About Me



Hi, I’m Dakota Duncan.  Welcome to my home on the web!  About me graphic 1

Please, come on in and stay for a while.  Think of my front page as my entryway, the blog as my living room, and this About Me page is probably most like a closet, or a junk drawer.  The contents should reveal something about me that you didn’t already know from looking around elsewhere.

I’m 51 years old, have two really great kids (Kelton, 16 and Kaylen, 13) and a wife who I have known since high school, but we only got together a little over 8 years ago.  I went to a funky liberal arts school for undergraduate work, and many, many years later decided it would be fun to go to law school.  (I know; I have a warped sense of fun.)  I am a lawyer, but that is not what I do for a living, or who I am.  Storytelling and art are way more fun!

I’ve known most of my life that a job is not who a person is, and also that any job I could have would not be what I should be doing with my life.  Unfortunately, it has taken me a long time to do anything with that knowledge.  I knew I wanted to write, to tell stories, to make things – TO CREATE!

So, that brings us to now.  I’m currently involved with a variety of projects, from creating art for apps, to working on an experimental comic, and most exciting of all – I am working on a graphic novel starring an amazing teenage girl and her endangered species friends.  Did I mention there are superpowers?

I am really interested both in wildlife and conservation of our natural world. This novel will be a chance to highlight those things in a way that is fun and meaningful, plus have a strong female protagonist, which my daughter has been advising me about since before I had the first sketch down on paper!

Look around, see what I’m up to, and if you’d like to stay in touch, please sign up for my mailing list. I’ll be sure to give my subscribers a heads up on a special deal just before my book is released, as well as other cool stuff I find to share related to comics, endangered species, and conservation.
