Anna Schmidt is a three-time finalist for the coveted RITA award presented annually by Romance Writers of America. Her novel A SISTER’S FORGIVENESS gave Anna her fourth finalist honor for the Reviewers’ Choice Awards from Romantic Times magazine. She has won that award twice before. Publisher's Weekly had high praise for Anna's WWII series--THE PEACEMAKERS--stating that Schmidt seamlessly integrates...actual events, and the courageous real-life individuals who fought against Hitler’s regime, with her fictional characters and their story, to produce a strong tale of hope and love in the face of insurmountable obstacles." The author of over twenty-five works of historical and contemporary fiction Anna has worked in the corporate world for two international companies, taught at the college level and is a popular presenter of hands-on workshops.
