 Hey, friends!

I’m Anna Schaeffer, and I believe stories can change the world. If you’re a teen, my books are for you! My stories follow quirky, yet relatable characters as they navigate the high school years and discover their place in the world.

If we haven’t become friends yet, please say hi before you leave! I love chatting with readers. I also love talking about writing, so if that’s your thing, let’s chat!


Just One Thing - Available for Pre-Order NOW!


Sadie Franklin wants to start over, but first she must return to everything she wants to forget.

Senior year in Seattle is the perfect chance for a former party girl to start over, right? All she has to do is build a relationship with her detached father, make decent grades, and avoid her ex-friends. Oh, and convince everyone she really has changed. Easy peasy.

The first chance she gets, she wants to hop on the next flight back to Pecan Creek, Georgia. Although the tea there is sweet enough to give her cavities, at least the people love her and believe she has a purpose bigger than her painful past. Sadie meets a new friend looking for her own fresh start, who shows Sadie the value of true friendship and reminds her there’s always more to a person’s story than what’s on display.

But figuring out the next step is messy, and it’s hard to change a reputation. An after-school job, constant arguments with her dad, and an undefined relationship with the wonderfully annoying Georgia guy who won her heart only add to the crazy.

When tragedy collides with Sadie’s carefully re-built life, she learns that trusting in a God she can’t see is more difficult than she ever imagined.

Is starting over worth the cost?
