Ricardo Moran 

Hello, my name is Ricardo Moran. I am a writer who was born and raised in the southern California desert region.  

I write poetry, short stories, plays, and children's picture books.

I am currently wrestling with a novel whose protagonist decided to sit on the sidelines.
She hasn't moved in four years.

Take a look around. I hope you find something you like.

 The state of Nebraska and the country of Albania are two beautiful places that have influenced my writing with their landscapes and respective histories. 

My passion is literacy for children and adults. My favorite activities include reading picture books to children and discovering new poets and authors in the English, Spanish, and Albanian languages.

I am a board member of San Diego Writers, Ink, a  writers' non-profit, and serve on its diversity committee. 

I enjoy meeting people from all over the world.  
Drop me a message anytime.


November 2019.  Zagreb, Croatia.

Hanging out with the father of modern Croatian poetry, Antun Gustav Matos.  We stayed up until midnight trading stories.  Then I couldn't remember my way back to the hotel.

     All photos were taken by my very supportive husband, Jim Martin, who indulges me in my literary journey.

Glad you're here.

Grab a cup of coffee

and stay awhile.
