About this author

While I have been writing for what feels like my whole life, I began seriously studying the craft in 2000. Since then I have completed five novels, had several pieces published in local periodicals, attended six writing conferences and managed to final in ACFW's Genesis contest in 2006, 2008, and 2009.

“I dropped to my knees beside him. His eyes fluttered open, head looked to one side. “Go.”
At least that was what it looked like he’d said. I heard nothing but the whine of engines circling the track.

Anne Mateer

“My heart leapt. Would the Lord see fit to bring me a missionary man some day?”

“I wanted to grab him by the collar and strangle him. Or kiss him. I wasn't sure which.”
