The two talented writers’s purpose for creating Convict’s Candy was to expose what’s really going on behind the prison walls, in addition to educating readers everywhere, especially those in high-risk urban areas about HIV transmissions and how the crisis is leading among African-American females.Hickson, Publisher Ghettoheat
Ever wonder if the man in your life who s been incarcerated, turned to another with an alternative lifestyle for comfort? Meet Candy Sweets, a teenaged, pre-op transsexual who gets arrested and sent to federal prison, exactly one week before her scheduled sex-change operation. Still having male organs, Candy is housed with strong, masculine, handsome male inmates who haven t touched a woman in years. Candy soon finds herself being caught in several love affairs with men having families, girlfriends and wives at home waiting for them to be released. Yet, Candy doesn’t kiss and tell, she understands the code of silence: What happens in prison stays in prison… Convict’s Candy deals with sexual identity, prostitution and homosexuality within the prison system, the interactions and relationships between the inmates and officers, infidelity and most importantly, explains how the HIV/AIDS virus spreads rampantly within the prison. It also reveals how the dangerous and deadly disease is transmitted within society, when infected inmates are released to go home.
