"Rakia Clark is a hard worker and really did an awesome job editing and preparing me for the publication of my book. She worked endless hours to get the manuscript into shape and keep it on schedule. I couldn't have done it without her. Thanks Rakia!"

- Lisa Leslie, four-time Olympic gold medalist and author of Don't Let the Lipstick

Fool You


"In 2007-2008 Rakia Clark was the editor at Kensington Publishing Corporation when Lisa Leslie and I co-wrote Don't Let the Lipstick Fool You. It was my first book and we were on a very tight schedule to get it finished and into bookstores before the Beijing Olympics. Rakia had a strong grasp of our concept and content and she guided us through several twists, turns and bumps in the writing/publishing road. We were all proud of the finished product and thankful for the insights, talents and efforts of Rakia Clark. I would definitely work with her again and I highly recommend this classy professional!"
- Larry Burnett, writer of Don't Let the Lipstick Fool You​
