In a marketplace full of relationship books that range from clinical to sensational, Ramona Zabriskie’s Wife for Life, The Power to Succeed in Marriage stands out for its sympathetic, elegant wisdom. Written in a warm, feminine tone, this book masterfully interlaces authoritative voices with personal stories from the author’s 35 year marriage and her motivational speaking and mentoring career. Nearly divorced two years after her own wedding, the author has become an advocate and exemplar of marital success for women who want to believe. Her compassion and know-how, uniquely presented in three parts: “Why You Both Want a Grand, Lifelong Marriage”, “How to Avoid Becoming a Dream Breaker”, and “What to Do to Make Dreams Come True”, is proving transformative. Inspired by new perspective, women from every stage of life and marital status are gaining the skills, confidence, and long-range vision needed to affect their own happiness as well as the ultimate outcome of their marriage. Wife for Life has helped women turn troubled marriages around, transform good marriages into great ones, and grow great marriages into “grand empires of love” that can last forever. A Reader's Favorite International Book Awards winner.

Ramona Zabriskie -- Bio Ramona Zabriskie's given name means "wise counselor" in Spanish, "mighty defender" in German, and "dreamer" in Arabic. All three come together in Wife for Life: The Power to Succeed in Marriage. Known for her empathy, passion, and humor, Ramona's motivational speaking has taken her all over the country, from classrooms to stages, from chapels to college campuses, for over twenty years. She began focusing her live presentations on understanding men and marriage in 2008 in addition to writing three internationally popular blogs on the subject. Her subsequent personal involvement with readers and audiences from all over the world led to her work as a mentor and to the serious research and writing that became Wife for Life. Appearing first as an independent publication on Kindle, Nook, and other e-readers in June 2013, Wife for Life proved such an immediate sensation; Leicester Bay Books sought the rights to publish it as a paperback and audio book that same summer. Prior to Wife for Life, Ramona spent thirty years writing and directing for the performing arts and chaired a number of service organizations and events focused on women, teens, and disability advocacy. She is the mother of four and wife-for-life to Dale Zabriskie, international keynoter and corporate evangelist. Her husband, children, in-law children, and grandchildren are her biggest fans and have all contributed their varied and professional talents to Wife for Life. Though the Zabriskies raised their family in Orlando, Florida and have lived in London, England for a time; Ramona is actually a sixth generation Pacific-Northwestener. The couple now lives in their southwest Washington dream home, just over the river and through the woods from Portland, Oregon, where the author is working on Husband for Life: The Power to Keep Her Happy.
