I am an author, a consultant
and a philanthropist.

My books include non-fiction works focusing on wounded warriors, veterans and their caregivers as well as political and business memoirs.

I'm one of the lucky ones who loves what I do. I am an author, president of Guerin Literary Services, Inc. and a communications consultant whose work has taken me across the country and has introduced me to people who work tirelessly to make our country a better place. Transforming their stories into words on the page allows me to share their tales of strength, determination and inspiration with you and to support their missions. Whether it's lessons learned growing up or hardships faced later in life, the American spirit is alive and well and it is that spirit that I take into all of my ventures, whether writing or promoting the many organizations doing good today.

The Eagle on My Arm

In October 1967, eighteen-year-old Patrick Bradley enlisted in the US Army and was later deployed to North Vietnam as a special operator with missions to kill high-value targets. Combat left him physically and psychologically wounded, as it does many veterans, and Bradley struggled to adjust when he returned home. He seemed destined for military prison after an altercation in which he broke a superior officer's jaw, but his life changed forever when a psychiatrist recommended a unique path for healing...

"The Eagle On My Arm! What an amazing and uplifting story! It has been chronicled countless times how PTSD so often severely affects individuals who encounter traumatic events in life. Dava Guerin has woven the life story of Patrick Bradley into a beautiful and fascinating one from countless difficulties and roadblocks through the redemptive and unlikeliness of encounters with nature and wildlife. Inspiring from beginning to end, each chapter was riveting and immensely readable. I simply could not put this book down!!"
