to the world of award-winning author, Ramona D. Marek, MS Ed. A world where the arts, culture, history, and lots of fur and purrs come together into the printed word. In her career as an author, freelance writer, and contributing writer, her work has been printed in numerous national and international print and digital magazines. She is an author whose writing and curiosity know no bounds, but her work is surrounded by three touchstones.



Ramona has an interest in the arts, both classical and popular culture as well as history. She has published many articles focusing on the intersection of these studies and where they intersect with other fields. Read her “Cats in Pop Culture” or “Persian Lion – Royal Symbol of Power” over on her “Works” page of this website.



With a wide range of interests and writing abilities, Ramona takes joy in investigating the world around her. While her capacity for writing is diverse, the yang to her Eclectic worldview is her Pet-centric yin. A life-long animal lover and advocate promoting respect and compassion for sentient, living beings through action and word. She is known as a cat writer, but has published several articles relating to dogs and other critters in the pet industry. See “Dog Marketplace – the Whole Package.”



Completing the assemblage, felicific has nothing to do with cats – but it should! By definition it:
1. causes or intends to cause happiness
2. is a particular style of writing; a pleasing faculty in art or language

Both are facilities that any writer should aspire to.
