Interview with the Lovely Lorelei Confer

. Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Deadly Deception (Siren Publishing Classic)JM: Hi Lorelei Confer! Welcome to Meta Modo. Let's jump right into the interview.
LC: Thank you for having me!

JM: How long have you been writing romance and what got you started?

LC: I’ve been writing since the fourth grade when we had an assignment to write a play. My teacher chose mine to produce for students and parents alike. It was a lot of fun. I’ve been writing since then in composition books or journals and have tons of ideas I would like to write about.

JM: I hear you have two books out. Can you tell my grrls what they're about?

LC: Deadly Deception and Deadly Revenge are the 1st and 2nd books in a series of romantic suspense about human trafficking. I’m currently writing the 3rd in the series.
      I became interested in human trafficking when I read an article in the local newspaper explaining that the local task force (didn’t know we had one) had performed a successful sting operation. It was happening in my town or my own back yard so to speak and I never knew. It hit really close to home.
      Since then I’ve become an advocate to stop human trafficking so all the books in this series carries a message. There is also lots of sexual tension between the hero and heroine and real sex that keeps you turning the pages to the happy ever after ending.

JM: I can't tell you how great I think it is that you are using your writing to get the word out about this horrific crime. And your books sound fantastic! Def going on my "to read" list. What are you writing now?

LC: I’m currently working on the 3rd book of the series, Deadly Deliverance, and expect to finish it in the next few months and have a release date of early next year.

JM: Do you have any writing snacks to feed your muse?

LC: Who doesn’t have chocolate? I love the mini Milky Way bars.

JC: Mmmm! Milky Way! My muse loves Reeses Pieces. (: Let's talk fans; have you received wacky or creepy fan letters yet?

LC: No, but I’m still building my fan base and expect some letters soon.

JM: Any good boyfriend stories that inspire the heroes in your stories?

LC: Yes, my husband of more years than I want to admit to would send love messages through a sales rep from his work to mine. Most of them were simply that he loved me, others were that he would pick me up at 7 or 8 o’clock that night to go do something.

JM: Any bad boyfriends that inspire the villains in your stories?

LC: Yes, I had my heart broken when I was 15 years old by a boyfriend and I’ve always wanted revenge. I’ve wanted to show him how I turned out, sort of like Toby Keith’s country song, "Look at me Now”.

JM: Your new boy toy wants to make out but you need a breath refresher. What do you choose, mint, gum, or spray?

LC: Gum so we can share EVERYTHING.


LC: My first date with my husband when I wrecked his car. I was going to take my driver’s test the following morning and asked him to drive his car on the back roads of Pennsylvania one last time. I went around a turn too fast and sideswiped an embankment on the passenger side. He later sold the car for a few hundred dollars but we were never able to get that door open.

JM: Wow! Now that's a bad date! Why don't we talk books? What's a good book you've recently read?

LC: Coming Home by Mariah Stewart, really puts me in the book, personally.
The Chesapeake Diaries: Coming Home

JM: Your favorite book of all time?

LC: Shanna by Kathleen Woodiwiss. I know it’s old but it is still the best. I’ve read it over and over again.

JM: I've had lots of fun getting to know you, Lorelei. Thanks so much for stopping by Meta Modo!

LC: Thank you so much for having me! I had a great time getting to know you and your followers as well.
