Jonathan Plummer Tells How he Gave Stella her Groove Back


In a tell all novel that mirrors his life with Terry McMillan
ba_happy.jpgFollowing in the footsteps of his talented ex-wife, Jonathan Plummer has written a novel that closely resembles the events in his life. Once married to esteemed “Waiting To Exhale” author, Terry McMillan, Plummer was the inspiration for his wife's best selling 1996 novel, "How Stella Got Her Groove Back."

Plummer's first published literary works will carry the title, "Balancing Act: A Novel," and it will be released by Simon & Schuster on September 4, 2007. Based on the story of a Jamaican man who made a major switch in career and life paths after meeting and marrying a powerhouse of a woman, Plummer's fictitious tale focuses on this ordinary life that gets disrupted after entering what mirrors Terry McMillan’s world.

Described by Contra Costa Times as, "a sexy and satisfying novel as deliciously racy as the life he lived," the story speaks to the writer's experiences.

Plummer and McMillan made headlines after their messy divorce in 2006. The New York Times #1 Best Selling Author filed for divorce after her husband disclosed his homosexuality.

"Balancing Act" tells the story of a model agency owner who signs a handsome Jamaican man as a model. Like Terry, she is duped as he discovers a hidden hunger for a male model.”
