More About Pamela S. Thibodeaux
Award-winning author, Pamela S. Thibodeaux is the Co-Founder and a lifetime member of Bayou Writers Group in Lake Charles, Louisiana and the Owner/CEO of The Wordsmith Journal Magazine. Pamela grew up in the town of Iowa, Louisiana. She is a mother, grandmother and deeply committed Christian who firmly believes in God and His promises. "God is very real to me and I feel that people today need and want to hear more of His truths wherever they can glean them. People are hungry for practical (and real) Christian values, not some 'holier-than-thou' beliefs that are impossible to believe and impossible to live up to," Pamela says. "I do my best to encourage readers to develop a personal relationship with God. The deepest desire of my heart is to glorify God and to get His message of faith, trust and forgiveness to a hurting world." Multi-published in romantic fiction as well as creative non-fiction, her writing has been tagged as, "Inspirational with an Edge!" and reviewed as "steamier and grittier than the typical Christian novel without decreasing the message."

Reviews - What do customers think about Tempered Fire?
"...A poignant love story... that highlights a deep and powerful love between two warm and caring individuals." Oct 30, 2007
"Tempered Fire is a poignant love story about a young couple that endures many challenges. This is an engaging novel that highlights a deep and powerful love between two warm and caring individuals."
"Amber Harris is the only daughter of the wealthy ranch owner Craig Harris. She falls madly in love with Stanley Morrison a ranch worker at the neighboring Bar S. Ranch. Stanley comes from a different background and has a past that he is trying to put to rest."
"Amber's father is not happy about the relationship with his daughter and Stanley. He has trouble accepting that his daughter is growing up. This begins to become a problem for the father and daughter relationship. In addition to other forces that are trying to keep them apart."
"Stanley and Amber must decide if their love is enough to help them survive through the nay sayers or will their love simply be chalked up as young love that was unable to withstand the test of time."
"Your heart can't help but feel for this young couple as the author does an excellent job relating this adoring story."
4.5 stars Apr 7, 2007
The love between Craig Harris and his lady, Tamara, that enchanted readers in Tempered Hearts has brought about two children, Amber and Ace. Now, Craig must learn that the hardest part of being a father is letting go as his daughter grows up and falls in love with Stan Morrison, a hard-working, earnest youth who is utterly devoted to Amber and who has giant dreams. The young love is tested and tempered many times over the course of two years, but each challenge makes their romance more than just a feeling.
***** There are very few inspirational writers that have the courage to write stories that have real people in them, people with flaws, who might be provoked to curse, and whose thoughts wander into the "red zone," despite the fact that in real life, people of faith do all these things. Three of my favorite authors, Karen Kingsbury, Andrew Greeley, and Pamela Thibedeaux have that sort of courage and the talent to make their stories work on a human level, remain clean, and be inspiring. If you have ever considered Christian fiction bland, then check out the Tempered series. It will be well worth your time. The family is one I love revisiting with each new book, and am confident you will as well. *****
So you want to get married... Jan 21, 2007
Amber Nicole Harris, beautiful, rich, generous, loving, giving young woman whom everyone loved, and Stanley Morrison, a poor young man with only his deep faith in God and his skill with horses, fell in love the first time their gazes locked. That was just the beginning.
For over a year, they fought obstacles to their love. Obstacles such as Lori Strickland, a spoiled little rich girl, too young to even think of a steady boyfriend; Craig Harris, Amber's father, who was over-protective and didn't want to lose his `baby girl'; and passion, red-hot and simmering, that battered for release each time Amber and Stanley were together.
Amber and Stanley learned how to rely upon their deep, abiding faith in God and allow Him to live through them, making it possible for them to work through their troubles and come forth as shining gold. However, it wasn't a happy-ever-after romance at this time. The strongest trial yet came upon them shortly after they arrived home from their honeymoon. Was their faith in God strong enough to conquer this new obstacle? Was their love deep enough, unselfish enough, to see them through?
Tempered Fire is not only the story of a raging romance between two young Christians. It is also the story of a couple who did not want to lose their firstborn to a man they knew little about. Fear and doubt along with the natural feelings of parents not wanting to see their daughter grow up made it extra difficult for them to accept any man in their daughter's life. But there comes a time when a child must build a life of his/her own and Craig and Tamera Harris, who met and married in Tempered Hearts, had to learn to let go of Amber with their blessing.
Scott and Katrina Hensley, who met in Tempered Dreams and married just six months ago, arrive with good news of their own.
Tempered Fire, the third book in the Tempered Series, is the best one yet. You'll laugh and cry and laugh again. You'll thrill as you watch God sort this young couple's troubles and pour blessings upon them in spite of the obstacles. God never promises to take away our problems. He promises to make us a way to get through them.
