The event will be Sat, April 13, 2:30 – 5 p.m. at the Reardon Center, 520 Minnesota Ave., KCK. Doors open at 1 p.m. A limited number of copies of each author’s books will be given away to the first to arrive.

Warren is an author, playwright, songwriter, mother, and wife. Her debut novel, “What a Sista Should Do,” was released in June of 2005. Her second book, “Farther than I Meant to Go, Longer than I Meant to Stay,” was a national bestseller. The success enabled her to quit her job doing IT for a bank.

She is also the author of “The Bishop’s Daughter,” “In The Midst of It All,” “Don’t Tell a Soul” and “The Replacement Wife.” In 2006, Warren and her husband Brent founded Warren Productions and released gospel musicals of “What a Sista Should Do” and “The Replacement Wife.” They live in Maryland with their five children.

Swinson is the author of 42 books, with 2.4 million copies sold. She specializes in urban fiction, but her bestselling “Wifey” series is based on her own life.

She spent five years in federal prison for being the “wifey” of a drug kingpin charged with “knowing of and/or about a criminal enterprise.” By the time she was released, she was ready to tell some stories.

Swinson self-published her first book, which she wrote while incarcerated, then scored a publishing deal with her second book, “Wifey.” After the success of “Wifey,” Kiki penned the sequels “I’m Still Wifey” and “Life After Wifey,” as well as the “Cheaper to Keep Her” and “New York’s Finest” series.
