MORE ABOUT ANNA...
Writing in both the romance and inspirational categories, Anna enjoys researching the historical settings she favors when telling her tales. Publisher's Weekly had high praise for Anna's WWII series--THE PEACEMAKERS--saying that Schmidt "effortlessly incorporates. . .actual events, and the courageous real-life individuals who fought against Hitler’s regime, together with her literary characters and their story, to make a strong narrative of love and hope in the face of insurmountable obstacles." Critics also have known as Anna 'a natural writer, turning tales reminiscent of older favorites like Miracle on 34th Street.' Her characters are known as 'realistic' and 'endearing' and one reviewer raved, "I adore Anna Schmidt's style of writing!"
Having lived her own battle with uterine cancer and the death of her beloved husband, Anna found wellsprings of compassion and caring she never knew she possessed when relatives and friends faced their own health problems, Anna frequently pulls the questions she's faced in her own life in creating her characters. Readers regularly write to Anna to let her understand which a character's story touched them on such a personal level that it had been as if Anna knew what they had been going through in their own lives.
The author of more than thirty works of contemporary and historical fiction, Anna has worked in the corporate world for two international companies, educated at the school level and has been a popular presenter of hands-on instruction.
