Moved to blend his gift for songwriting and as a lyricist who loves poetry and the written word, Richburg was inspired in 2009 to pursue a new but related career in literature.  Intimacy: Missing “Peace” in the Puzzle of True Love & Close Relationships marks Terrence’s first major literary debut as an author—in which he draws heavily upon his own personal and professional life experiences, the spiritual foundation and emotional inspiration of the Bible, and the inherent power of heart-felt lyrics of songs he has composed.  The result is a profound vision of the deep intimate nature of close human relationships.

Richburg invites readers to explore the true power of intimacy as experienced in contemporary life situations, and examine its depth and dynamic application within human relationships. He also presents an investigation of why God’s view of intimacy is so essential, both for today and for all eternity!

Terrence is already in the process of writing and planning sequels to this his first effort, as well as releasing collections of his poetry, novels, children’s books, and music-related literary offerings, as God inspires.
