Dakota Wilster

historical fiction for children, young adults, and people who like Vikings

Bringing History to Life

Dakota Wilster currently writes from Pensacola, Florida, where she lives with her husband and a growing graveyard of house plants. She most enjoys bringing history to life through stories.

She is finally, finally finished with her MFA from Chatham University, and you can now find her holed up in her air-conditioned apartment trying to recreate the Nordic environment in Florida so that she can finish her novel about Vikings. On the side, or when she can’t stand to spend another paragraph with the Vikings, she writes young adult and middle grade fiction, poetry, short stories, essays in academia, nature, and creative non-fiction. She also blogs, creates feature articles, and has some experience in technical writing.
