Author Lexi Curtiss didn’t set out to write a women’s fiction novel about reinventing oneself. The plot for her provocative novel, The Seduction Clause, first came to her in 2004. At the time she penned a first draft, but it lacked the substance, style and grit she felt was necessary to do her story justice.

Over the next 14 years, Lexi turned her attention to building a marketing career, predominately in the technology sector. This experience laid the foundation for the promotional initiatives she would undertake publicizing her own brand.

At age forty-seven, Lexi Curtiss decided to leave corporate America to pursue her dream of writing full-time. Over the next two years, she worked with a Tony Robbins peak performance coach to stay focused on finishing her novel. She also sharpened her promotional skills participating in leadership retreats and mastermind groups hosted by the marketing gurus behind the Chicken Soup for the Soul phenomenon.

Lexi Curtiss always intended The Seduction Clause to be more than a summer read. The women’s fiction author poured her passion for the written word onto the page to instill the message that midlife isn’t the crisis society makes it out to be and that it’s never too late to make one’s goals a reality. For Lexi Curtiss, The Seduction Clause isn’t a story about a woman’s morality gone awry. It’s about the strength that lies within all of us, the risks we take, and the rules we break to achieve our dreams.
