Esteemed Business Author Dan Burns ("The First Sixty Seconds: Win the Job Interview Before It Begins") Releases His Debut Novel, "Recalled to Life", via Eckhartz Press


Chicago, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/30/2013 -- When a man meets his idol like Dan Burns did in 2003 (legendary author Ray Bradbury), and that idol gives him career advice, you can be assured it will be followed. Bradbury asked Burns if he was a writer, and Burns, a successful businessman and entrepreneur at the time, admitted it was only his dream. “Just do it,” Bradbury advised. Burns took his idol’s advice, and is now not only a published business writer, he’s a novelist.

In his debut novel “Recalled to Life”, Burns tells a wonderful father-son tale from the point of view of both father and son through the character of Chicago architect Peter O’Hara. Peter had a plan, a blueprint, for how he wanted to build his life. He almost had it all. But life and fate do not consider such plans. An unbelievable and unplanned event sets off a domino effect of repercussions that turn Peter’s life upside down, pushing him to his limits and causing him to re-evaluate everything he thought was important.
