“If cats have nine lives then I must be one very lucky kitty,” laughed Kathleen D. Ryan author of a new book entitled, 30 Ways I Almost Kicked the Bucket...and the lessons learned. Each chapter of this action-packed, first person narrative reveals the circumstances surrounding yet another nail-biting experience that nearly cost the author her life.
“I've been playing a game of hide and seek with the angel of death since I was old enough to recite the alphabet,” Ryan explained. “In fact, I've probably had more near misses than Evil Knevil, only I'm no dare devil—just an ordinary woman with an extraordinary knack for being in the wrong place at the wrong time!”
The author presents a fascinating look
at thirty mishaps she managed to survive over the years including a life threatening illness, being attacked by a crazed gang member, stalked by a psycho, nearly stomped to death by a horse, and having lightning blow a three-foot hole through her bedroom wall just a few feet from her head.
“Since none of these things have actually killed me yet, at least not permanently, I share the stories and valuable lessons I managed to stumbled away with. I mean, you can't experience this many brushes with death without gaining some fresh perspective,” she asserts. “I hope that by sharing my stories others might be able to laugh in the face of death and avoid some of the life threatening experiences I've gone through.”
The book is currently available as an ebook through Amazon: www.amazon.com/30-Ways-Almost-Kicked-Bucket-ebook/dp/B00GEE3CRE
