As a teenager, South London boy Terry Ronald had dreams of becoming a writer until music, his other passion in life, steered him in a slightly different direction. He began his recording career in 1990 when he was signed to MCA records with a top ten single around Europe, Calm the Rage, and an acclaimed album, Roma. As a songwriter, producer and vocal arranger he has since had success with some of the biggest names in pop, including Girls Aloud and Sophie Ellis-Bextor. Terry's varied experience with vocal production means that he is often called upon for television programmes and music events alike, which have included The Brits, Eurovision and, in 2007, The X Factor, where he joined the show as a guest judge alongside Dannii Minogue. During the summer of 2009, Terry finally set aside some time to start work on the book he'd always dreamed of writing. The result is his debut novel, Becoming Nancy. Terry still lives in South East London with his husband, Mark.
