Take 5 With Pamela S. Thibodeaux

Q1. What's your guilty pleasure when it comes to food and drink?

Pamela: Bread is by far my guilty pleasure. I love it in nearly every form….wheat, white, rye, biscuits, cookies…you get my drift. As for drink, a good Margarita never hurts but other than that I’m a wine-cooler kind of gal. Occasionally that is. My main drink is water with a glass of milk on a regular basis. Not a huge fan of soft drinks. Juice is nice too or V8 when I want something different. And eggnog during the holidays, LOL!

Q2. What's your guilty pleasure when it comes to books?

Pamela: Nora Roberts books! Any and all…romances, suspense (no JD Robb though), her Born In trilogy is by far my favorite of all time, but I also have the Three Sisters Island trilogy and ….well too many to list. Suffice it to say she is my ‘go to’ author when I want to escape into a good book.

Q3. What's the worst review you ever received?
Pamela: The worst review I ever received was actually 5 not 1. A reviewer read and trashed my entire Tempered series & the spin off novella in one fell swoop. Her remarks were so heated, she actually challenged my faith because of the stories.

Q4. What did you do, if anything, after reading that review?
Pamela: After asking her not to publish them anywhere (which she ignored) I licked my wounds a bit and shrugged it off. After all, she is the minority in a whole bunch of readers who love the books and characters.

In this business, you have to take the good with the bad and not take either personally. Reading is subjective. I’ve also had several reviews I responded politely to and those with constructive criticism help me grow as a writer.

Q5. Do you listen to music during any of the phases of writing a book?
Pamela: If you do, what kind of music. No, not at all. Except for heavy metal and rap, I love almost all music so much so that when I listen, I’m usually moving. That does not bode well for me when it comes to writing. I need quiet to be in the zone. That said, having a radio or television on in another room doesn’t usually bother me.

  2. Hi Joan and Pam,

    Very interesting questions and answers! Bad reviews are upsetting--but better than being ignored. As to music, I love music but can't listen when I work either. It distracts me. I have to hear the words I'm writing in my head. Pam, best wishes for the success of this holiday work.

    2. Hello, Jacquie. I'm the same way. Love music, but I can no longer listen to it while I write.

  3. Thanks for recommending Nora Roberts. My 14th published novel is coming next spring and I have never read a Nora Roberts book. Comments from others have made me think she was a hack. I will give her a try, on your say-so. Thanks.

    2. Wow. It's difficult to believe you haven't read Nora. She's amazing kind of like the Mozart of the writing world.

  4. This is my first time in a collaborative box set, and a great one to get spread my fledgeling wings. Mistletoe, Snow, and Suspense's five stories are great reads for nights that turn dark early. Thank you, Joan for including our collection in today's post.

  6. God questions and answers. I do listen to music while writing, but only when I need to be in a certain frame of mind in the story.
