Best-selling author Terry McMillan graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in journalism, relocated to New York and worked on fiction outside of her job. Expanding on a short story, she produced her award-winning breakout novel, Mama. A string of critically acclaimed works followed including Disappearing Acts and How Stella Got Her Groove Back. Her blockbuster Waiting to Exhale spent more than 38 weeks on the New York Times best-seller list and the subsequent film sold out theatres. Her most recent novel, Getting to Happy, sequel to Waiting to Exhale, was released in 2010. She edited the seminal anthology of new black fiction, Breaking Ice, and received the 2008 Essence Magazine Lifetime Achievement Award.
