About the Author

Kareem Hicks is a native of Newark, New Jersey. He lived a life of crime and mayhem for almost 20 years until the birth of his first child in 2000. Kareem realized he had to make the best decision for his family, so with his girlfriend and new born baby they relocated to North Carolina. Kareem moved to what was a small city at the time Charlotte, NC "The Queen City". He continued in his reign over the streets of Charlotte being arrested over 10 times and incarcerated for more than 5 years in the North Carolina department of corrections. His charges ranged anywhere from possession of a weapon by convicted felon, money laundering, trafficking and attempted murder.

While incarcerated in 2009 Kareem thought to himself that maybe he should start writing about the streets instead of living them. He honestly felt he had caused too much pain and conflict and not enough love and respect. So at that moment November 10, 2009, Kareem picked up a pen bringing you his first novel of a trilogy titled "The City".

Kareem immediately worked hard to pursue his dreams of becoming a bestselling author among other urban novelist. After repeatedly contacting publishing companies time after time without any call backs, Kareem began to get frustrated. Many times he thought of returning to the streets yet he was never discouraged by his failed attempts. With the support of his family, Kareem has turned his motivation and dedication into a must read by the streets. And here lies Kareem's latest and first project "The City".
