Meet our authors
Over the course of a dozen years, the team at Empower has helped more than 160 authors publish their books. For most , we were their first publisher. Several writers first published by our team went on to sign contracts with traditional, royalty based publishing houses--fulfilling their dreams of having their mysteries, romances, science fiction stories and thrillers published in the mainstream press.
We have published novels, memoirs, cookbooks, children's books, graphic books, religious books, poetry collections, and anthologies. We have published authors in every decade of life. Our oldest author, Susan Rudd, published her first book at age 103. Our youngest author, Brody McCanless, published his first when he was only 10.
Because we can't efficiently list all our authors and all their titles, we've chosen to lift up our most recent and most currently active authors, along with a little information about each and links to their available titles. As you become part of our Empower family, we look forward to including you on this list as well.
