From Wikipedia.org:

Ted Andrews, July 16, 1952 - October 24, 2009"Ted Andrews (July 16, 1952 - October 24, 2009) was a bestselling author and teacher of shamanic, animistic and esoteric lore. He wrote over forty books which have been translated into more than two dozen foreign languages. He also produced several audio cassettes and CDs, and designed and produced two Tarot card decks. He is the founder of DragonHawk Publishing...Andrews was certified in basic hypnosis through the New Life Center of Hypnotherapy in West Virginia, and basic acupressure through the Center for Chinese Medicine in California. He completed two years of formal study in "Herbs for Healthful Living" at the Herbal Emporium of Dayton, Ohio.

"Andrews was most noted for his mystical writings about animals. The best selling of his books on this topic, Animal Speak: The Spiritual & Magical Powers of Creatures Great and Small (1993), had sold nearly half a million copies by the time of his death, which was considered an unusual success for the metaphysical niche market. Animal Speak is considered a classic by such noteworthy New Age reviewers as Lauren D´Silva, and BellaOnline, the second largest women's site on the web. Wren, co-founder of The Witches' Voice (a prominent Neo-Pagan webzine), notes that "Everyone in the metaphysical genre knows his Animal Speak as the most comprehensive book on animal totems."

"Andrews served the Ohio public school system for ten years as a teacher and counselor, seven of which were spent working with disadvantaged students in a special needs program for which he received both local and state recognition.

Ted Andrews"As a long time volunteer at the Brukner Nature Center in Troy, Ohio, Andrews held state and federal permits to work with birds of prey. He regularly performed wildlife rescue, and wrote about wildlife rehabilitation. He championed animal rights and conducted animal education and storytelling programs accompanied by his own animals in school classrooms. He also wrote a number of children's books about animals and magic. In May 2002 he was invited to speak to the United Nations Staff Recreation Council in New York City because of his writings and work with animals.

"Active in the holistic healing field, focusing strongly on esoteric forms of healing with sound, music, and voice, Andrews worked with past-life analysis. Andrews spoke and taught throughout the United States on subjects such as the healing arts, Magic and Kabbalah. Divinatory topics he wrote on include divination, fortune telling, aura interpretation, dreams, numerology, and tarot card reading. He was featured on national and local TV and radio programs.

"Andrews played the piano, Celtic harp, bamboo flute, shaman rattles, Tibetan bells, Tibetan singing bowls, and quartz crystal bowls, several of which he used as components of healing therapies. He also released a CD of his own musical compositions for piano and violin entitled Dance of the Unicorn.

"Andrews won more COVR Visionary Awards than any other author during the first thirteen years of the award's history. The Visionary Awards are given annually by the Coalition of Visionary Resources at the International New Age Trade Show, and are judged by retailers and other New Age professionals. Among his works receiving this award are:

  • Secret Doors of the Qabala - Winner of Coalition of Visionary Resources (COVR) Book of the Year, General Interest
  • Animal Inspiration Cards, Set 1 - tied for best General Gift category, 2008, COVR
  • Animal Inspiration Cards, Set 2 - Finalist for best General Gift category, 2008, COVR
  • Nature Speak - 2nd Runner up for Book of the Year in 2005 by the New Age trade group COVR
  • The Animal Speak Workbook - tied for 2003 winner of Coalition of Visionary Resources Best Book of the Year - General Category, beating another of his books, which came in as runner up
  • Spirits, Ghosts and Guardians - chosen 2nd runner up for Book of the Year - General Category,2003, by the Coalition of Visionary Resources.

Animal Speak by Ted Andrews"Animal Speak has received particular notice: it is #6 in the Top 100 Spiritualism bestsellers on Tower.com, #1 in books on both Earth-Based Religions/Shamanism and Native American Studies on Amazon.com , and it has sold 500,000 copies since September of 1993.

"Andrews was born in Dayton, Ohio to Donald J. Andrews and Shirley Andrews. He was one of seven children, all of whom had first names that began with the letter "T." His four brothers were Terry, Tim, Tom, and Tony; his two sisters were Tamara and Theresa. He died in Jackson, Tennessee; the cause of his death was cancer. His wife, Kathy Andrews, survives him."
