Local People

By Charlotte Hopkins

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).

Yasmin Brown, of Elizabeth Borough, has written 5 books and is growing strong as an Author.

In March, she became a contributing author to the book, “Voices Of The 21st Century Resilient Women Who Rise And Make A Difference.” The book has since proclaimed the status of an International Best Seller. This has propelled Brown's career as an author.

Becoming a member of the McKeesport Area Toastmasters Club in September 2018 helped to prepare Brown for public speaking during book signings, promotional events, and for sitting down for interviews with the media. All of these strengthened her as an Author. Brown also explained, “Toastmasters has helped improve my communication, leadership, and presentation skills. When I started in Toastmasters, I just wanted to be an observer, but within two years at the McKeesport Area Toastmasters Club, I became President, with help from the wonderful people within the club.”

After publishing her inspirational books for women and children, Brown was encouraged to branch out once more with Yiry-Elements, a group founded by Brown that she explains is “an organization striving to build hope, faith, love, and support through creativity and innovation. Yiry-Elements is encouraging the spirit, one element at a time, through innovative vehicles, driving interaction, self-expression, and personal growth.”

Brown continues to make strides with her writing and is currently working on her 8th book with more to come after that. This Elizabeth Borough resident has only just begun to make her mark in the publishing community. Anyone interested in learning more about her books and Yiry-Elements can reach her on Facebook (Yiryelements), Instagram (yazlibra3), Twitter (Yiryelements), and via email at yiryelements@gmail.com. Her schedule is also open for book signings, readings, and speaking events.
