Ellen L. Ramsey

Children's Fiction and Non-Fiction Author

Good News

I’m thrilled to announce that in summer 2023, my debut picture book, A BOOK FOR BEAR, illustrated by MacKenzie Haley, will become a BOOK, published by Flamingo Books, an imprint of Penguin Young Readers.


I’m a lover of books, bears, birds, butterflies, and bees (I also like some things that don't start with b). I’m a writer of picture books and poetry, short stories and articles.

Inside of a dog it's too dark to read." – Groucho Marx

Think what if . . .

“If you hear hoofbeats, think zebras, centaurs, unicorns, anything except horses!” – Ellen L. Ramsey
