Beggars Can’t Be Choosier

D.W. Wilkin

Mr. Wilkin, the author, is a student of the English Regency. He has written several books and we can expect more to come this year and in the future. A student of history, Mr. Wilkin graduated with a bachelors in history from UCLA. In later years he continued his studies and applied himself as a re-enactor of history.  

A member of several societies that pursue the study of history through reenacting, Mr. Wilkin is a well known figure in these circles covering history from the middle ages to the present

Along the way, Mr. Wilkin became a teacher of dance from these former times. Several of those dances from prior periods of history that are covered and mentioned in his novels are spelled out at the Regency Assembly Press website.

After his first novel, The End of the World, a short interview was published with Mr. Wilkin. Mr. Wilkin writes in several disciplines, but maintains that writing Regencies is his favorite. 

Beggars Can’t Be Choosier is Mr. Wilking’s 5th Regency endeavor, though you might find some similarity in his other work as well. Here in Beggars classic tropes are used. The penniless man needing to marry wealthily to see to his family legacy (shades of Downton Abbey yet a very real occurence often in the Regency and before.) But added to this motif, is drama as riveting as any present day conflict.

Reviews have shown that Mr. Wilkin has created a successful piece with a  light hand and care to details. Enjoy Beggars Can’t Be Choosier and see.
