About Patricia Mortlock Author:
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 new release has been awarded 5-Stars given by Reader's Favorite Literary Magazine and her book is available in paperback and e-book versions 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 with family, friends, her husband Jeff, and their fur baby Billy the Cat, and they continue to reside in Sunny California.
What inspires you to write?
I wanted to share these stories I wrote that I felt were unexpected about animals. These stories showed a depth to the animals I felt would surprise readers. The love of pets and animals is what inspired me to write about them.
What authors do you read when you aren’t writing?
My favorite authors are:
Tell us about your writing process.
I guess a seat of the pants writer… When I re-tell a story about a reading that I have done of a pet or animal, I actually go back into the emotions that were present as I was being told the story for the first time.
I try to explain all the sensations and feelings I was given by the pet. As an animal communicator, the pet doesn’t want anything left out.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
My book is non-fiction
What advice would you give other writers?
Write about what opens your heart.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
Several friends had self-published their books so I learned from their experiences. I was led by beautiful people who could help me express myself while instructing me about the practical process of writing and publishing. I wanted control of my work so I decided to self-published.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think self-publishing has made it easier to publish books. We then will learn and read more about extraordinary situations by so-called ordinary people. It helps validate what I do as an animal empath in communicating with animals.
I believe people will feel free to do so and more often write about phenomenal true events in their lives and share them through books.
