Author/Business Owner

Tara Brouwer co-authored and illustrated the book "Everything I Know About Dating I Learned Through Surfing." She with her co-author, Nancy Spooner Bsharah, discovered this crazy paralel between surfing and dating through tips they heard in the water—thus, the book was born. Tara started surfing almost five years ago upon arrival to San Diego from Colorado. Having grown up near Lake Michigan until the age of 21, she has made it a goal to someday ride a wave in that great lake (yes, rideable waves there do exist). Tara also owns a graphic design and web development agency called Shovel Creative. You can learn more about her book at and more about her graphic design and web development agency at
