About Book One of the Series

Get ready to be whisked away aboard The Toad Chronicles, an inspiring, theme-park adventure ride, set in the metaphorical swamp of life. During the various legs of the ride, Zeni, the series protagonist and narrator of the ride, recounts the tales of her escapades to find Prince Charming, only to be met by a swamp filled with never ending toads.

In book one of the series which is leg one of the ride, seven guests, hailing from different backgrounds, join Zeni and Jose, the ride’s driver, aboard a swamp buggy and travel to ten destinations, meeting two species of toads: the “religious freak” and “commitment creep” toads, for a total of eleven subspecies of toads showcased during leg one.

At the end of each escapade, Zeni and her guests engage in an empowering discussion in which Zeni imparts some of the life-altering wisdom she discovered during her adventures. Ultimately, this wisdom changed Zeni’s outlook on life, love, and most importantly, herself, enabling her to rise up in her empowerment, escape the swamp ,and become the hero of her own fairytale.

Join Zeni for this inspiring adventure through the swamp. Learn how to rise up, become empowered, and break free of limitations.

**Karis has chosen to use the pen name of “Giana Solomon” when rebranding this series, in honor of a very special young lady who inspired Karis during her journey of awakening.

Meet Nikki Karis, author, inspiring speaker, animal advocate, and creative entrepreneur. Karis’ given name is Nikki Marie Kavouklis, and she resides on the West Coast of Florida with her rescue cats and dogs, who inspire her as she creates and writes.

Prior to launching her inspiring projects, including her book series and merchandise site, she was a practicing personal injury attorney for twenty-eight years, having her own law firm with six locations at the height of her practice. During the pandemic of 2020, however, Karis finally decided to take a leap of faith and pursue her lifelong dream of inspiring others via her empowering books and uplifting merchandise.

Thus, throughout 2020 and 2021, Karis made preparations to launch Karis Brands, an inspiring merchandise site (now redirected to her Tail Life Shop, along with T1 Rise, a super-brand of eight social activism risings, and Tail Life, a merchandise site uniting people and their pets around the world. She also began formulating plans for Tailzee, a social network platform, devoted to uniting humans and their animals around the world. These projects, along with many others, will begin launching the beginning of 2022 and beyond.

For pleasure, Karis enjoys reading, traveling, rescuing animals, collecting art, and decorating her circa 1925 home. She also loves exploring the world and hopes to grow Finding Zeni, Inc., the holding company for her inspiring projects, into a successful, caring, and compassionate company with a mission to uplift and empower others. Her future plans include building a home and an animal rescue center on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas, where she frequently retreats to write.
