Yasmin Shiraz writes adult and young adult fiction and is the author of 8 books including the Amazon #1 best seller Exclusive, the American Library Association Top Ten Quick Pick, Retaliation and the critically acclaimed Blueprint for My Girls series.
She is also an award winning screenwriter/director of the documentary film, Can She Be Saved and two webseries Every Corner and Sources.
On this site, I share information on my books, films, and webseries projects, but also I blog about writing, entrepreneurship, healthy living, and culturally relevant news.
Most recently Shiraz added to her media offerings and began producing the weekly podcast, Live Better with Yasmin Shiraz. Live Better explores life, career, entrepreneurship, and health choices. It gives Yasmin the opportunity to share a lot of what she'd learned with the listeners. The show is currently distributed on iTunes and Stitcher Radio.
As a keynote speaker and program developer, Shiraz's clients include The US Postal Service, The Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Girls Inc., Harlem Children's Zone, NAACP, and more than 60 colleges and universities throughout the US.
I've worked with A list celebrities, record labels, hip hop artists, government agencies, juvenile detention facilities, Ivy League universities, state colleges, libraries as well as non-profit organizations, middle schools and high schools. I'm thankful that my work has universal appeal.
