A Bold, New Author Shares Her Courageous Story of Triumph in
the Face of Darkness
New York City – The message is a simple one: Girl to girl, you
can be infected, indeed. HIV/AIDS education will never be the
same thanks to Conscious, the mono-monikered author of the
deeply personal and inspirational new autobiography, GETTING
UNSTUCK: Girl to Girl You Can Be Infected… Indeed (SWN
Publishing, ISBN# 0971695105).
life journey is punctuated by wealth, drug abuse, sexual abuse
and finally, HIV. Yet she manages to deliver a powerful story
full of hope and triumph, a true inspiration and education in
the consequences of a dark past. Told through a series of
conversations between Conscious and her therapist at a drug
rehabilitation facility, GETTING UNSTUCK finds Conscious
recovering from a desperate battle with drugs, street life, and
sexual identity crisis. Through her physical and emotional
recovery and repressed memory, Conscious uncovers alarming
events from her childhood that unlock the mystery of her
troubled adolescence and adulthood.
From the tender core of GETTING UNSTUCK emerges the steady and
confident voice of a survivor. Conscious is in full control of
her story despite a past of being subjugated and powerless.
Conscious is a true Jill of all trades, having left her mark as
the former Music Director of the Queen Latifah Show, the host of
the Oxygen Network talk show She-Commerce, a bodyguard for
celebrities including Mark Wahlberg, Jay-Z and Missy Elliot, an
electrical engineering blue print designer for Con Edison, a
United States Navy Electronic Technician, and a Division I
college basketball standout.
Conscious’ charisma has put her in high demand to speak to
audiences throughout the country about HIV/AIDS awareness,
namely female to female transmission; protecting children from
sexual predators; and drug rehabilitation.
Check out some reviews for GETTING UNSTUCK, which is now
available at Barnes & Noble and B. Dalton bookstores, and
internationally in Australia, Germany and Amsterdam.

Wendy Williams, WBLS, 107.5 FM: “The Wendy Williams
Experience”: Conscious is a good talker and the topics that
Conscious addresses in this book transcend all color barriers
and sexual preferences. Certain celebrities, which I won’t
mention need to read this book also.

Conscious is a brave young lady that is not afraid to talk about
her experiences. She is much needed in our community. “Getting
Unstuck” has given our community an eye opener. We all must read

story. The first ever to openly address the process of
female-to-female HIV infection. Conscious addresses subjects
that are the key to recovering from all kinds of abuse. She was
an excellent guest on my show.
Ann Tripp, WLIB 1190 AM: “Getting Unstuck” addresses our
deepest secrets and our insecurities. This project will help our
youth. This is not a book for gay women but for all women and
men that have endured any type of abuse. Conscious writes as if
she is seeing through our souls.

increasingly becoming an epidemic in our community. Conscious’
new book, “Getting Unstuck” sheds light on female to female HIV
transmission and helps us to understand that females in the
lesbian community are not exempt from this disease and they too
need to be educated on prevention. Excellent book! I couldn’t
put it down.
