About the Author
More About the Author
After being released in December 1996, she did a little research and learned about the success of authors such as Bebe Moore Campbell, Terry McMillan and Sheneska Jackson. She said, "DangÂ these women got it going on. And if they did it, so can I!"
Ms. Swinson, later went on to self-publish "Mad Shambles." Her passion for writing didn't stop there. Writing feverishly into the wee hours of the night, she completed her second novel, Wifey, which was picked up and published by Melodrama Publishing. After the success of Wifey, there was an overwhelming demand for her to write a sequel. Her fans wanted more so Ms. Swinson decided to answer all unanswered questions. The result is a creative, gritty work of fiction entitled, "I'm Still Wifey."

She knows Ricky is a no good cheating dog, but yet she "puts up" with his ways because of what he does for her financially. He has done everything imaginable to break her heart (have kids outside of the marriage, cheat with other women, disrespect from his baby mothers, and cheating with her co worker). What else can she take?
She becomes numb to Ricky's awful ways once her cousin (who is like a sister to her) gets caught up in the system due to carrying some of Ricky's weight. She see's that Ricky doesnt love her and he is just out for "self". She does the worst thing a "wifey" can do. She breaks the code of conduct and snitches on her man in order to free her cousin of misery.
She also breaks another code and gets too close to one of Ricky's hustling connects. Will she make it out the game of being wifey before Ricky finds out she is the cause of his downfall?
The suspence and drama of this book kept me glued. I kinda felt sorry for Kira @ the end, but I knew Russ was going to play her. She played herself big time.
I cant wait to read the sequel to this.
I'll say it loud - I DID NOT LIKE THIS BOOK!! I gave the author 1 star for two reasons: 1. That's as low as you can go. 2. The cover and synopsis on the back made you think this book was going to be fire. Psyche!! This was one of the most unbelievable books I've ever read. The title character Kira is married to Ricky the dope man. Ricky who is so smart that he discusses ALL of his business inside his house. Ricky who KNOWS that Kira is stealing from him but does nothing about it. What kind of top dog is this?
Don't let me even get started on Kira. Kira who lets her husband make babies all over the Tidewater area but thinks because she has a few fur coats and a wedding ring that she's running things. Kira who falls hard for her husband's associate that she claimed was so ugly but let end up treating her like the trick she is.
To top it off every other word was dat and den'. I know the author wanted you to get the slang but having those two words appear in every other sentence was ridiculous. Ms. Swinson also felt that she had to give ghetto translations (i.e. food means drugs). Stop doing that, it's stupid. I'm done. This book sucked!!
