 Bio

  

​​Kiki Swinson is the national bestselling author of over 30 novels and short stories. A star of the street lit genre—crime novels in an urban setting—Swinson’s works feature resilient women making tough, and sometimes not quite legal, decisions to survive.

Her novels, inspired by her experiences and a five-year stint in federal prison, have sold over 1 million copies. She completed her first novel, Mad Shambles, while incarcerated and her second novel, Wifey, became the first book in one of today’s best-selling street lit series. A native of Portsmouth, Virginia, and a former hustler’s wife, Swinson resides in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
