Maggie Ann Ryan is a YA Author who writes coming of age fiction and poetry. She believes that Unshakable Confidence comes from truly knowing who you are, and then finding the Dash of Courage within yourself to rebel against who society/family/expectations tell you that you “should” be in order to be “successful”.
As a Creative Heart gone Creative Rebel, Maggie believes that creative women especially fall into the trap of hiding who they truly are in order to fit in to “normal” life. But when you are not aligned with who you are in life, relationships, and career, you become unhappy, trapped, and start to believe that you actually are not “enough”.
And that simply isn’t true!
As a Creative Heart, Maggie understands the internal struggle of wanting to go for your creative dreams and shine as your beautiful, unique, amazing, creative self — but holding yourself back (for so many different reasons!). She knows first hand how hard it is to step out of the boxes that we are put into in order to “fit in” and “succeed” in a society that considers our creativity to only ever be a hobby. But Creative Hearts are not meant to shrink or conform in order to fit in to boxes that make others happy and ourselves unhappy.
If this resonates with you, it’s time to step onto your own creative path and shine fearlessly!!
Through her writing, YouTube channel, Podcast, online courses, the Creative Rebel’s Book Club, and live events, Maggie encourages creative women to conquer the insecurities and fears that are keeping them from the life they are meant to live — creative, unafraid, and filled with joy!
There are plenty of resources to help you wherever you are on your creative path!

Once you’ve conquered one fear, you can conquer them all. This is for the creative souls with hearts that feel everything so deeply. The painters who have never shown their art to another soul. The writers whose words remain hidden in journals. The makers who know this could be so much more than a hobby. You have passion, creativity, and dreams in your heart; and inside the depths of your soul, you know you’re supposed to be doing so much more with them than you are. But then the fear comes up. Then the expectations that your family, friends, job, society, (this list goes on) tell you “don’t”. And you have a choice. Listen to them and remain where you are, or smile seductively and step onto your own path in life. This is for you if you’re ready to take that step. If you’re ready to call yourself an author, or a painter, or a photographer. If you’re ready to show your art. And this is for you if the idea of showing your art to the world both excites you and terrifies you.

A raw and vulnerable peak inside the heart of a writer. Taken directly from the private journals of writer/author Maggie Ann Ryan, this book tells the story of a young woman who felt lost and unidentified, until one day she decided to stop letting other people define her soul, her life, and her heart. In this journey, she explores the idea that if she takes off the layers of expectations and the years of people pleasing, she might just be able to find herself
