She's the star sales associate of a profitable Atlanta "advertising" firm, WMM. She lives for top-of-the-line everything . . . and making enough money to finally reunite with her children. But Nina Coles is an ex-hood-rat in hiding. And no amount of paper can keep her safe from a ruthless FBI agent who's determined to take down the shady company she works for. Now Nina's vicious, greedy boss Rinaldo is defying the feds and endangering everyone to rack up several last scores.

And sexy undercover cop Rick is proving to be one danger Nina can't figure out-or get enough of.

Wahida currently operates her own publishing company out of East Orange, New Jersey, Wahida Clark Presents Publishing.
  • "Victor L. Martin, LaShonda Teague, Bonta, and Shawn "Jihad" Trump are writers to watch, but Clark pulls out all stops in 'Makin' Endz Meet,' introducing Nina, a sassy street girl who tells us, 'Now here I be. Twenty-on years old, three kids, three babies' daddies, and on welfare.' You go, girl.'"
    (Library Journal on WHAT'S REALLY HOOD?).

  • "Brutally honest." (Publishers Weekly on THUG LOVIN').

  • "Exciting . . . realistic characters . . . Clark provides another descriptive drama that once again pulls no punches or kicks with an in-your-face-and-groin realism. (Midwest Book Review  on THUG LOVIN').
