In this interview D.G. Elizabeth talks to Marta Walsh about the inspiration behind her romantic comedy book Diary of Dating, why she can relate to Diary of Dating’s main character, gives advice to all single women, reveals some of her biggest passions in life, and plans for Diary of Dating book 2 and even a script in the making! Find out which female celebrity she would pick for the main role…

What inspired you to write your book: Diary of Dating?
I wanted to give women a more realistic feel into the dating world and let them know they are not alone out there. We all have had (most of us anyway) more crummy dates then good ones! Over and above that fact is that I love to write!

How would you describe Diary of Dating? What’s the book’s premise?
Diary of Dating,   is a heartfelt, thought provoking, romantic comedy. It takes a contemporary look into the world of dating through the eyes of a beautiful single woman, as she keeps a dairy of her dating mishaps and adventures. She´s confident, has no inhibitions, embraces her sexuality and yet…she´s still single. Dating athletes, lawyers and every ‘Joe’ in between, her search for love takes her through a string of hilariously bad dates. Along the way she learns crucial lessons about what it is she really wants in a relationship and in life. It is a journey through the silly, sexy, playful world of dating and her quest to find Mr. Right.

New York City was a big character in Sex and the City. Which city plays a big role in Diary of Dating and do you find some cities tougher for dating than other?
Los Angeles and New York are both mentioned in the book. I think dating can be tough in any city. It seems that so many around the world, city to city, are looking for that one person to share their life with.

How much of yourself is reflected in Diary of Dating’s main character?
Being that I’m single I can certainly relate to the main character in the book, there’s no doubt about that.

If you had to make Diary of Dating the book into a film or a TV Series, which actors or actresses would you pick for the leading roles?
Cameron Diaz could pull off the character in the book. She’s silly, sassy, smart, sexy, kind, she’s also very witty, and has a great goofy side to her in some of her roles, and that’s just whom the character is in the book! Eva Mendes or Sanaa Lathan could pull it off as well. Both are great actors, yet edgy.

What message did you intend to give all single women out there through your book?
To not give up in finding love, to open your heart and dance in the rain when the opportunity is presented and enjoy getting your hair wet!

D.  G.  Elizabeth

Diary of Dating

What is your philosophy about beauty?
As cliché as it is, true beauty comes from within, someone who has the gift to make people feel comfortable in any situation, it’s icing on the cake if someone has the looks to go with their inner beauty,  kindness goes extremely far, inner beauty undoubtedly is the best kind of beauty there is! People who possess a true inner beauty, their eyes shine a little more,  their soul illuminates, their vibe is just different ~

What is your favorite city in the world?
I’ve been blessed to have traveled to some amazing places, St. Barth, The French Rivera, St. Tomas, the Dominican Republic, the Bahamas, the Caribbean,  Puerto Rico, Cabo, and every time I’m some place, I always say "Oh, this is my favorite place". 

What other passions do you have besides writing?
Chase and Fletcher, the two greatest guys I know!!! As a breast cancer survivor, I am also involved in a non- profit organization called "Package of Prevention" based in Los Angeles, it’s dedicated to educating all individuals regardless of age, race, gender, and income level about cancer prevention and the importance of early detection.

What’s next for Danielle Elizabeth?
The sequel of Dairy of Dating, "Diary of Dating 2", is in the works, a script is being written. Then hopefully film and onward and upward!

It was a pleasure to interview Danielle you can find out more about her at her official website: www.diaryofdatingfromabeautifulsinglewoman.com or purchase the book at Amazon.com

  8. I did read the book and find myself going back to it every once in a while. It has proven itself as a manual that is worthy of women and men alike. Women can get inspiration from it, along with some witty comebacks if they find themselves in similar situations. Guys can use it as a template on how NOT to behave on a date… that is if they want to make it to a second date.
