PLEASE NOTE: I HAVE RETURNED TO MY GIVEN NAME FOR ALL WRITING AND SOCIAL MEDIA. TO SEE WHAT I'M READING THESE DAYS, PLEASE FRIEND/FOLLOW D'ANN MATEER. THANK YOU!

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 mothe

My grandmother on my father's side was a natural storyteller and told lots of funny and fascinating stories about her large family. My grandparents on my mother's side delved into genealogical research after they retired and so I learned some of the history they discovered in their research and travels. I have always loved history in general, but I find the history of real people living out ordinary lives quite fascinating, too! (less)

Hi, Stephanie! Sorry it took me so long to answer. I've been out of town visiting friends. :)

I have some big things coming this fall and into next year, and hopefully one of them will be audiobooks! My guess is 2022 for those, but if you want to pop over to my website and sign up for my newsletter I'll definitely announce when those are available! Thanks for asking. And so happy you enjoy the books!(less)

Quotes by Anne Mateer  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“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

“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

“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
