Dan Sullivan was the best friend of Olivia Henry when his life was taken in a tragic car accident. Shocked to be on the other side, Dan navigates his way by learning his new role in eternal life. His first assignment is as Olivia’s guardian angel. He has the crucial role of guiding her to her pre-defined destiny. Dan’s death throws Olivia into a tail-spin which causes her to veer way off course. He understands the enormity of the challenge when he hears the mechanism by which he can communicate. He’s only allowed to use signs and symbols to get her attention and cannot interfere with her free-will.

Every time he thinks he’s close, something throws her off track. He’s forced to start over by convincing her to trust in their enduring, unbreakable bond. Olivia can feel Dan’s presence but is still reluctant to believe the messages he’s sending. She is fearful of falling in love again at the risk of losing another soulmate. Can Dan persuade her to trust in his love from afar so she can finally receive the happiness she truly deserves?

Interview with D.D. Marx  
Where do you write?
I felt like goldilocks writing this series. I couldn’t find my perfect spot to be in the zone. I didn’t like to sit at my desk because I work from home and it killed my creativity. Coffee shops are too distracting. I have a big fluffy chair in my room, but it didn’t have any support, so it would hurt my back. Then, finally, with The Dan Diaries, I rented a space at a co-working location called “The Workplace” and it provided the perfect amount of inspiration and comfort.
In today’s tech savvy world most writers use a computer or laptop. Have you ever written parts of your book on paper?
I do not write on paper, but I do keep notes on my phone.  Creativity comes in spurts and at random times, so I need a way to capture it in the moment. I might see something or overhear something that gives me an idea for dialogue or a scene.  When I am ready to sit down and write, those notes get translated into an outline.
Favorite travel spot?
I love to travel but also enjoy switching it up. This way I can experience new places and embark on different adventures.  If I were forced to choose a spot, it would be anywhere tropical with sand, sun, beach and an ice-cold cocktail in my hand.
Favorite dessert?
I am not a huge dessert person. I am the ‘bring me more bread’ or ‘keep the chips and salsa coming’ kind of girl so I am usually way too full by the time I get to dessert.  If pressed, I would enjoy a few bites of key lime pie or a molten chocolate cake.
What’s the funniest thing that ever happened to you?

I’m blessed with so many people in my life that make me laugh. I was out with a cute boy, for the very first time, and I wasn’t twenty steps out of the car and didn’t see the step up into the restaurant and fell flat on my face. I mean, I didn’t brace myself, just dead weight falling to the ground at warp speed.  It broke the ice and we had a belly laugh. Before I got up he was convinced I lost my two front teeth but survived without a scratch. I may not be made of class but I recover well.
