New Book by Rising Star Ian Howard Recounts Overcoming Dreaded Diseases Three Times

LIGHTHOUSE POINT, FL (JUNE 13, 2004) — The Lighthouse Press Inc., of Lighthouse Point, Florida announces the release of Gotta Live, a personal account about beating death three times by rising celebrity Ian Howard.

Ian Howard survived two life-threatening bouts with cancer AND encephalitis of the brain, while going on to appear in television’s Miami Vice, a Johnny Depp movie and numerous magazines articles.

“In comparison to the life Ian has lived, perhaps the least important element of his resume is our publishing his autobiography, Gotta Live,” said Lighthouse Press publisher Ron Richard. “But for the rest of the world, this book is an achievement of hope and inspiration. Ian’s book is not only a story of victory over the trials of life, but also a story of victory over death--three times.”

The Lighthouse Press has received laudatory reviews of advanced copies of Gotta Live from the likes of former Dallas Cowboy quarterback Roger Staubach, Producer Dick Clark, fashion mogul Calvin Klein and others.

Gotta Live is now available through bookstores—both online and bricks-and-mortar—everywhere. For more information, readers and booksellers are invited to visit the Publisher’s website at and the author’s website at
