The Art of Derek Dohren
This page provides a link to my writing activities.
My most recent work is my second poetry collection, entitled 'Wasp in My Cockpit', released in November 2020. It follows hard on the heels of my debut collection, 'Everything Rhymes with Orange' which hit the shelves in July 2019. Both volumes were published by Black Eyes Publishing UK.
Poetry may not seem such an obvious progression from the prose of the semi-autobiographical 'The Cats of the River Darro' (published 2012), but the theme of self-exploration continues.
Further below you can find links to my short stories and poems page and to other places around the Internet where traces of me have not yet been fully erased.
Everything Rhymes with Orange is my first poetry collection. It was published in July 2019 by Black Eyes Publishing UK.
The Cats of the River Darro was written in 2011/2012 and is wonderfully illustrated by the talented artist Natasha Phillips. You can read more information about it here...
In 2004 I completed the authorised biography of former Liverpool FC manager Roy Evans. This was a labour of love and I was able to draw on much of the work I had done with my related web sites in the late 1990s and early 2000s. You can read more about it here ...

A collection of miscellaneous writings.
The Granada Insider was a monthly magazine aimed at providing information for visitors to the city. I had a series of articles published here.
In 1997 I was the founder, chief writer and editor of shankly.com, the world's first website dedicated to the great Liverpool manager Bill Shankly. I set up other websites in its wake, each one paying homage to other individuals of that special group of coaches associated with Shankly at Liverpool. Two of them still survive though not entirely in original form.
Much of my other writing from this period was absorbed into lfchistory.net when I was forced to sell the websites.
