About the author (2010)

Author Jasmine Sharif born in Guban, Yemen in 1974 has republished her first book that tells the story of her life as she escaped the tyranny and violence she experienced from a very young age. She was the 3rd of 8 children in a family that bought and sold her as a chattel. Married at 15, sold for 30,000 dollars (in America!) and some gold; she embarked on a journey through 4 arranged marriages, 3 children and flight from her oppressors. Sharif's book has been mistaken as something that speaks against Islam, yet she weaves a story that embraces the words of the Quran and tells the reader that she has found her path and her truth in the very religion that was used to imprison and sell her as a piece of property. Her memoir Caged in America was born and finally composed from her experiences while living in Dearborn, Michigan in a tightly knit Muslim community. Ms. Sharif has secured a safe place which finally allows her to flourish as a writer and poet. She is an avid speaker locally in defense of the strength of women's survival from domestic violence. She has remained on the top 100 sales list with Amazon and Barnes and Noble for 2009. Ms. Sharif strives to assist other women who have had similar experiences regardless of religion or color. Her book signers and future book sales are directed to return the favor of freedom.
