About Dakota

SELF-PUBLISHED

image16

Dakota Jack is an intriguing, contemporary author 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

image17

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

image18

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.
