Thank you, Debby for having me!

2. Let’s hear about your latest release with a quick blurb.

The Inheritance
© 2007
Publisher: The Wild Rose Press
ISBN# 1-60154-055-8
The Inheritance is about the chance we all long for…the chance to start over. Widowed at age thirty-nine and suffering from empty nest syndrome, Rebecca Sinclair is overshadowed by grief and loneliness. Her husband has been deceased for a year, her oldest child has moved to New York in pursuit of an acting career and her youngest child is attending college in France. Having spent over half of her life as a wife and mother, she has no idea what God has in store for her now. Will an unexpected inheritance in the wine country of New York bring meaning and purpose to her life and give her the courage to love again? US Postal worker Raymond Jacobey has been in love with the little widow since he first set eyes on her. A wanderer searching for the ever-illusive soul mate, Ray has never stayed in one place too long. Raised by self-centered, high-power executives, he’s longed for the idyllic life of residing in a cozy house in a small town with the love of his life. Will he gain the heart of the lovely widow or will he lose her to the wine country of New York?

5. Any good reviews?

The Inheritance is a novel about strength, unexpected miracles, friends and family, and an unending faith in the Lord. Pamela Thibodeaux has just become one of my new favorite authors. I really enjoy after each story Pamela's summary about the book in addition to her message about the Lord. She uses her strong faith to relay the message of it in her books. This is truly a blessing. I look forward to reading the other novels by Pamela Thibodeaux. ~ Reviewed by Cheryl for Cheryl’s Book Nook & Sunday Salon

I enjoyed this short story, and especially the scintillating descriptions author, Pamela Thibodeaux employed in it. There is an air of sensuality throughout the story, an attraction so strong between the two main characters that it left me almost breathless. But this is a sweet romance, no sexual scenes, and frankly, it didn’t need them. The romantic tension was kept high, but done in a respectful way that truly impressed me. Some scenes seemed a little telling, at times, but over all it was well done. It contained a good climax that built suddenly, and a satisfying conclusion to both the suspenseful part of the story as well as the romance. A good, sweet read charged with attraction but an emphasis on true love. I recommend it to women of all ages. ~ Reviewed by Violet for The Long and the Short of It ~

6. Do you have any other books available or working on at the moment?

The Visionary
© 2008
Publisher: Enspiren Press
978-1-897540-12-1 Electronic book - ISBN978-1-897540-11-4 Print book-ISBN

A Visionary is someone who sees into the future, Taylor Forrestier sees into the past but only as it pertains to her work. Hailed by Architectural Digest and Architectural Review as “a visionary with an instinct for beauty and an eye for the unique” Taylor is undoubtedly a brilliant architect and gifted designer. But she and twin brother Trevor, share more than a successful business. The two share a childhood wrought with lies and deceit and the kind of abuse that’s disgustingly prevalent in today’s society. Can the love of God and the awesome healing power of His grace and mercy free the twins from their past and open their hearts to the good plan and the future He has for their lives?


Tempered Joy
© 2008
Publisher: ComStar Media
ISBN# tba
All around rodeo cowboy and heir to the Rockin’ H Ranch, Ace Harris is determined not to fall in love. He’s only loved one woman in his life, his mother, and no one can even come close to filling her boots. Lexie Morgan thinks rodeo cowboys have rocks for brains and a death wish for a soul. A broken childhood and the death of her father and best friend leave her doubting and questioning God (despite her years of religious upbringing) and afraid of love. Can two young people who clash from the onset learn to trust in the healing power of God and find love and happiness amidst tragedy and grief?

7. It’s clear to see you enjoy writing but even the best authors suffer from writer’s block. How do you solve that problem?

I’ve never really suffered from writer’s block as much as burnout. A lot of work is involved in the editing, promoting aspect of a writer’s career and my time is so very limited that I tend to over-extend myself. However, the times I’ve been stuck on a project it is usually due to the fact that I’m trying to do it my way instead of allowing God to speak through me and the characters. Once I get focused again, things seem to flow a lot easier.

8. Do any of your characters resemble real people or are they totally fictional?

I believe there are always aspects of people we know in the characters we create, but to pinpoint those aspects would be hard as my characters always take on a personality of their own.

9. Are there morals to your stories that you hope your readers might learn from?

Although I write Inspirational, I try not to preach but to show the reality of a personal relationship with Christ through my characters. Yes, there are morals and standards set forth in Biblical principles, but I hope readers find them encouraging and not stuffy by the way they are upheld by the characters.
