My name is Ellisa Barnes. I am currently 24 years old and a Child & Adolescent Psychology major at Southern New Hampshire University. I grew up near Kansas City (Go Chiefs! #ChiefsKingdom) with a disorder called Selective Mutism; although, I was not made aware of this disorder until the spring of 2019 at 23 years old. I’ve been writing stories pretty much my entire life and have self-published two novels, which you can learn more about by visiting my Goodreads page (click this link here!).

In 2017, I began a subscription box business entitled Scribe Stash, that catered to writers and readers of young adult (and adult) fiction. During this time I wrote and edited full product and book reviews to include in a newsletter. This endeavor was short-lived and did not make it through 2018.

I began this blog in November 2019 (during National Novel Writing Month!) to raise awareness and understanding of Selective Mutism, a disorder that is notoriously misunderstood and misrepresented.

Please note that most names of people and locations mentioned in my blog have been altered or changed to protect identities.

I currently have a Go Fund Me fundraiser in progress! Trying to get those much needed braces! Click here to donate!
