Florida, United States
As soon Yvonne Mason learned how to write, she started composing stories . At the ripe old age of five years, Yvonne knew she wanted to be an author. It wasn’t until decades and many rejection letters later that Yvonne realized her dream. In 1974 Yvonne started her first novel Dream Catcher, Failure Was Not an Option based on her brother Stan. The book was completed and published in 2006. Since then Yvonne has been very prolific and successful publishing book after book.
Yvonne is best known for her book Silent Scream based on the true crimes committed by Florida serial killer, Gerard Schaefer. The book, of course, exposes the horror of the murders, but even more so, seeks to give a voice to the victims. As Yvonne puts it, “The victims no longer scream silently, they now have a voice and with that voice comes peace.” Yvonne’s work and research into Schaefer and his crimes is so extensive that the Discovery Channel interviewed her and used her research in their series, ID Channel
