BOOK RELEASE--Pairs With Life by John Taylor

S For Story/10432714
What makes you genuinely happy? Is it money, love or the constant pursuit of something that's always just out of reach?

TEMPLE, Texas - s4story -- Forty-eight-year-old Corbett Thomas, a one-hit wonder of the 90s, now works as the lead sommelier at Napa Valley's hippest restaurant. Set to become one of the few Master Sommeliers in the world, Corbett self-destructs during his final exam, ruining his last chance at capturing the stardom and adoration he got a taste for in his youth.

When billionaire game designer, Brogan Prescott, asks Corbett to consult on a major vineyard acquisition, Corbett sees it as a shot at redemption, until he learns of Brogan's ridiculous vision of a virtual-reality, Woke Ant Colony Winery. Disgusted, Corbett decides to buy the vineyard himself and preserve its magic and history. Cashless, clueless, and with his reputation in tatters, Corbett enlists the help of his bass-player-turned-lawyer Seamus O'Flaherty, who may have finally lost his stomach for Corbett's bad ideas; his uber-rational daughter Remy, who wants Corbett to uncork some family secrets he'd rather leave in the cellar; and Sydney Cameron, whose sudden appearance in Corbett's life may repair his heart or shatter it forever.

But if Corbett can get out of his own way long enough to purchase the vineyard first, he'll be faced with the hardest decision of his life: take the fame and fortune he desperately craves, or save the soul of the valley he loves so much.

"This story has that life lesson of, "it's never too late to start over" embedded into it. It's a great read that you won't be able to put down."
-Derra Nicole (Award Winning Author of Slumberland)

"John Taylor's debut novel offers a hilarious look into the Napa Valley wine scene from the perspective of a self-involved sommelier who can't seem to catch a break--though it's mostly self-inflicted."
-Wining with Mel (Award Winning Certified Sommelier, Napa Valley Wine Advocate, and Author of Wining With Mel)

John Taylor has been writing about wine since 2012, but his meanderings on life began way before that. Born and raised in San Diego, California, John moved to Los Angeles in 1982 to pursue dreams of screenwriting and filmmaking. He attended the University of Southern California, where he majored in Shattered Dreams and False Hopes, with a minor in Getting Gut Punched By Reality. After being handed a degree in Journalism in 1987 as a consolation prize, John dove into a career in music. Because getting gutpunched just isn't painful enough. John is the author of three novels, including the aptly-titled Pairs With: Life, which will be released by Hurn Publications in September 2020.
