I just saw your message today. Oh, I'm happy to hear you're able to work from home. I hope you've continued to stay safe and clear of COVID-19. I haven't contracted it and neither have my loved ones. We all are consistent with practicing safety measures. But OMG, when this is finally over, I have a long list of people to see too and parties and dinners to plan! lol And travel... OMG... Where to go first?!? Sales have been steady since COVID struck, even in the face of me not publishing a final book in 2020 and having one ready to go in 2021. But as you're probably aware, I love writing about families so taking my time to craft the story has benefitted me in remarkable ways. I love the slower pace. I can spend more time with my characters and in their world. So I think from now on, I'll release a trilogy a year and the breaks in the books will constitute a major shift change in the characters' lives. And the books will be much longer. :-) Again, I hope you're doing well. And thanks for checking in! I absolutely enjoy hearing from you! All best, Z(less)

Who would play Clarity? Hmm... I don't know! But I prefer someone who knows how to act first. I also think it would be really cool to do the series in CG for adults, being that there are seven sisters who are identical other than variations of hair, skin and eye colors, and so forth.(less)

I was completely invested in the lives of these girls. I felt as if I was living in their shoes even though​ I was a spectator to their reality. This story is gripping in every conceivable​ way.

Expert human storytelling. The author was so aware of the human condition. She was not only able to capture being human but her style allowed us to live in Marianne and Connell's mind and body. Five stars and I totally recommend it. ...more

“You just called me a bitch!

But that's not a bad thing. See what I meant was you're an unapologetic hard ass!”
Z.L. Arkadie, The Seventh Sister

“The night life draws me in like a moth to a flame and not even fear could convince me to not walk amongst the giants that line the streets.”
Z.L. Arkadie, Parched

“Leaving things the way they are is merely my way of maintaining emotional and spatial distance. So much of my life has been lived already, but in the last three days I realized I want more. I simply want more.”
Z.L. Arkadie, Find Her, Keep Her

“Anything that annoys you is for teaching you patience.
Anyone who abandons you is for
teaching you how to stand up
on your own two feet.
Anything that angers you is for teaching you forgiveness and compassion.
Anything that has power over you is for teaching you how to take your power back.
Anything you hate is for
teaching you unconditional love.
Anything you fear is for
teaching you courage to
overcome your fear.
Anything you can’t control is for teaching you how to let go and trust the Universe”
Jackson Kiddard

“Do not try to change someone, when you do this you deny the Love inside you by choosing to deny what is Now. Love can only exist now, when you try to change someone into an idea of what you want them to be you have decided to be in a relationship with your projection of a possible potential of someone else. You are fooling yourself if you think trying to change someone will make you happy. Instead, change in yourself the things you think the other person should change. This is why you are not happy and fulfilled now.”
