My name is Dana Holyfield and I am from Southern Louisiana. I have written and self-published books and magazines about Swamp Living, Swamp Cooking and Swamp Monsters and more swampy things. I have also made documentary films and many promotional videos that you can find on my Youtube Channels. My first published book was a cookbook/storybook with pictures. "Swamp Cookin' with the River People" was published by Ten Speed Press years ago. They also published the sequel, "More Swamp Cooking." My cookbooks introduce the outside world to our unique way of life in the Honey Island Swamp. Besides cookbooks, I am mostly known for making guest appearances on many TV shows that air on the Travel Channel, Discovery, History, and Quest, to talk about the legendary Honey Island Swamp Monster. The shows include: Mysteries at the Museum, Fact or Faked Paranormal Files, America Unearthed, Swamp Monsters. Swamp People, 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 and illustrated a few children's books and other fiction novellas. My true passion is writing movie scripts and making movies. I had the opportunity to produce a movie in Los Angeles that I co-wrote. In my distant past, I was also a model and got to travel to Italy where I spent 3 months in Milan and I also pursued an acting career in Hollywood and had small parts in a TV show and a film. I appeared in a few National commericals as well. I never hit the big time, but I gained a world of experience throughout the years. Even though I loved living in Los Angeles, I eventually became homesick for my family and the way of life in Louisiana, so I returned to my roots and realized that I had the perfect backdrop to continue using my creative ability to tell a story, whether with writing, videos, film or on-camera.
