Anna Payne


Anna spends her time staring into a computer screen whether she is working, writing, or editing. That is why it is so fun to hang out with her grandson, children, or just walk outside. But burning easily makes it difficult to spend too much time outdoors.

Anna does web consulting, working mainly for one company, Nature’s Select, which delivers dogfood! She also carves out time to write and to learn the writing craft. She comes from a family of writers, her mom, her grandmother, and several other family members are engaged in the art of writing.

Anna likes to study the art of writing, learning to edit her own work, and exploring the creation of an author platform. When she isn’t at the computer writing or editing she is discussing plots with any one of her children – including her talented son-in-law. She has been discovered asking the advice of her cats. “They have good ideas.” she says. The world around her offers a variety of sinister plots even if it is just someone waiting for the bus.

Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
I'm currently editing two of my grandmother's books and will soon be editing my mom's book. I'm currently editing the Planted Flowers Bible Study Workbook and the Pray Specifically Journal Workbook. I hope to edit the Mathews Matchmakers series book one and book two before the end of 2017.
Who are your favorite authors?
Grace Livingston Hill, Anna Daisy Suderman, and Mary Stewart. I love the way Grace Livingston Hill added a moral or demonstrated a scriptural reference in each book. My grandmother, Anna Daisy Suderman, wrote poetry, scripture songs, and sermons as well as a family history. Mary Stewart still holds me spell bound with her mystery books. I love the way her first sentence holds me enthralled.
