  RAMONA MORROW

Ramona Morrow, born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, the oldest of three children. She has spent the first 9 years of her school career in a Catholic School system and spent the last three years in a Public School system. Ramona married and divorced in her late 20's. She has been divorced since 1987. She was a single-parent and is a proud mother of one grown child named Jamie, whom this book was named after, and two grown step-children named Shayne and Christopher.

When Ramona was 7 years old her parents moved to Saskatchewan, where she was raised until 1999. She lived in various towns and cities throughout Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Ramona graduated in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan on June 1980. In 1999, she moved back to Winnipeg, Manitoba to work in the transportation industry then she became a security guard in 2013. Ramona had worked in numerous jobs throughout her life. "I still remember my very first job as a car hop with A & W in Yorkton, Saskatchewan," she recalls now. "I loved that job and I still love the burgers and root beer. Mostly I enjoyed meeting new people."

When Ramona was younger, she was involved with sports, like indoor and outdoor track & field, figure skating, and girl's hockey. "I was a very fast runner in my younger years," she says now. Ramona enjoys participating in and watching sports. Her favorite CFL football team is Saskatchewan Roughriders then Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Ramona has been a Boston Bruins fan since she was 12 years old. As for baseball, her team is the Boston Red Sox.

Ramona loves writing poetry and short stories, listening to music, watching movies, baking, making home-cooked meals and is a self-taught chocolatier.

Ramona loves to read autobiographies like Michelle Obama, Shania Twain, Tina Turner, Anderson Cooper and Gloria Vanderbilt for example. She also reads cookbooks and cake decorating books as if they were novels.


Starting in the late nineties, Ramona had her poetry published in ten different poetry book publications. She began writing her first children's book, starting with this one, Jamie's Pet, published on January 07, 2019. The book was inspired from Jamie and Ramona's visit with the pet store when they were trying to see which pet would be good for Jamie to have as his first pet. Throughout Jamie's childhood he has had dogs, cats, love birds, gerbils, and various fish, shrimp, turtles as pets. "Our household was very active."

Jamie’s Pet being Ramona’s first children's book was written for children between the ages of 6 months or younger to 12 years old. The book has colorful pictures that are educational, entertaining, and is fun to read. Ramona is now working on her second children's book.
