I’m always happy to receive proofs for reviews on here and on social media.

    1. Hello! Thank you so much, I appreciate your comments! Hopefully will be more to come soon ☺️


  2. Just wanted to say thanks for finding my little blog, and now that I’ve found yours, and touched that little follow button, being an avid follower of history, I guess I’ll have to be coming back here to see what else you have to offer. And you can’t even put me off by writing poetry, because I like that also. 🙂

  3. Thanks for liking my most recent post about U.S. and Cuba. As you can see from “About this Blog” on dwkcommentaries.com, I was up at Oxford University, 1961-1963, and have written posts about that. Cheers!

  4. I should have mentioned that my blog (dwkcommentaries.com) includes many posts about history, primarily Britain and its American colonies, the American Revolutionary War and U.S. railroads in the early 20th century.
