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. My first historical novel, Wings of a Dream, released in September 2011. My second, At Every Turn, is available now. But writing is only a piece of my life.

I am mostly just a woman trying to live her life in a manner pleasing to the Lord. That involves being a wife to Jeff and a mother to my three young adult children. Neither role has come easily, but both have stretched me, requiring me to press in closer to Jesus. And because of this, Jesu

Last weekend we moved child number two into his own apartment in Arkansas, where he will begin his first teaching job (4th grade). That means 2 of our 3 are “real” grownups with full time jobs to support themselves. I can’t believe we only have one left in college now!

Here are a few pictures of his cute little place. As you can see, he wants to make sure people know that even though he now liv...

“I can't get those kids out of my head. I see their little faces, and I know I have to help them." I raised up and looked him straight in the eye. "I have to do this. It's more than just wanting to be part of God's work in this world. It's an aching hole in my heart. I don't know any other way to fill it.”
Anne Mateer, At Every Turn

“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.

“I’ve often had to stand on the firm ground of my convictions when others thought I ought to be doing differently.”
Anne Mateer, Playing by Heart
