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

My grandmother on my father's side was a natural storyteller and told lots of funny and fascinating stories about her large family.

When a beloved author switches genres, I go into the new book with a bit of trepidation. And so I put off opening Laurie Alice Eakes’s first contemporary novel, for fear I wouldn’t love it as much as I’ve loved her historical fiction.

I needn’t have worried. Once I started reading, I couldn’t stop.

The Mountain Midwife by Laurie Alice EakesThe Mountain Midwife has everything–romance, suspense, mystery. You root for Ashley and Hunter fr...

“But perhaps understanding didn’t matter as much as I imagined. Perhaps that was the true definition of faith.”
Anne Mateer, Wings of a Dream

“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

“Keep on. God gives us dreams of what our lives will be, but He doesn’t guarantee them. Just asks us to trust Him with the changes.”
Anne Mateer, Wings of a Dream
