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 sixty-thousand 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. Last January, 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. The first two books in the series, Every Little Thing and Two A.M., are available for purchase as trade paperbacks on amazon. Every Little Thing is also available as an ebook on amazon, and Two A.M. will be available for download sometime this spring.
There are three additional stand alone women’s fiction novels now available: Come Home For Christmas, Picket Fences and Two Story Home. In addition to the women’s fiction novels, there are also two new young adult novels: Compositions in the Key of G and Wanna Play?
Take a few minutes to look around and then if you have time, hop on over to amazon and try one of my books!
While you’re reading, I’ll be editing book three of the series (Blind) and writing a stand alone, tentatively titled Truth Is.

author displays true artistry when she presents a story with which the reader
can relate and gives us characters who engage us to want to know more about
them. The characters in Small Hours are well-defined and distinct--real. Their
story is rife with interpersonal conflicts and palpable human emotions that will
capture the reader. Therese Kinkaide writes with elegance and honesty and Small
Hours is, in my opinion, a must read."
