Author Spotlight: Pamela S. Thibodeaux

Today I am introducing everyone to Pamela S. Thibodeaux. You may have heard of her and if not her books are defintely something you should check out. Pam is a published author with The Wild Rose Press. Some of her books include: A Hero for Jessica; Choices; Cathy's Angel; The Inheritance. Here is her biography from her website: Born May 19, 1961, Pamela S Thibodeaux is a housewife, the mother of four children (two by blood and two by marriage) and grandmother of two. She currently resides in her hometown of Iowa, Louisiana (about 15 miles east of Lake Charles) with her husband Terry. Though Pam now works in Lake Charles as a Licensed Sales Producer in the Insurance industry her past work history is as colorful as her writing resume! Leaving in March of 1978 to marry at sixteen, Pam obtained her GED from Iowa High School in April that same year. At that point-between marrying and having babies- she began her career as a bookkeeper by keeping records for her father’s construction business. Since, she has worked in professions ranging from cashier in fast food restaurants and convenience stores to a full-charge bookkeeper and tax preparer. In 1992 she earned an Associate Degree in Office Occupations, specializing in Computer Applications from Sowella Regional Technical Institute. She is also the Co-founder and a member of the Bayou Writers Group in Lake Charles, Louisiana. A former member of American Christian Fiction Writers (formerly ACRW), Golden Triangle Writers Guild, Coeur de Louisiane and RWA, Pam won Coeur's 1999 "Diamond In The Rough" as well as their 2000 "Ruby" Award and received her RWA Pro Pin in 2001. Multi-published in fiction and non-fiction, her writing has been tagged as "Inspirational with an Edge!" and reviewed as "Steamier and grittier than the typical Christian without decreasing the message." A committed Christian, she firmly believes in God and His promises. God is very real to her and she feels that people today need and want to hear more of His truths wherever they can glean them. Although her writing is Inspirational, she does her best to encourage readers to develop a personal relationship with God. The deepest desire of her heart is to glorify God and to get His message of faith, trust and forgiveness to a hurting world. Her hope is that all of her stories will touch the lives of everyone who reads them and - in some way - bring them a truer knowledge of God and urge them into a closer walk with Him.
