Terry McMillan
seeks new groove following divorce

Terry McMillan says she's trying to get her groove back. "I'm not going to end up on the rocking chair by myself," said McMillan, who filed for divorce from Jonathan Plummer in January. McMillan, who discusses her marriage and the breakup in the current issue of The Advocate, has said that she decided to end her 6 1/2 years of marriage to Plummer, 31, after learning that he is gay. The revelation led her to conclude that Plummer, whom she met at a Jamaican resort a decade ago, married her only to get U.S. citizenship, McMillan has said.

Plummer inspired her to write How Stella Got Her Groove Back, the 1996 novel that chronicled the romantic adventures of a 40-something woman who falls for a guy half her age. Angela Bassett and Taye Diggs starred in the 1998 film based on the book. McMillan, 54, said that during a recent trip to New York City she dressed up and "felt beautiful and sexy."

"I just got back from Los Angeles where a group of women had a belated party for me," she said. "Guess what? Life does go on. My life is already continuing." McMillan is scheduled to speak Friday at the Miami Book Fair International. (AP)
