- Born: Memphis, The United States.
- Description: Self-growth expert/bestselling author, Terrance Bell, was born in Memphis, Tennessee to a housewife and a day laborer. After his parents divorced, Terrance's mom, was diagnosed with schitzophrenia and later, breast cancer. This prompted social workers to frequent their home on a regular basis. Bell was later sent to his grandmothers where she raised him for the duration of his middle school and high school teen years. He was not at all a scholar but discovered he was a creative thinker very early in life. Through the perseverance of many trials and tribulations while growing up, Bell was inspired to write a book to encourage others. "Empowering You" (short title) is a best-seller and there are one-million in print in twenty-two countries. "I never had any expectations as to how well the book was going to do, I just wanted to share with anyone who would listen in hopes to inspire their journey in life," says Bell. While Terrance's first book is enjoying mega-success, we should add that retailer's are lining up for Terrance's sophomore book "Everything A Woman Needs To Know". The new title from Mr. Bell is due in all major bookstores soon.
