Terry McMillan Celebrates Her 61st Birthday (PHOTOS)

New York Times best-selling author Terry McMillan has been responsible for penning and inspiring two motion pictures, “Waiting To Exhale” and “How Stella Got Her Groove Back,” in her 25-plus year career as a writer.

In the midst of developing the sequel to “Exhale” and her forthcoming book titled, “Who Asked You?” today marks McMillan’s 61st birthday. In honor of the former University of Arizona at Tucson English professor’s special day we take a look at a few photos of her through the years in addition to raising the question as to who should fill Whitney Houston’s role as Savannah Jackson.
