Today I have award-winning author, Pamela Thibodeax with me. Welcome, Pam!
When you were young, did you ever see writing as a career or full-time profession? No. Never. I was always an avid reader, but never dreamed of being a writer.
Out of all the characters you’ve written about, is there one that is your favorite? Yes, the characters in The Visionary are some of my favorite. Although, I love my Tempered series characters too. Hmmm….Maybe there’s NOT a favorite LOL!
Have you ever won any awards for your writing? Yes, Keri’s Christmas Wish won 3rd place in the 2017 IDA awards! I’ve won awards for unpublished work back in the late 90’s, early 2000 but this is the first for a published work.
Do you have a special place where you like to write? Mostly just at my desk, although I’ve been known to carry a notebook and pen and write everywhere.
Your last name is obviously French. Does your Cajun heritage ever make its way into your books?Sometimes, mostly in my book The Visionary.
Have you ever received a rejection? What is one piece of advice you’d give to an unplublished writer? LOTS of rejections! My advice is Never Give Up!
Do you take time to plot and outline your books? Or do you like to write by the seat of your pants? I’m 100% SOTP writer. Plots, even synopsis written before the book intimidate me. Don’t ask me why, LOL, if I knew they wouldn’t do that. Just block me right up.
Do you ever talk about your next project or do you like to keep it a secret? Oh I don’t mind talking about it. When I have one. Right now I only have several “in the works” but not actively working on anything.
For as long as she can remember, Keri Jackson has despised the hype and commercialism around Christmas so much she seldom enjoys the holiday. Will she get her wish and be free of the angst to truly enjoy Christmas this year?
A devout Christian at heart, Jeremy Hinton, a Psychotherapist, Life Coach, Spiritual Mentor and Energy Medicine Practitioner has studied all of the world’s religions and homeopathic healing modalities. But when a rare bacterial infection threatens the life of the woman he loves, will all of his faith and training be for naught?
Find out in Keri’s Christmas Wish
Read an excerpt:
An image began to form in her mind…a young girl being led around on a horse by an ethereal figure. As the trio came closer, Keri felt as though she looked in a mirror. Her heart swelled. Tears clogged her throat, filled her eyes, and slipped down her cheeks.
The childlike voice reverberated through her entire body. Keri smiled and whispered, “Hello.”
Excitement lit the youngster’s eyes. Brilliant colors vibrated around her. “Do you know who I am?”
“You’re me as a little girl. That’s Spark, my horse who died when I was a teenager.”
Spark nodded his head as the girl giggled—a joyous melody that rang through the atmosphere. “No, silly, I’m your big sister. Only, I didn’t live very long.”
Tension seeped in, a mixture of shock and awe.
“Don’t be afraid. Ask mom.”
And then the mirage disappeared.
