Dakota Willink is a contemporary romance writer and editor, and the author of The Stone Series. She is a member of Romance Writers of America and a two-time Readers’ Favorite International Book Awards winner. Dakota often says she survived her first publishing with coffee and wine. She’s an unabashed Star Wars fanatic and still dreams of one day getting her letter from Hogwarts. She enjoys spending time with her super-supportive husband and two witty teenagers, her two Labrador Retrievers, and her spoiled rotten cat. During the summer months, she can often be found soaking up the sun on the Great Lakes with her family.
