About this author

Born in West Virginia, a coal miner's granddaughter, Pam was raised in a tiny town in Northeast Ohio and raised by a tribe of wild Pentecostals. Pam cut her teeth on the back of a church pew, grew up in clapboard churches, tabernacles, tent revivals, and for many years in a grand cathedral -- a mega-church.

Pam's first book, Southern Fried Women, was a finalist in Fiction and Literature-Short Story, Best Books of 2006 Book Awards, and a finalist for ForeWord Magazine's Book of the Year.

Pam recently finished writing Televenge, a story about the dark side of televangelism. Published by Satya House October 2012. Named as an Editors' Pick from BookExpo America 2012 Library Journal! Followed by fantastic reviews by both the Librar

Televenge by Pamela King Cable
"As the publisher of Televenge, I'm obviously biased. However, this is the book that made me change my stance from "We will never publish fiction" to "We absolutely MUST publish this book!" There are few stories that pull you in and hold onto you..." Read more of this review »

Televenge by Pamela King Cable
"Televenge is amazing! I read a review copy of the book and I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN. It reminded me a bit of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander and a bit of Barbara Kingsolver's Poisonwood Bible. I would call Televenge a Mystery / Thriller, but definitely..." Read more of this review »

Helen Keller
“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired, and success achieved.”
Helen Keller

Dorothy Allison
“Everything I know, everything I put in my fiction, will hurt someone somewhere as surely as it will comfort and enlighten someone else. What then is my responsibility? What am I to restrain? What am I to fear and alter--my own nakedness or the grief of the reader? I want my stories to be so good they are unforgettable; to make my ideas live and my own terrors real for people I will never meet. It is a completely amoral writer's lust. If we begin to agree that some ideas are too dangerous, too bad to invite inside our heads, then we stop the storyteller completely. We silence everyone who would tell us something that might be painful in our vulnerable moments.”
Dorothy Allison

“Life is change. Growth is optional. Choose wisely. ”
Karen Kaiser Clark

Charles Bukowski

if it doesn't come bursting out of you
in spite of everything,
don't do it.
unless it comes unasked out of your
heart and your mind and your mouth
and your gut,
don't do it.
if you have to sit for hours
staring at your computer screen
or hunched over your
searching for words,
don't do it.
if you're doing it for money or
don't do it.
if you're doing it because you want
women in your bed,
don't do it.
if you have to sit there and
rewrite it again and again,
don't do it.
if it's hard work just thinking about doing it,
don't do it.
if you're trying to write like somebody
forget about it.
if you have to wait for it to roar out of
then wait patiently.
if it never does roar out of you,
do something else.

if you first have to read it to your wife
or your girlfriend or your boyfriend
or your parents or to anybody at all,
you're not ready.

don't be like so many writers,
don't be like so many thousands of
people who call themselves writers,
don't be dull and boring and
pretentious, don't be consumed with self-
the libraries of the world have
yawned themselves to
over your kind.
don't add to that.
don't do it.
unless it comes out of
your soul like a rocket,
unless being still would
drive you to madness or
suicide or murder,
don't do it.
unless the sun inside you is
burning your gut,
don't do it.

when it is truly time,
and if you have been chosen,
it will do it by
itself and it will keep on doing it
until you die or it dies in you.

there is no other way.

and there never was.”
Charles Bukowski

Harlan Ellison
“It is not merely enough to love literature if one wishes to spend one's life as a writer. It is a dangerous undertaking on the most primitive level. For, it seems to me, the act of writing with serious intent involves enormous personal risk. It entails the ongoing courage for self-discovery. It means one will walk forever on the tightrope, with each new step presenting the possiblity of learning a truth about oneself that is too terrible to bear.”
Harlan Ellison
