“I’ve always been a creative at heart.”


Best known for her debut novel, The Descendant,
Dakota Cook is a novelist
who specializes in the
Young Adult genre.

She began concocting stories from a very young age—often getting herself into trouble. As she grew, she learned to harbor her story-telling imagination and turn it into readable content. She penned her first full-length novel at the age of 18 and has been writing ever since. Her concentrations revolve around Young Adult, Science Fiction, and Murder Mysteries, but she has recently been dabbling with the Paranormal genre as well. 

Her hobbies include learning to play new instruments,
singing at church on the side, and—of course—reading. 

She currently resides in Albuquerque with her
husband, Michael, and her dog, Archimedes.
