William B. Taylor


William Taylor was born and raised in Southern Ontario, believing he was 100% English/Canadian until he began to journey into his ancestral past. As he began his journey, many historical figures began to appear in his direct paternal lineage; a lot of these ancestors turned out to be quite surprising. Some of the surprises included a direct bloodline to Scottish and English nobility, but even bigger surprises included finding very well known American family members, dating back to the Puritans who first arrived in Massachusetts in the early 1600's. From this Puritan bloodline, William discovered a "who's-who" of US history: Revolutionary War heroes, political figures, writers, inventors, famous businessmen and celebrities.

Drawing on the historical background of his paternal family, and his love for story telling and mysteries, the fictional novel "Bloodlines: Cove Point Manor" was penned, and is being followed up with a planned "Bloodlines" series (Bloodlines: Of Noble Blood will be released in the summer of 2017).

William currently lives in Brooklin, Ontario and, when not writing or researching his ancestry, works as an executive for an international manufacturing firm headquartered in Toronto, Canada.
