Released by a New York Publisher, ‘Accidental Werewolf’ was the first in a series that introduces quirky heroes and heroines and then forces them to embrace the supernatural through a series of unexpected occurrences.
All the books in the series follow a specific formula. They start with a hapless protagonist that becomes a paranormal creature. They spend the rest of the novel coming to terms with their transformation.
However, despite the chaos, they always find love. The series has several recurring characters. While the individual books follow a similar blueprint, the journeys the characters undertake are different.
Dakota took the traditional route when she published the first few ‘Accidental’ novels. Later on, she decided to become an indie author to take advantage of the freedoms that came with the self-publishing industry.
The author is primarily known for the ‘Accidental’ books because the series is so long. However, her bibliography is quite wide-rating, constituting collections like ‘Polanski Brothers,’ ‘Plum Orchard,’ and ‘Kiss and Hell,’ to mention a few.
Where her writing approach is concerned, Dakota describes herself as a pantser. She discovers the story of each novel while she writes it as opposed to plotting and outlining the individual chapters beforehand. The technique is flawed. Dakota knows this.
On more than one occasion, her stories had fizzled out in the middle of a new book because she only had a vague understanding of the concept when she sat down to write the book. This is the way her novels begin.
Dakota is ready to sit down and write once she has a crazy concept and a title. She doesn’t mind getting stuck along the way because she always finds a way through each obstacle.

Best Dakota Cassidy Books
The Accidental Werewolf: Marty Andrews was normal, a well-adjusted woman working as a sales rep for Bobbi-Sue Cosmetics. A mangy mutt changed everything when it bit her. It wasn’t her fault.
She was walking her teacup poodle when the unexpected happened. Now, the consequences of that bite are manifesting, and they are more disturbing than she could have predicted.
It started with her hair. First, it went from blond to black. And then the hair on her legs exploded. If that wasn’t alarming enough, her mood swings were out of control. She had no hope of keeping her job at Bobbie-Sue Cosmetics.
Fortunately, Keegan Flaherty was waiting around the corner. He had all the answers. Apparently, he was responsible for the bite that turned Marty’s life upside down.
Keegan was a werewolf, and he had pulled Marty into his fraternity. Marty rejected the explanation. Or, at the very least, she tried. It took a kidnapping to open her eyes. Now, Marty must place her life in the hands of a man that makes her drool.
Accidentally Dead: In ‘The Accidental Werewolf,’ Marty, Nina, and Wanda discovered the supernatural world. When Marty became a werewolf, her friends stood by her. They thought they had seen everything the world had to offer.
But then Nina went to the dentist’s office and realized that life had one more surprise for her. Like Marty, it wasn’t Nina’s fault. Her attacker was still under the influence of anesthesia when he bit her.
Now she knows the truth. Vampires are real. She knows this because she is slowly turning into one. She has razor-sharp teeth, incredible hearing, and an insatiable desire for blood.
As a human, Nina was cranky. But as a vampire, she is far worse. At first, Nina was determined to get her revenge on the man that turned her into an unwilling vampire. But then she met Gregori and realized that she couldn’t bring herself to harm the handsome vampire.
More importantly, she was hoping that Gregori had a way of turning her back. As handsome as Gregori was, she was not ready to commit herself to the same man for all eternity.
