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 love Christmas-themed fiction. Doesn’t matter the length–novels, novellas, short stories. And in the past couple of years I’ve been wondering if I could write some kind of a Christmas story. I didn’t know what, exactly. I didn’t have a specific idea. But when I heard about the Guideposts ACup of Christmas Cheerproject back in March I started thinking.


There would be two volumes of the book–one...

“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
