Lorelei Confer lives on a peninsula in the mid-west coast of Florida with her high school sweetheart, now husband, and AJ, her long-haired Chihuahua.
In the fourth grade, she wrote her first story—something about getting a shot at the doctors—that was produced by the teacher for parents and students in an assembly. When she was older, she spilled her guts in a journal every night and wrote long newsy love letters to Vietnam.
She is a multi-published author of romantic suspense with two series: The Deadly series and the Saddle Creek series. She also has written numerous novellas and short stories.
She loves to hear from her readers so if you want to stay “in the know” visit her website, sign up for her newsletters and contact her.
Beverley: Which genre or genres do you write or prefer to write? And why?
Lorelei: I prefer to read and write romantic suspense and thrillers, even some true crime, i.e. Sandra Brown, Harlan Coben, Nora Roberts, etc. It’s what I grew up reading and it’s stuck.
Beverley: Who influenced you the most in deciding to become a writer?
Lorelei: My fourth-grade teacher, Ms. Spotts, made one of my writing assignments, something about a ‘going to the doctor to get shot’ into a play where a few of the students were cast members. The parents and other classes were invited to attend the assembly as well. It was a huge pat on the back. She also suggested I keep a diary and later I kept a journal and wrote every night. When my high school sweetheart left for his first tour of duty in Vietnam I wrote newsy love letters to him every night. Writing has become a great outlet for my angst and fear of the unknown. I give some of my worries and concerns to the characters in my books. LOL
Beverley: What gets your creative juices flowing?
Lorelei: Thinking about the characters in my story I have plotted in my head but have yet been able to put on paper. Plot points, their sacrifices, their conflicts, and their motivations are swirling and dancing in my head so when I do sit down to write it all comes right out.
Beverley: Do you have a favorite cartoon character? Why?
Lorelei: I remember Might Mouse, ‘came to save the day.’
Beverley: Who would you love most to meet ‘in person’ and why?
Lorelei: I would love to meet Harlan Coben. He is such a prolific writer and his research is spot on and in-depth. I can’t imagine his process from beginning to end and how long it actually takes him to right one of his complex thrillers.
Beverley: If you had an unexpected free day what would you do with it?
Lorelei: Read…Never enough time.
Beverley: What are you working on now?
Lorelei: I have a new release, Deadly Homecoming, the 5th in the Deadly series on preorder now and releases Feb 18th , 2020.
Then, April 14th , A Cowboy’s Sweet Spot, will release and ne a part of Romances on the Range 2020 Cowboy/Western Anthology.
Lost and Found (working title but another book in the Deadly series) will release in Jun/Jul.
Moonlight Kisses and MugShots, 4th in the Saddle Creek series will release about Sept, 2020.
And then I have Saddle Creek Christmas Romance 2 which will release early November.
My plate is pretty full with release but I also have a couple others written and in various stages that I’ll carry over into 2021.
