“‘I Choose the Moon’ is a story of adventure, passion and overcoming obstacles. Jonea’s memoir often feels like a work of fiction, as it is astonishing that one person has crammed so much living into one life." – Ryan Murphy

The Frankfurt Book Fair (Frankfurter Buchmesse) is a very prestigious event that brings together international publishers to network with authors, discuss industry trends, and see what’s next in today’s literature and publishing.

And because of that, hundreds if not thousands of books are expected to exhibit at the book trade fair, giving visitors a glimpse into the minds of writers from all corners of the world.

There are some, however, who go further as to have written about their many ventures spanning across those same corners.

Such is the story told by Jonea Mounsey in her memoir “I Choose the Moon: My Journey from the Midwest to the Middle East.”

In terms of profession, Mounsey is an RN with 27 years of experience. But in just those 27 years, she has gone from the American Midwest to the Middle East and beyond. Today, she is the mother of four successful adults who, in turn, have given her six grandkids.

Despite that, she still considers herself an adrenaline junkie and passionate about outdoor adventure. It’s this same feisty and determined spirit that has carried her through the incredibly difficult journey described in her book. Growing up in the rural part of Indiana, Mounsey had to struggle with realizing her globetrotting dreams in the face of social expectations, an increasingly controlling husband, and then raising four kids from her loveless marriage.

How did she make the difficult decision to follow her heart even with her kids in tow? Visitors to the Frankfurt Book Fair (Frankfurter Buchmesse) can find out when Jonea Mounsey’s “I Choose the Moon: My Journey from the Midwest to the Middle East” goes on display at the self-publishing and book marketing company ReadersMagnet’s exhibit. The event will take place on October 18-22, 2023, at the Frankfurt Trade Fair grounds, Ludwig-Erhard-Anlage 1, 60327 Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

The book is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. To learn more about the author and her works, please visit her website at
