Terrence Jenkins Inks Deal with It Books

Actor and E! News co-anchor Terrence Jenkins has landed a deal with HarperCollins’ It Books imprint for a nonfiction title called The Wealth of My Mother’s Wisdom.

According to E! News, Jenkins plans to shape this project into an “ode to all mothers out there.” The book will contain anecdotes, life lessons, childhood stories, and actual advice from his mother. Publication is set for September 2013.

In an interview, Jenkins talked about the inspiration for this project: “During the process of playing the mama’s boy in Think Like a Man, I took an in-depth look at my own mother and her extraordinary journey of raising me while still a teenager herself. I know that many of the successful moments in my life, personally and professionally, have been in part because of the lessons that she taught me, and I am proud to share her words of wisdom to inspire others.”
