About Dakota

SELF-PUBLISHED

Dakota Jack is an intriguing contemporary author, poet, and songwriter from Atlanta, Georgia. She wrote and self-published her first book in 2012, entitled, "I'm Not Pregnant, I'm Just Fat...Defeating Depression and Daring to Dream". Originally, the title was published under her birth name, Dedral Treadwell.  It was later republished, in 2017, under the pseudonym- Dakota Jack. Within her debut memoir, Dakota revealed painful things about herself, most probably wouldn't. She was refreshingly bold and transparent.

FEARLESS

Dakota's father gave her the nickname, "Bird", just moments after she was born. It's only fitting that she takes flight  when she writes. Dakota doesn't feel the need to fit inside a box, nor is she afraid to tell her stories- the way she feels they should be told. Because of that,  some of  Dakota's works are inspirational and message driven-  while others, though incredibly entertaining, are better suited for open-minded adults.

REAL

Simply put, Dakota Jack writes books about real-life. Her narratives center around the varying storms & struggles women often encounter, at various stages in life.  Dakota is known to incorporate sensitive subject matter into her works- pertaining to mental health, addiction, infidelity, and sexuality. All in all, her books are short, sweet, emotionally-charged page-turners.

A Poem by Dakota Jack

Sometimes We Lose Our Way

You came to me, in a dream

A week or so to date. 

You had some things, to say to me 

And felt they couldn’t wait. 

At first, I didn’t realize

The person sent was you. 

We talked about our joys and pains 

And all we hoped to do. 

You knew that I had great big dreams

But sometimes felt dismay. 

Cause life is hard. 

It’s not easy. 

Sometimes, we lose our way. 


You told me that, no matter what

Stay focused on my dreams. 

And never ever be discouraged 

Despite how hard it seems. 

With your ambition, I believe

You too, were meant to fly. 

Then days like this, break my heart 

And leave me asking why. 

I know the ups and downs of life 

Sometimes force us to stray. 

Cause life is hard. 

It’s not easy. 

Sometimes, we lose our way. 


The things that I will miss the most

Are laughs that had no end;

Your great big smile, your giving heart

My cousin and my friend. 

I pray you found your way to God

 And didn’t feel alone. 

I pray he understood your pain 

And just welcomed you home. 

No one here, can judge your soul 

It's no one's place to say. 

Cause life is hard. 

Nobody’s perfect. 

Sometimes, we lose our way. 

 

In loving memory of Arius S. Ammon
