After suffering from anxiety and low

self-esteem due to wearing a back brace for scoliosis, Lisa B. Owens decided to use her story through The Silver-Horned Girl to help others. Owens graduated from Penn State University in 1987 with a BA in Journalism. She has been an Associate Producer at WTVR in Richmond, VA, a Special Projects Producer for NBC News Channel, and a consultant in a variety of areas. 

She currently lives in North Carolina with

her husband, Chris, and daughters,

Madison and McKenna. 


When a girl suddenly wakes up with a beeping silver horn growing out of her head, her normal life is changed. She finds herself scared, left out and bullied by her peers. 

Designed as a conversation starter for facing anxiety, The Silver-Horned Girl demonstrates to ages 10 & up how similarly insecurity affects everyone. Whether they experience a visible difference or one less obvious, no one should have to suffer in silence. 

In addition to this creative tale, a section has been dedicated to "Talking Points", a "Mental Health Tool Kit" and valuable resources for students, families and teachers along with a special space to journal.
