About Ramona


I grew up in Idaho, married an Idaho boy, lived all over the world, and finally settled in Texas. This site is a bridge, a gateway into different worlds. Writers are a lot like actors who, when they can’t really decide what to be when they grow up, decide to live different lives all at once. I have two alter-egos: one part religiously serious (or is it seriously religious?) and the other quirky and a bit irreverent. The best way to sum me up is: “Sometimes I feel like a nut. Sometimes I don’t.” When you feel like a nut, check out Monica Rivers. When you don’t, it's Ramona Siddoway. Welcome to my tribe!




Monica Rivers is a pen name for my cozy mystery series, A Mormon Woman's Guide to Murder. I live in Texas with my husband, 3 dogs, 2 cats, and a varying number of chickens.
