Guest Blog Featuring Lorelei Confer


Giveaway alert!!

Congratulations to "hregtvedt", the winner of a copy of Deadly Deliverance! Thank you to all who entered.

Good morning! I’m Lorelei Confer and I write romantic suspense.

I wrote my first story in the fourth grade in the form of a play which actually was produced by my teacher for parents and students. I continued writing and majored in English in College. I practice every day to improve my craft. 

An author of romantic suspense I love reading almost as much as writing. I have filled my book shelves with my favorites, i.e. Harlan Coban, Eliza March, Johanna Lindsey, Kathy Carmichael, Kathleen Woodiwiss, Andrew Gross, Terri Garey, Karen Rose, Rocki St. Claire, LuAnn Rice, and Jill Gregory, just to mention a few, as well as all the classics.

I live on a peninsula in the mid west coast of Florida with my husband, two cats, and AJ, my long haired Chihuahua.

I love hearing from readers so please visit my website: www.loreleiconfer.com or blog at www.loreleiconfer.blogspot.com.

In doing research for my first book, Deadly Deception, I learned so much about Human Sex Trafficking and I really wanted to get the message out that this horrific crime is happening in your own backyard. I met with an undercover detective assigned to our local task force for human trafficking and from all the information I gleaned from him and numerous other interviews I have been able to put together realistic stories.
My second book, Deadly Revenge, happens in the North Carolina mountains which is the eighth likely state for human trafficking due to their interstate going north and south and east and west. Who knew?
I’ve just finished my third book in the ‘Deadly’ series, Deadly Deliverance, which is also about human sex trafficking but from an investigators point of view. It’s primarily located in the Washington, DC area and is available from Siren BookStrand Jan 17th, 2012.
I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy researching and writing them.

I will be giving away an eBook copy of Deadly Deliverance to one lucky commenter!

  4. I've seen several shows on sex trafficking and it always gives me the chills! Such a shocking and terrifying crime to have happen in our own back yard! I can't imagine how much more info you must have learned in your research! I've always thought in the back of my mind that maybe that is what happened to Natalie Holloway! Especially after watching the movie Taken.

    I've added your books to my tbr list. They are intriguing and sound perfect for a suspense novel series. I'm also going to tell my mom since this is her kind of premise.

  5. Human Trafficking is a serious problem and hregtvedt, I've thought the same thing about Natalie Holloway, esp. after I did all the research.

  6. Tammy, I was surprised with all the info I came up with concerning North Carolina as well. I look at it as an entirely different vacation spot now. There's also lots of sexual tension as well as sex in the book and it keeps you on the edge of your seat.
