To those that are interested in taking a step of faith into their creativeness and ability to express what dwells inside them, I highly recommend this opportunity to allow your inner author to be exposed. The guidance Kyra gave me was personable and extremely helpful as I had dreamed of writing but never felt safe to express myself this way. Thank you Kyra and to all the other authors that helped me in this journey!


Casey Librizzi

Being a part of Own Your Awesome was truly exhilarating.  I am someone who has never written anything on that large of a platform. I never thought that my words would be read by so many. The process was organized and I felt supported every step of the way. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity.  I hope to be a part of the next one!

Our Journey: Turning Grief into Inspiration and Making Dreams Come True

Meet Todd & Kyra Schaefer

In the face of tragedy, we found a way to honor a dear friend's memory. When she tragically passed away, we couldn't help but feel that her voice had more to share in this world. She was passionate about writing and collaboration, so we rallied our friends and embarked on a mission to create a collaboration book that touched on themes of loss, love, self-healing, and joy. To our delight, it became a bestseller on day one, and we were over the moon.


But that was just the beginning.

We discovered a community of people like us—passionate about writing but unsure how to start and even less certain about how to become a published author. Once we cracked the code of publishing, we realized that we could help others achieve their dreams too.

We write, we dream, we laugh, we get seen, and we tell our stories. It's been nothing short of a miracle. And now, we want to share that miracle with you.

Our Mission: Empowering Writers to Share Their Stories and Make their Dreams of Authorship a Reality
