I have personally been there, seen, held, driven, sailed, fired or otherwise engaged myself in the activity of any given chapter at some point in my life.

The ever-changing governments and instability of global relations force many unassuming onlookers to become engaged in a brutal war they didn’t start.

Inspired by events in his life, Bill Taylor’s novel, “Being Lucky Can Be the Death of You” (published by AuthorHouse), centers on the life of a Naval petty officer from his quiet start in a small town to his entanglement in a web of international affairs. Taylor’s story of survival and resourcefulness spans from the 1940’s to 1970’s, a time of civil unrest in many parts of the world.

“I have personally been there, seen, held, driven, sailed, fired or otherwise engaged myself in the activity of any given chapter at some point in my life,” says Taylor. “Using those experiences, I was able to bring the characters to life as I wrote the book.”

Bouncing from Jamaica to Cuba to Columbia, the novel explores the unstable conditions of the Latin American countries and affects it had on the people of the time. Through the character’s struggle for survival, Taylor shares valuable lessons of trust, loyalty and generosity during a time when those traits were hard to find.
