Terri Mateer

6’1” blonde spitfire Terri Mateer vividly tells the story of becoming a professional women's basketball player.
Raised in a hippie household without a father figure, an African-American surrogate father introduces a shy, tall sixth grader to the joys of basketball. Even though she is a natural at the sport, she dreams of becoming an architect. Thus Terri begins an unbelievable journey that includes modeling, stripping, becoming a drag queen, group therapy and, eventually, playing pro basketball in France. It's an uplifting, honest, no-holds-barred personal account that illustrates that we all occasionally need a coach and a bit of kindness.
