Kiki Swinson

Author of the extremely popular and successful Wifey series, Kiki Swinson, is a living testament to the resilience of the human spirit. The Portsmouth, Virginia, writer discovered her passion for penning real-life experiences in novel form when she completed her first book, Mad Shambles, while serving five-years in federal prison for allegedly being the “wifey” of a very successful drug dealer. After being released, Swinson self-published Mad Shambles before pitching Wifey to publishing houses. Eventually, the book was picked up by Melodrama Publishing and after fans demanded a sequel, Swinson delivered with I’m Still Wifey, Life After Wifey, and Still Wifey Material along with other popular novels. Fifteen years after being released from prison, Kiki Swinson’s life as a narcotics kingpen’s wifey has generated a hefty profit.
