Ricardo Moran 

Hello, my name is Ricardo Moran. I am a writer from southern California.  I have made San Diego home most of my adult life.  

I write poetry, short stories, plays, children's picture books, and am currently wrestling with a novel whose protagonist has decided to sit on the sidelines.

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 currently sit on the board of San Diego Writers, Ink, a local writers non-profit.  

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.
