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.

Cover Reveal!

I love finding obscure bits of history that I can build a story around. My soon-to-come novella came about in just that way. As I was looking through some history timelines, I came across a reference to The Toledo War in Ohio. With a little more digging, i discovered that the state of Ohio and the territory of Michigan each did a some grandstanding over the official placement of the line betwee...

“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

“I turned to find Frank standing behind me, his eyes also fixed on the ticket. And it seemed from that moment on I couldn’t get him out from underfoot.”
Anne Mateer, Wings of a Dream
