Terrance Hunter, who experienced a spiritual awakening while serving a murder sentence at San Quentin State Prison, recently released his inspiring memoir, “My 30 Years with the California Department of Corrections: Thirty Years of Incarceration… Led to His Miraculous Transformation!” Terrance was inspired to write his memoir to show others that they are the architects of their own future. He believes that recognizing the interconnection between all human beings and being grateful for every day are key tenets to achieving lasting change after incarceration.
My 30 Years with the California Department of Corrections chronicles Terrance Hunter’s life, beginning with his upbringing as a fatherless child in a Baptist home. At the age of 15, Terrance abandoned the church. At the age of 25, he took the life of a close friend, resulting in his conviction for second-degree murder. While incarcerated, Terrance rediscovered his faith and, though still physically confined, became free in spirit.
A volunteer, Bruce Hodgin, and his family befriended and adopted Terrance, showering him with love and care for over 20 years. Experiencing the unconditional love of a Caucasian family willing to adopt an African American man serving a murder sentence proved to Terrance that all is possible through the mercy of God. In My 30 Years with the California Department of Corrections, Terrance credits Bruce and his family with helping to transform his life.
Readers from all backgrounds will identify with Terrance’s honest, unassuming tone as he recounts his journey from the darkness of his mistakes into the light of new life through God. Reviewers describe Terrance’s work as “a powerful story of redemption” and “written from the heart.” Fans credit Terrance for speaking out against violence and helping others realize the best possible versions of themselves.
Terrance Hunter is gainfully employed in the F&B equipment industry and uses his spare time to be an author, speaker, and advocate for non-violence. After his release from prison, Terrance joined True Talking Toastmasters, a non-profit educational organization dedicated to leadership and public speaking, and eventually became the club’s President. He regularly gives back to the community by supporting youth programs and parolees. Most recently, Terrance created his own non-profit, Empowering the Fatherless, Inc., to empower the fatherless and put them on the path to a well-rounded, fulfilling life.
