Community members who enjoy breakfast and lunch at the South of the Border Café in downtown Grand Marais may know Terri Muhich as the friendly woman from Hovland who refills their coffee cup. However, most do not know about her “alter ego.” Terri is a prolific author, writing under the name of Tara Mills. 

Tara Mills has published nine novels, several novellas and a series of books called Pelican Cay. The artwork for some of her books leads a potential reader to think the books are Harlequin-style romantic tales, but Terri promises there is more to her books than that.

She explains that love is important, but developing characters is even more critical to her stories. To do so, she takes her time, working on one novel a winter at her Hovland home.

She also networks with other authors, online and this summer, at a writer’s conference at the Mall of America in August. She joined over 50 other authors at the “Royal Readers” event, where she met other writers as well as fans of her work.

Her books can be found on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other locations and also online at Kindle, Nook and Google Play.

Information about Terri/Tara and information on purchasing books can also be found on her website.
