In Which Ramona Tries to Pull Off an Author’s Page

All of my writer friends have author’s pages. They’re amazing! Mine is a start.

Essays on life, writing, and activism. And they pay me! I like a lot of what I write there. I hope you will, too.

Ramona’s Voices

Find me here

My political blog. I’m a Josiah Bartlet Liberal and I love The West Wing. I’ve began writing this blog on Barack Obama’s Inauguration Day in 2009. I ended it on Joe Biden’s Inauguration Day in 2021. It’s all archived because there’s still some pretty good stuff in there.

Constant Commoner

My Substack newsletter. The name comes from my badly neglected blog of the same name. This seems to work better for me and this is where you’ll find me most often now. Please sign up. No gimmicks, no sales pitches, just more of the same from me.

Writers, please join my Substack community at Writer Everlasting. I’m a writer, teacher, and editor and this is our place to talk about our addiction to words and sentences and art.




Welcome to my Newsletters:

I have officially started a newsletter on Substack and I’m slowly getting excited about it. I started it because all of my favorite writer friends had one and they’ve come really close to calling me a Luddite loser because I didn’t.

Always the sheep, I went for it.

I called it something else at first but now it’s Constant Commoner, the name I chose for a blog I kept for a long while. It fits, I think. I’m an ordinary blue-collar Midwesterner with no illusions about my place in the universe and I like it that way.

I would love to see you there. No fees, no commitment, no pressure. 


And if that’s not enough, I’ve started Writer Everlasting, a newsletter/blog strictly for writers. I’m a long-time writer, teacher, and editor and I think I still have something to offer. This will be a community, a safe-house for writers who are serious about their craft and want to turn it into art. I’m looking forward to hosting a sometimes raucous, always professional houseful of writers. Come on along if that’s your thing!



How I see myself

I’ve been writing forever but started getting paid for it in the 1980s, long before the internet. I’ve been at it for a long time and some of it seems to be okay, so I’ll keep on doing it.
