“Bold, sizzling, and candidly narrated, My whorizontal Life is the first book in An Escort’s Tale series by Sephe Haven, a memoir that covers the author’s first six months as an escort. Readers are pulled into the author’s search for love through the most unlikely path: prostitution. The story starts with the setting and the timeline of New York City in the late 1980s. Sephe is an idealistic, empathic young woman blinded by her desire for fantasy and romance, fearful of the “real world,” who dreams of true love and being an actress extraordinaire. But just after her Juilliard graduation, poverty and debt overwhelm her and she takes what she thinks will be a very limited leap into the underground world of escorting. But she finds it’s not so easy to get out of it. And maybe she doesn’t want to? Thus begins a memoir that is told in a compelling, humorous voice, each line calculated, well written and packed with wit. The humor greets the reader right from the start with the failed waitressing job and the meanness the author thinks the world reserves for her. Sephe Haven makes readers buy into her worldview, sit at her feet and listen to her story. With candor and honesty, Sephe Haven leads readers into the dilemmas of her life along with the difficult choice of taking the path of an escort. The prose is awesome, alluring and infused with sexiness. It is interesting how the author transforms a painful journey into something that is fun and entertaining and, at times, the reader wonders if this is a real-life narrative or fiction. My Whorizontal Life made me want to meet this author. She is so genuine, so honest, and so funny that even a saint would want to listen to her story.”

“My whorizontal Life: An Escort’s Tale by Sephe Haven is a true story and memoir written by Sephe of her foray into prostitution. Sephe has written a candid account of her experience so far with prostitution and the shadowy, underground world in which it takes place. Although Sephe has admitted the high as well as low points in her life and career, overall she seems to be content with her life as it turned out. The book also provides an insight into the tragic aspects of life as a prostitute for many others who live on the fringes of society without any hope of a better life, as well as the real risks involved in doing this. I also appreciated that Sephe has chosen to talk about her so-called friend to who she confided her secret and his judgmental behavior is once again a sad reflection of an unfair and sexist society that condemns the women involved in this, but never the men. Sephe Haven writes candidly and engagingly and I am looking forward to reading more books from her.”

“My whorizontal Life: An Escort’s Tale: The First Sex Months by Sephe Haven is a unique kind of memoir and I applaud the author for coming forward and sharing her story with us. She definitely gives us a different perspective on how we perceive the escort business, what goes on behind the scenes and the high-profile glitz and glamour we see. This could have been a very dark story, but Sephe has done a brilliant job at making her story compelling while at the same time keeping it real and raw. Sephe Haven’s compelling story, had me completely immersed from the get-go. The flow was just perfect. By the time I reached the middle of the story, it was as if I personally knew her. I could picture her expressions, her dilemmas, and feel her emotions. The narrative is so smooth that I just kept on reading and was sad when her story ended. I hope Sephe Haven will write more because her writing style is just so enjoyable.”
