Terry McMillan, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Waiting to Exhale and other novels, returns this fall with her sequel, GETTING TO HAPPY.

McMillan's newest novel, her seventh, revisits four African American women struggling to find love and their place in the world–Savannah, Gloria, Bernadine and Robin–fifteen years after we left them in Waiting to Exhale.

Terry McMillan fell in love with books as a teenager working at the local library. She studied journalism at UC Berkley and screenwriting at Columbia before making her fiction debut with Mama, which won the American Book Award among other honors.

In this intimate conversaion with Terry, we learn about how she broke into publishing, the rejections she has had to endure, and how she finds the strength and motivation to write–even in the most difficult times. She recently endured a divorce from a man she discovered is gay.

Getting to Happy has already been optioned for the big screen by the same team that produced Waiting to Exhale, the 1995 smash hit.
