Nothing Without Us is an own-voices, multi-genre collection of short stories where the protagonists identify as disabled, Deaf, neurodiverse, Spoonie, and/or manage mental illness.
Nathan Fréchette, Publishing Director of Renaissance, interviews Shannon Barnsley, author of Search and Seizure, which will appear in the Nothing Without Us anthology this fall.
Story summary: Cassie wants answers to why she’s having seizures, only to be met with the response, “It’s all in your head.” Things take a turn for the paranormal as Cassie finds herself back in the hospital once again, but this time, no one can tell she’s really there.
