About Me


I have adored books since before I was literate. I would carry my picture books around “reading” by making up stories to go with the illustrations. A few of my elementary school years were lived next door to a beautiful historic library in Phoenixville, PA, which still holds a place in my heart for nurturing my love of reading, and my lifelong support of public libraries.

I’ve written creative non-fiction since college. I was a staff writer for Bozeman Magazine for four years and still contribute occasionally. I’ve written for Inquisitr.com and have been published by online newspaper The Bozeman Magpie.

I’ve combined these two passions of mine at RamonaMead.com with a goal of inviting readers to step outside their bookish comfort zone.


I value connection, creativity, hard work & humor. I love to laugh, and to make others laugh! If I’m not reading or writing, I’m probably out walking my dogs, riding my bike, or yardsale-ing. I’m an introvert and a home body. Thankfully I’m married to a wonderful guy who is the same.
