Secret of NexusAuthor and Family Business Operator Jeff Miller Combines Passions for Writing and Leadership in Debut Novel, The Secret of Nexus

For immediate release:  If you want to succeed in business, read more novels. That’s according to research that found reading fiction can improve sensitivity in decision making and relationship building. But The Secret of Nexus (Ambassador International; October 2012; $12.99, paperback) does both: entertains readers with a fascinating story and enlightens them with inspirational leadership lessons. “This leadership parable is unique because of the analogy connected to the story,” says author and entrepreneur Jeff Miller. “Through a suspenseful story I try to renew the reader’s passion to lead, and also reveal the five attributes that help make leaders influential.”

The Secret of Nexus follows Garrett Thompson, a doctor-turned-entrepreneur, as he launches his company Nexus, Inc. Garrett develops a secret product that could change the world, but running a successful business and developing a potentially life-changing product puts his personal strength and leadership abilities to the test. “This book is for leaders who sometimes feel like they have tough circumstances to lead under,” explains Jeff. “In the book, Garrett models what it means to truly make sacrifices for his employees, family and community.”

Author Jeff Miller’s family business has grown from a small business started by his parents in the late 1960s into a successful chain of restaurants, hotels, gift shops and wholesale food distribution. Essenhaus, Inc and Dutchman Hospitality Group, Inc have locations in Indiana, Florida and Ohio. Jeff lives in Indiana with his wife and children. The Secret of Nexus is his debut novel.
