Wahida Clark was born and raised in Trenton, New Jersey. She is no stranger to the hard work and sacrifices that breed success. This Trenton native once owned and operated L.M. Clark Printers & Publishers Inc., a printing and publishing company located in Trenton. She decided to write fiction while incarcerated at a women's federal prison camp in Lexington, Kentucky.
She is crowned the Queen of Thug Love Fiction by Nikki Turner, the Queen of Hip Hop Fiction. Wahida's style of writing is the "TEMPLATE" for urban literature. When you read her novels, they are so real you are convinced of one of three things: you know the characters; you want to know the characters; or you are one of the characters. Her Essence and Black Issues Book Reviews bestselling novels include Thugs and The Women Who Love Them, Every Thug Needs A Lady, Payback Is A Mutha, Payback With Ya Life, and her latest anthology with Kiki Swinson titled Sleeping With The Enemy.
After serving a nine year prison sentence, Wahida was released on June 13, 2007, from the federal prison camp in Alderson, West Virginia.
She has just completed Part 4 of her Thug Series, the highly anticipated Thug Lovin'. She is vice president of the nonprofit organization based out of East Orange, New Jersey, Prodigal Sons and Daughters Redirection Services, a re-entry program for convicts and ex-convicts. The organization also provides support groups and mentors for at-risk youth.
Today, Wahida runs her printing & publishing company out of East Orange, New Jersey, Wahida Clark Presents Publishing, LLC. Her first releases include: Trust No Man by Cash, Thirsty by Mike Sanders, and Cheetah by Missy Jackson.
