"You are not my typewriter,
but you could be my demon,
moving forward through the flaming doors."
— "War on War" by Wilco

I couldn't decide if I wanted to write about Hamilton or write about books. I chose both.

Not My Typewriter is my Internet home to share book reviews, ramblings, and photographs, mostly focusing on the city I call home, and the city I love, Hamilton.

A little bit about me:

Jessica Rose is a writer, editor, and reviewer who has written for publications across Canada. Her book reviews have been appeared in magazines, including Quill and Quire, Room, Ricepaper, This, and the Humber Literary Review. She also covers Hamilton's literary scene in Hamilton Magazine. Jessica is a senior editor at the Hamilton Review of Books and a founding editor of The Inlet. She has close to ten years of experience in educational publishing and is a former board and committee member of gritLIT: Hamilton’s Readers and Writers Festival. She recently took over the role of books editor at This magazine.
