About the Author

Ann Bolinger-McQuade has always sensed the world as alive, nurturing, and filled with personal oracles — concepts deeply seeded in her Native American ancestry. Before becoming a full-time writer in 1999, then a monthly columnist, regular radio show guest, lecturer, and workshop facilitator, she worked in advertising and sales, writing for a trade publication in the fashion industry and later owning a small business in California.

Personal oracles have been playing a major role in Ann's life for almost three decades. She fully recognized them after her diagnosis of breast cancer. They have guided and offered comfort to her as she dealt with the loss of her father, the passing of a close friend, and the death of a beloved animal companion. While Bolinger-McQuade struggled with each of these challenges, she ultimately was able to move forward with peace in her heart. Personal oracles continue to assist her on a daily basis. Ann has been part of the spiritual communities of Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico for the past three decades. Before his death in 2009, Native American Elder Richard Deertrack of the Taos Pueblo honored Ann in a sacred ceremony. Deertrack supported her vision to expand the consciousness of an interconnected universe through the awareness of personal oracles.

Ann divides her time between Tucson, AZ and Taos, NM with her husband, two dogs, and one cat, all of whom she adores.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Everyday Oracles will leave you with a renewed faith in life’s possibilities." 
—Lisa Hopper, author of In the Wake of a Dream

"In Everyday Oracles, Ann Bolinger-McQuade teaches us to look with new eyes at the miracles that surround us. This book is truly a gift—one to be read and passed on."  
—Donna Fontanarose Rabuck, Ph.D., Director, Center for the Sacred Feminine

"Life is an intimate embrace in which all things generously reveal their hidden goodness. In Everyday Oracles, Ann Bolinger-McQuade eagerly shares her experiences of life’s awakened presence in its many signs, colors, and voices. It is a privilege to walk together on the path of her journey, and awaken to the power and gentleness of the mind with its dreams and visions. Take this walk and you will find beauty appearing all around you, and a new sense of discovery within." 
—Dr. David N. Russell, Ph.D., D.Sc., author of Healthy Solutions: A Guide to Simple Healing and Healthy Wisdom

"Ann Bolinger-McQuade is a divine messenger. Her book shows us the interconnectedness of all beings. She helps us find the magic of our personal oracles and shows us how to live happier, more inspired lives. A must read." 
Tina Powers, psychic medium and author of Reporting for the Other Side

"Ann Bolinger-McQuade’s book is so important because our culture has lost the ability to interpret personal oracles that can be seen and found everywhere, especially in nature. Everyday Oracles reminds us that we are part of a living world that speaks to us unceasingly, if we but learn to see and listen."  
Lisa Thiel, visionary artist, singer, and songwriter

"If you found Everyday Oracles or it found you, then pick it up and read it. You will walk away with some kind of message that speaks to you." 
—Liza M. Wiemer, author of Extraordinary Guidance: How to Connect with Your Spiritual Guides

"Synchronicities and premonitions are part of our spiritual interconnectedness, and Ann Bolinger-McQuade describes in brilliant fashion how we can all attune ourselves to the spiritual life messages laid before us. The question is: Are you willing to hear the message?"  —Shawn A. Tassone, M.D., author of Spiritual Pregnancy: Nine Months of Spiritual Transformation Before You Give Birth

"Everyday Oracles connects on so many levels and, in the end, leaves you feeling positive and hopeful. It is more than the power of positive thinking. It is the power of love that is sustaining and renewing to the spirit, as food and drink are to the physical body. You are hard put not to seek such sustenance in your own life. Those who read this book will realize that the universe has indeed given them a gift." 
—Elizabeth K. Julian, J.D., former Regional Director, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development

"Here is a down-to-earth guide to leading a magical life." 
—Joan Wulfsohn, author of Stalking Carlos Castaneda

"Filled with inspiring, real-life stories of individuals who have had their eyes opened to the splendor of what Carl Jung called ‘synchronicity.’ . . . If you want to open your eyes, ears, heart, and mind to the many divine voices of Nature around you, this is a good place to start." 
—Allan J. Hamilton, M.D., author of The Scalpel and the Soul and Zen Mind, Zen Horse

"If you’ve been wanting to know more about messages from another realm but have been put off by the elaborate trappings surrounding many metaphysical systems, this is the book for you. Familiar, supportive, and positive in message, Everyday Oracles is written directly and in simple language. The power of the book comes from the personal anecdotes of people comforted, protected, and nurtured by loving presences which are closer than most of us realize."
Anna Jedrziewski, InannaWorks.com
