There are not many African-Americans or women in the Social Science Fiction, Occult Fiction, Fantasy, and Dark Comedy genres. However, they have been a passion of Dakarai Noshell Yuko's for as long as she can remember. She has an affinity for writing multicultural stories with realistic characters and strong female leads, as well as unconventional poetry. 
D. K. N. Yuko put together The Dakaverse, a dark-yet-hilarious compilation of many of her stories and projects. The Dakaverse is a rich, fully-connected universe filled with insane and interesting characters, many related through ancestry, reincarnation, or family. The stories take place in four fictional cities: Plumesworthe, Ponderer's Point, Pensburg, and Tellurium Ridge. Each area has its own distinct social climate, which affects the story and the characters from that city. Many of the titles are available in graphic novel form.
Yuko also incorporates Veclage Art in many of her graphic novels and book covers. Veclage Art is an expressive art form created by using layered and textured collages of vector clip art.
