Of course Mead counts!! I've got a bunch of that too, and a bronze medla from a national competition, so I guess I'm decent at it.
To really get started, you'd probably be best off taking an inventory of what you have (To determine how to brew and what you can make), then just crank 'er up. It's really so much simpler than a lot of the books make it out to be.
