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.

Called to Serve

Join brave American men and women first responders in sixteen inspiring tales of heroism.

There is no question that it has been a rough few years for America and around the world. But along with news of the COVID-19 pandemic, new variants, wildfires, etc., there also emerged stories of heroism, courage, and what it truly means to be an American.

Called to Serve: The Inspiring, Untold Stories of America’s First Responders tells sixteen stories of America’s unsung heroes. These brave police officers, firefighters, and emergency medical professionals risk their lives every day, not knowing if it will be their last. Readers will get an inside look into their lives on and off the job, often revealing the challenges and triumphs of keeping us healthy and safe.

The book takes the reader on a very personal journey of what it is like to handle life and death situations and the toll it takes on first responders. From policing drug infested neighborhoods, pulling firefighters’ bodies from the ruble at Ground Zero and letting families cry on your shoulder after their loved one was murdered—to being an Elvis impersonator to raise money for fallen firefighters—these remarkable individuals are America’s finest. Called to Serve will give every American a deep appreciation of what first responders’ lives are really like, and their unwavering dedication to serve and protect every American.

"While most flee the sound of danger, there are those who run to the roar. They are the best among us. With undeniable qualities not often seen since the time of our great-grandparents, first responders exist as living remnants of the Greatest Generation. Unasked are questions like how or why or when or where…a simple YES is their only response when Called to Serve."

Andy Andrews New York Times bestselling author of The Traveler’s Gift and The Noticer; founder of WisdomHarbour.com
