The seeds for The Empowered Press were planted in late 2017 by founder Jill Carlyle. After graduating earlier that year from the University of Central Florida with a Bachelor's degree in English, Jill's passion for studying literature naturally segued into writing her own stories. She quickly learned that today's world of traditional publishing routinely rejects important stories that need to be told for the likes of celebrities and social media influencers with hundreds of thousands of followers. Jill quickly discovered how frustrating and deflating traditional publishing can be. She decided to take matters into her own hands, publish her own work and help other writers do the same.

Jill's background includes a double master of art in English and Creative Writing. Over the years, she has worked with various independent publishers as well as publishing services. Additionally, Jill is an adjunct professor of English and Literature. She has a sharp eye for great storytelling and a talent for helping writers publish their stories.


 Jill Carlyle, is the best-selling author of Finding Fifty: A Memoir of Rising in Midlife and the forthcoming fiction novel Her Story So Far scheduled for publication December 2022. She has authored various essays and articles on everything from family to the female voice.
