Local Author, Yasmin Brown, has been making great strides in the book community. Brown is originally from McKeesport and now resides in Elizabeth. Her desire to help women break down barriers, caused by domestic violence, is what inspired her to write her first book. As a survivor of abuse, Brown could relate to what other women were enduring, having walked in their steps. Her first book, “The Silent Destruction,” was published in 2018 by Higher Ground Books & Media. Two years later she added five more books to her published work: Red Flags; Deliverance; I Just Want to be Normal; Diamonds in the Rough; The Ice Tea of Friendship (Children’s Book).
