DANA HOLYFIELD, Louisiana Author & Videographer
After pursuing big dreams in Hollywood, I returned to my roots in Southern Louisiana and decided to write what I knew best; Swamp Living, Swamp Cooking and Swamp Monsters and more swampy things. With my skills in photography and writing, I created my first cookbook, "Swamp Cookin' with the River People" that was published by Ten Speed Press years ago. They also published the sequel, "More Swamp Cooking." My cookbooks have stories with pictures and recipes that introduced the outside world to our unique way of life in the Honey Island Swamp. I also self-published a quirky little cookbook called, "Cajun Sexy Cookin'" years ago that featured women in the outdoors hunting and fishing and cooking their catch. It was one of my most popular cookbooks that ended up winning an award all the way in London England on a major TV network. Besides cookbooks, I am mostly known for my books and videos about the legendary Honey Island Swamp Monster. The Honey Island Swamp mystery has led me to many guest appearances on TV Shows, including: Swamp People, Mysteries at the Museum, Fact or Faked Paranormal Files, Swamp Monsters, Book TV, Fox News' Hannity's America, News with a Twist, WDSU Morning News, to name a few. On a local platform, I was featured in the Go Swamp Louisiana's Northshore St. Tammany Parish Tourist Commission video to talk about the legendary Honey Island Swamp Monster. So, I guess I am the local Swamp Monster authority. I have also written children's books. But, my passion is writing movie screenplays.
My Swamp Cooking Cookbook was reviewed on Book TV, on Local News TV stations and Radio Stations Nationwide when it was first released. I have recently revised it and republished it.
