Wahida Clark

She is crowned the Queen of Thug Love Fiction by Nikki Turner, the Queen of Hip Hop Fiction. She created the Thug Love Fiction genre which is a sub-genre of street lit as cited in "The Readers Guide to Street Literature" by Vanessa Irvin Morris. She also is the first street lit author to pen a series, thus establishing the trend. 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 New York Times.

One of the few urban lit books to do so.
