Malik-Hakim Kadir was born in 1963 and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. He is the middle of seven children. He graduated high school in 1981 at the age of seventeen and by that time he had already been on his own for two years. He plunged headfirst into addiction in 1986 when he was introduced to crack cocaine while sitting in a motel room and he spent the next two decades of his life spiraling out of control; one detox, rehab, homeless shelter and jail cell after another. Today Malik is a child of God; a father to his son; a son to his mother and a brother to his siblings. He is also a licensed social worker and a productive member of society who believes God has blessed him in order that he may be a blessing to others. His prayer is that the message of hope within the pages of this book will ignite a spark in someone who may be suffering from the disease of addiction. Malik lives in Houston, Texas where he finally surrendered to the will of God. He brings both passion and compassion to his work and h e describes himself as a frontline soldier in the war against drugs and an advocate for those who don't know they have a choice.
