Genre: Animal Care & Pets

Animals Speak: Communication with Animals – Both Living and in Spirit

by Patricia Mortlock Author (Author)


We only underestimate animals because of the language barrier.

Intuition is a gift. We all have it. Patricia Mortlock’s has been refined to such an extent that communicating and understanding messages from animals is a trait that comes naturally to her. I was amazed at her ability as I read the many stories in which she helped both grieving pet owners and the pets as well in passing important messages to one another. If a reader is a skeptic of the intuitive world, this book might help educate that person.

— Zoe J, Reader/Reviewer




Book Description:

What if I told you, “I just heard of a book that talks about animals that are able to communicate.

In fact, believe it or not, one offers marriage advice hoping to save a marriage in trouble. Another pet dies of a sudden heart attack, and takes his owner’s heart problems with him.” You might say “I love reading fiction; it’s so entertaining.” I would have to tell you, “It’s not fiction!” I have met with these pets and others with equally compelling stories.

We only underestimate animals because of the language barrier. When that is gone, the gap closes between us, and we realize they are capable of intelligent thinking and a very deep emotional range.

Come along and be amazed as you read about so-called ordinary pets who break all the rules and break out of the boxes we have put them in! NOW Available on Amazon


ABOUT THE AUTHOR ~ Patricia Mortlock


Patricia Mortlock is the author of her new book titled Animals Speak: Communication with Animals – Both Living and in Spirit, a beautifully written book of her shared life experiences and work as an animal communicator. Her book is available in paperback and e-book versions and is now available on Amazon online, Kindle Unlimited, and many fine book sites.

Patricia has been speaking and communicating with animals since she was a child. Born and raised in Southern California, Patricia attended college and majored in business then began working in the field of interior design. She was intuitively sent to San Diego, where she met and married her soul mate of 25-years and counting. Settling in Ventura county, Patricia is naturally gifted in the area of intuition. Her earliest recollection of her intuition was at the age of five as she communicated with her pet Ginger who was transitioning into spirit.

Patricia is a Reiki Master and uses her skills with animals and people to help heal physical and mental pain. She has studied with Carolyn Myss and many others in the field of intuitive development. She enjoys teaching classes on Animal Communication and the principles involved in being an empath, teaching meditation techniques, and helping students identify how they uniquely receive intuitive information.

The author enjoys being involved in women’s groups that believe in a strong-ethical bond to the planet, its animals, and all people. Patricia wants readers to know the importance and the depth of what the animals have to say. Whether they are living or within the spirit, they will often give us insight into why they have come into our lives. The information is often a source of “heart-opening” between the pet and its family while supplying insight into their owners’ lives.

When she is not working or teaching, Patricia loves tending to her little Bonsai garden and spending time at the ocean, and time with family, friends, her husband Jeff, along with their fur baby Billy the CAT.
They continue to reside in Southern California in Ventura County.

Patricia’s New E-book is Available for Kindle Unlimited Members Too!

“Reviewed By Lois J Wickstrom for Readers’ Favorite

Patricia Mortlock loves animals. She tells about their lives in much the same way as the Chicken Soup animal-lover stories. Animals Speak: Communication with Animals – Both Living and in Spirit is different from Chicken Soup in one important aspect: Mortlock is an ‘intuitive.’ You don’t have to believe that she is an ‘intuitive’ to enjoy and have a good cry over these tales. But you do have to understand that she believes it.

This collection of tales about elephants, cats, dogs, horses, and even a lizard features communication not only in words but also in pictures and emotions. Her stories are about animals who have come into our lives not only to love us, but to teach us and care for us, and in several instances heal their humans or save their marriages. Some of these animals speak to Mortlock when she focuses on their pictures. Some are alive and some are “in spirit.”

People sometimes think they don’t understand their pets. They don’t know why their animals do certain things. Sometimes they just want to know what their animals are thinking. Patricia Mortlock has developed her intuition in such a way that she can help people get to know their animals better. Animals Speak: Communication with Animals – Both Living and in Spirit answers some of those questions, and offers guidance for readers who want to develop their own intuition. Mortlock’s stories inspire the reader to deepen his or her relationship with the animals in their lives.

I was particularly impressed with her story about hearing a horse explain what he needed to recover from a disease. If you love animals, this book will increase your appreciation for their presence in our lives and the friendships that they offer. This is the story of a heartfelt connection between a human and the animals she meets.”

Cat Welcomes Our Award-Winning Author Diane Olsen Sharing News, Her New Award, a New Release Coming & a Sneak Peek Cover Reveal of Her Book Four…And Why You Need To Read the “Rising Wind” Book Series.

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 2022 MEDALISTS!

THANK YOU TO ALL THE EXCELLENT AUTHORS WHO ENTERED THEIR INSPIRING BOOKS IN THE 2022 AWARDS.

*** *** *** *** *** *** ****

Now, before Cat gets to the Cover Reveal, I want to share the amazing Reader’s Favorite 5-Star Awarded Book Review Diane received from them. The reviewer did a fantastic review that actually sums up the Rising Wind Book Series from reading book one, The Thunder Beings, then book two, Ice and Bone, and book three that she has just won the Bronze Medal titled The Weeping God and The Book of Hope.

Diane’s books to this series can be read as stand-alone’s, or for a richer reading experience, you can read them in consecutive order. Either way, readers are going to love reading this series. Even though the series is fictional, Diane adds so many real facts and real information from her research to each book. And many different topics and elements like comparisons of world religions, how all humanity is connected, the hope of mankind, elements of archeology and paleontology, extinct beings and animals, and so much more! Here is how the Reviewer Summed up Rising Wind…

Books two and three of Rising Wind


Book Review By Reader’s Favorite of Rising Wind and Book Three:

The Weeping God and the Book of Hope, part three in the Rising Wind series, is actually a prequel to the first two books, so it’s not necessary to have read those first.

The lead characters, Sage Dalton and L.W. are the main character’s parents in the other Rising Wind books. Although the characters are different and it is set in an earlier time period, the tone of the book is very similar. This time they discover an ancient text in a Mexican desert tomb that leads Sage, L.W., and a group of fellow explorers to Tibet, where they find themselves in the middle of a war. Even with danger at every turn, they still manage to discover secret caves that lead them toward an elusive yet powerful Book of Hope.

First and foremost, her books have a superb cast of characters that readers can easily relate to. They care about each other, work together to achieve a common goal, laugh together, and cry together. Second, her stories revolve around rare ancient discoveries found all around the world. Much like the great Indiana Jones films, each new discovery comes with an element of danger.

The third common theme is an embracing of all world religions. Religion is somehow intertwined with each rare find that the characters make. I appreciate the way Ms. Olsen always characterizes the religious elements in her stories in a positive light, as the hope of mankind rather than the way most works of fiction portray religion in a negative sense as mankind’s biggest problem. This is a fun read filled with colorful characters and lots of action. I recommend it for fans of character-driven adventure who like to learn about science, ancient civilizations, and world religions along the way.

~The Avid Reading Cat


It’s been my endeavor to ensure variety in my protagonists, not that the task is easy. Billionaires tend to come in very few shapes and sizes, not literally of course. Most of them are scions of industry. Then again, we have actors from my soon to be published books – like Patrick Townsend from ‘Looking for Like’ and a race car driver Dean Winters from ‘All You Have To Do Is Call’.

The publishers have asked me to write one with a sports star. The choices are aplenty. Aforementioned Dean Winters is one candidate, but the truth is that he isn’t an F1 driver in the story, rather it is his back story. He is actually a manufacturer of e-vehicles. I know some of you are going … yawn.


“They tend to be hot-headed. Drama queens – and very good actors, not to mention artful manipulators.”


If I were to invest in a sporty character, what sport would I choose? And what got me thinking about it?

Let’s answer the second question first. Summer in the Europe provides fodder in abundance from Wimbledon, French Open in Tennis, Tour de France, the Euro cup which England sadly lost despite a stellar performance and ICC World Cricket championship which New Zealand won. Watching Tom Cruise hob-nob with David Beckham on Centre Court got me started. The same day, watching the Euro Cup finals not too far away in Wembley nailed it for me.

Tom Cruise spotted at Wimbledon this year.


If I were to choose, I’d probably choose football or as the Americans like to call it, soccer. Why? First, it gives me an opportunity to write about another Italian billionaire, with Italy winning the Euro Cup. The female leading lady could be a British WAG wannabe who is seeking payback for England’s loss.


We all know footballers have their own currency printing press, not literally, but each of their contracts run into tens of millions of pounds. Add to that sponsorship and ad revenue and bingo – you have yourself a billionaire. There aren’t too many of them around – Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo being two of them. Technically, net worth’s are shy of a billion but who’s counting?

Giroud is a prime example of an incredibly attractive athlete. Loaded, and wears the hell out of that suit!



There are plenty of other reasons. Athletes, footballers in particular are fit. Not going to the gym three times a week fit. I can run around chasing a ball for 90 odd minutes fit. Most of the players in the latest Euro cup were still strutting around after two hours. They tend to be hot-headed. Drama queens – and very good actors, not to mention artful manipulators.


Have you seen them fake injuries on the field in order to earn a free kick? There are a few Oscar-worthy performances in all the big matches. They’re large-hearted, passionate (at least about football) and players for the most part – in a decidedly sexual way.


My hero would be a nasty piece of work on the outside – hard-headed Alpha Male who is as rich as God, arrogant, overbearing, physically rough-edged but later will reveal a gooey and tender heart. His language would be foul. At first, he’d treat the female lead like a bit of shit – remember The Billionaire Needs a Bodyguard? 


Then, our hero would fall in love after some TLC from the vengeful WAG who maybe, just maybe is into some light S&M. Our Bitch would spring the trap, leaving our footie hero devastated when he realizes that she’s been gaming him.

The Billionaire Needs a Bodyguard Kindle Edition


How do I get them back together? Hmm. Let me think about that. Most certainly, there’d be a match or two in the play. Where do the thrills come from? Oh, just wait and see. I’m not going to give the whole plot away, but I will leave you with a hint. Think corruption scandal, match-fixing (oh yeah, it does happen, even in football), and football hooligans – remember Green Street? Our WAG is going to get beaten up. Badly.

And here’s the icing on the cake. I’ve yet to see an ugly footballer. They’re all handsome, sexy, tidy, gorgeous hunks of masculinity with my fingers now itching to create a thriller romance with one of them. I can imagine in my mind’s eye the cold-hearted calculating British bitch of a ex-WAG targeting an Italian footballer and falling into his love-cum-lust trap, inconceivably finding a Happily-Ever-After. My mouth is already drooling. And ladies, there are other parts that are also … okay, let’s keep it U-Rated for now.

And let me get to work.

Sigh. With a saddened heart I bid you goodbye, but only for the moment.

Hope you’ve enjoyed reading this as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it.

“Cheers!”

Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers’ Favorite

Despite The Devil is a work of fiction in the women’s fiction, contemporary romance, and interpersonal drama sub-genres, and was penned by author Shawna James. This compelling and emotional tale focuses on the central couple Stephanie and Andrew, whose initial romance seems ideal and a true match made in heaven.

But Andrew has skeletons in the closet from old mistakes, and both he and Stephanie always have one eye on the past, consumed by the fear that it might come to destroy their future. What results is a poignant, romantic, and emotional tale about finding love and fighting for it, with faith and perseverance.

Author Shawna James has crafted a romantic drama that delivers clean content suitable for readers of all sensitivities, and with a deep sense of passion and devotion from its central pairing. More than this, the work smacks of realism thanks to the grounding of the characters and their realistic dialogue. When faced with adversity they react in ways that we as readers can really relate to, and it compels us to go with them every step of the way on their journey.

One of the things I particularly liked about the work was the plot structure, which keeps things interesting as different elements being revealed. We get some great highs and lows as we see how Andrew and Stephanie deal with the bumps on the road. Overall, I would certainly recommend Despite The Devil for its realistic approach to contemporary drama. A well-written work indeed.

Reviewed By Edith Wairimu for Readers’ Favorite

“Red Card: A Bet You Can Win! documents the fascinating journey of a UK former professional (soccer) football player, Tony Kelly, including his struggle with gambling and his experiences with racism. Kelly was born in 1966 and grew up in Coventry, UK. His family, especially his twin brother Mel, remains a constant source of support for him. At the time, he saw football not only as his ticket to a better life but as his escape from the streets of Coventry that were marked by frequent cases of racist attacks and violence.

Unfortunately, these would not be his last encounters with racism. Kelly went on to achieve football stardom playing for clubs such as Stoke City, Leyton Orient, Bury FC, and Swedish club, Gimonais CK, even playing at Wembley Stadium in 1992. Despite his success in football, his career was marred by a costly addiction to gambling.

Red Card: A Bet You Can Win! by Tony Kelly is a story of hope and redemption. It paints a shocking but realistic picture of the cost of gambling. Kelly explains how he gradually got into overwhelming debt and how the problem cost him his football career and his long-term relationship. He later decided to get professional help and now assists others affected by gambling through his support project, Red Card.

Other important topics arise in the book including the existence of racism in football and other areas. Without his twin brother playing alongside him, Kelly felt isolated. In school, he also faced racism from other students. The book shares important lessons for aspiring and professional players. Red Card: A Bet You Can Win! is a memoir that contains impactful lessons from a former professional footballer.”
