Will her valiant quest to secure humanity’s future ultimately succeed, or will it succumb to the forces of destruction?

About the Author

Embracing the path of a writer later in life, his journey has been guided by faith in God and a profound passion for both freedom and science fiction. These influences culminated in his novel, Ithyanna, Last Daughter of Atlantis, Book I: How the World Ended Millennia Ago. This work draws inspiration from his earlier project, the Fanshawe College AFM capstone short film The Last Atlantean (2009), which achieved notable recognition by rising to the rank of 58,504 out of over 1,000,000 films on IMDb’s MOVIEMeter (as of July 25-August 22, 2010). Currently, he is based in London, Ontario, Canada, where he continues to explore and expand upon his storytelling pursuits.

In 2009, while attending Fanshawe College’s postgraduate Advanced Filmmaking (AFM) program, he created an 11-minute short film titled The Last Atlantean. Attempts to leverage this film to enter the film/TV industry proved unsuccessful. However, his father, captivated by The Last Atlantean, urged him to expand it into something greater. Initially dismissive, he reconsidered after repeated failures to break into his chosen profession and with a previous novel.

Inspired by similarities between the myths of Atlantis’ downfall and the biblical Genesis flood story, he envisioned these ancient destruction tales as potentially part of the same event. Noting similar flood legends across various cultures and a prophecy by Jesus in Matthew 24:37, he crafted Ithyanna: Last Daughter of Atlantis Book I: How the World Ended Millennia Ago.

Using these mythological and biblical parallels, he aimed to create a narrative that serves as a commentary on our world today, drawing inspiration from Rod Serling’s approach in The Twilight Zone (1959-1964). The story explores Ithyanna’s journey, her defiance of divine will, and the downfall of Atlantis, paralleling the moral decay described in Noah’s time.

“Ithyanna” has garnered widespread acclaim from readers and critics alike, with Kirkus Reviews praising its gripping narrative and thought-provoking themes. The book has been featured on various review platforms, including Kirkus Reviews, Reedsy Discovery, The Prairies Book Review, and Goodreads, garnering accolades for its originality and depth.

In addition to his literary pursuits, Don Edward Cook has been featured in numerous interviews and podcasts, sharing insights into his creative process and the inspiration behind “Ithyanna.” These include:
