Welcome to Lorelei Bluffs
Welcome to Lorelei Bluffs, Illinois! Don’t look for it on a map, you won’t find it. But take my word for it. Lorelei Bluffs is a (fictional) German town built on the bluffs of the Mississippi River, about two hours north and west of St. Louis, Missouri. Named after the founding father’s daughter, Lorelei Wagner, Lorelei Bluffs boasts a population of approximately 60,000 people, and the residents enjoy a sense of big city life as well as a sense of small town community.
Lorelei Bluffs is not only home to The Diner, Spin Record Shop, and Red Dog Bar & Grill, it is also the home of my new book series. What fascinates me most about this is that I never had any intention of writing a series. In January 2014, I was six chapters into a manuscript (which eventually became Come Home For Christmas), and I opened a new file and started writing. I had no idea what I was writing or who the characters in my head were, but they had quite a story to tell me. I finished the first draft of that book within a month, and as I did so, I realized I’d set myself up to write a companion novel. As I finished the companion novel roughly a month later, I realized the supporting couple in that manuscript had their own story to tell, and the series was born.
So far, I’m happy to say readers love Lorelei Bluffs and these characters as much as I do. They’ve certainly become part of my family, and I can’t wait to introduce them to all of you.
For some new family drama, you might check out The Williams Legacy, my other series. Currently, you can meet Ingrid Williams in Truth Is, Book 1, and Amber Williams in Other People’s Ugly, Book 2.
Since you’re here, I hope you take a few minutes to look around my site! In addition to the series books, I also have several stand alone women’s fiction novels and a few middle grade/young adult novels, also.
While you’re reading, I’m working on a new manuscript, getting Say Everything ready to go, and starting on edits for See Kate, Book 7 of Lorelei Bluffs and stand alone romance Green-Eyed Girl. I’m also planning a trip to Arizona for the summer so I can do some research for my stand alone novel, Safe as Houses.
