About Tempered Fire, Book 3: Tempered Series

Amber Harris is a good girl on the brink of womanhood. Stanley Morrison is a young man at the start of his life. Will they survive the wishes of everyone around them with their relationship intact?

When did you write Tempered Fire?

Tempered Fire was initially written as the 2nd story in a “two-book” series (Tempered Hearts & Tempered Fire). However, when the other two (Tempered Dreams & Tempered Joy) evolved over the course of time, Tempered Fire turned out to be the third in a 4 part (one day 5 part) series. Tempered Fire and Tempered Dreams run parallel in time and was initially published by ComStar Media in 2006. The reprint is published by my personal imprint, Temperance Publishing.

What was the spark that gave you the story idea?

Every daddy is challenged with letting go of his little girl and when Craig Harris, the hero in Tempered Hearts, thinks to himself he would be “made of tougher stock if he had a daughter” I could imagine this big, tough cowboy having to face the fact and let go when his baby girl grows up and finds love of her own.

Why do readers buy Tempered Fire?

Of course I pray folks buy Tempered Fire because they’ve fallen in love with the characters and want to follow the series, but I also hope readers connect with the story itself and find encouragement in dealing with the challenges all parents face in raising their children up in “the way they should go” as the Bible instructs.
