This is the story of Mary Margaret
Kathleen Kelly O’Reilly, a young Pagan Catholic born with a veil
(second sight) in Dingle, Ireland in 1798. This romantic historical
tale begins in an Ireland still under British rule, with the
oppression of Roman Catholics, and great bitterness among the Irish
people, who desire most of all freedom from the British Crown. Our heroine’s
life has many twists and turns, numerous triumphs and tragedies. At a
young age, Maggie finds herself torn between her passion for her
young smuggler and a handsome soldier of the Crown. The story is rich in the history and
drama of the 1800s in Ireland, Europe and America between 1798 and
"The Irish hold a special place in the
formation of America. They crossed the Atlantic with a passion for
living to make a difference in their new world. Such is the story of
Mary Margaret Kathleen Kelly O'Reilly, born with special powers to
see beyond what others might see. She lived her life fully with
conviction and knowledge of what wonders lay ahead. Her story
evolves from immigrant struggles, to seeking justice for slaves
and women, while raising a family full of tragedy, love, laughter
and humility. It's the story of America and the people who made
this country great."

A Great Romance!
The author of this book did an
amazing job at creating a beautiful book that opens your mind to
the world of Ireland. The book is a romantic tale which moves
along quite quickly, and even though it is a longer book, I found
that I was thoroughly intrigued enough to keep wanting to read
page after page. The characters in the book were strong and
especially the heroine is a character that, though she has had to
overcome much, works hard to overcome this and finds love in the
end. Overall, if you enjoy romance and historical fiction, you
will enjoy reading this!

This is the story of a passionate Irish
mystic who immigrates to America to become a slaveholder and a
member of the Underground Railroad.
Several readers have recently told me that this is the best book
they have ever read! Music to this author's ears!
of this book has a good grasp of language and is able to write
clear sentences and dialogue. The book is exhaustively researched
and the writer seems aware of how people in the past would act and
think. Passion and Principle has a clear sense of place and
a strong setting. Mary Margaret is a well-depicted character. As
the story followed her life through issues like love, death, and
slavery, the novel occasionally reminded me of Gone With the
Wind in its romance and epic scope.

By Katie S.
Patricia McLaine has outdone
herself! Passion and Principle is the kind of story that
grabs the reader's interest immediately and once begun, the book
is impossible to put down. I found myself so intrigued by the
adventures of the heroine, Maggie, and all the colorful characters
and vivid descriptions of Irish life and history that hours of
reading flew by without notice. Passion and Principle is a
must read, and you will not be disappointed!

don't want the saga to end! Kathy, Portland, OR
Finished Passion and Principle. I love that book. My dad's favorite was Uncle Tom's Cabin. I
thought I would be Topsy when I grew up. The rest of this book is
a feast I devoured in two and a half days. I'm amazed I
know the author. Thank you so much for writing this book. Caroline, VA

which many of us only dream about. She has traveled the world, been
a confidant and advisor to diplomats, dignitaries, Hollywood stars
and countless men and women from all walks of life. She also
has love, laughter and an insatiable desire to open our minds to the

"Pattie McLaine is that rare psychic who puts
you in touch not just with your future but with yourself. Happily,
she has seen and helped me see when even the darkest experience
would lead to something I would learn from. She has been accurate
about travel, love, God and money, not necessarily in that
order...what more could anyone ask?"
Gwen Davis, author.
“Pattie McLaine is a woman of extraordinary
talent and insight. Her very readable and engaging memoir is full
of fascinating stories about her interesting and famous clientele.

Email: on Amazon: In
her memoir, Pattie McLaine accomplishes the difficult feat of
not only engaging the reader through the narration of her own
adventures and connections with a laundry list of the rich and
famous, but by helping us to understand that our own life and
the choices we make will impact us well past this chapter of
our existence. Through her gift, we get to learn vicariously
through stories of other people's triumphs and mistakes. I
would recommend this book to anyone who likes to think deeply
and laugh at the same time!
4/4/2011: I started reading your book yesterday and
couldn't put it down until I finished it. When I picked up the
book it opened to chapter 7 and that is where I began reading.
I have to believe you had something to do with that. Its
a great book and very easy to read. I enjoyed all of it.
UFOs are always a touchy subject in the Airlines. Some scoff
at the idea, but others who had sightings knew better. I was
always cautious to bring up the subject, but a few ex fighter
types told me of chase sequences that never got close. My
experience, as I once told you, was at age 11 in Chicago. We
had a clear view of a black saucer UFO flying squares around a
B-36 westbound for Glenview Air Base just north of O'Hare. The
pilots of the B36 never saw the object, according to the
newspaper reports the next day. Two things stood out besides
the ability to fly squares around the airplane: One, it was a
black saucer almost as large as the airplane. Second, when it
departed, it went up and out at a speed I cannot guess at
today. It must have accelerated to warp speed. Black stood out
because it reminded me of our spy aircraft, all painted black.
It was 30 years before I spoke of the incident after being
ridiculed by my classmates.
Email: 4/5/2011: Read your
Cosmic Conspiracy and loved every page of it. What
an interesting life, and there is obviously a whole lot more
to tell. This book should be an HBO three part movie.

Quotes from the book jacket:
"Pattie McLaine is the queen of synchronicity. In her hands, the
Tarot becomes an extremely effective way to tap other-than-conscious
realms of psychic functioning."
Richard B. Blasband, M.D.
"The many psychic readings I've had with
Patricia McLaine have provided me with valuable insight and guidance in
every phase of my life, but my Master Reading enabled me to develop a
kinder, more accepting attitude toward life and myself, making me a
happier person. I highly recommend the Master Reading to anyone
interested in viewing his or her life with greater clarity and
Dear Pattie, I have a copy of your excellent book "The Wheel of
Destiny" and can't believe how you know all this stuff. I laid out the
22 Major Arcana cards recently in three rows of 7, 8 and 7 cards, but
was at a loss as how to interpret them. Then I decided to give your
Master Spread a go and found it works wonderfully. No need for special
lay-out or even the intention to use Master Spread before laying the
cards it seems.
Many thanks, Michael S. Correll, Sydney,
"You are a fantastic writer, Pattie. I look forward to reading more of
your books. THE WHEEL OF DESTINY has so much knowledge in it. I look
forward to learning a lot from your book. Thanks, Pattie."

HYSTERICAL by Joleene Naylor
How Green was My Gimlet is a three
act play that centers on a psychiatrist who winds up treating a
married couple--The Pillows--in weekly back to back appointments.
The catch? Neither wants their partner to know the other is seeing a
shrink. Nutty at opposite ends of the spectrum the two can agree on
only one other thing: their choice of drink is a vodka gimlet.
But that just makes things worse.
Georgie likes hers with green cherry juice but David can't stand
them that way. Is this the root of all their problems? And will poor
Dr. Hildrone be an alcoholic before he's able to solve their issues?
Even better does he want to fix them? With all the suicides business
has been "falling off" lately. How much can he take of the zany
couple before the eager to please doctor drops off the deep end
Fun and witty this had me laughing out loud more than once. Great
just as something to read but I can only imagine it would be even
more fun for a small theater group to perform.
