I’m Terry Baker Mulligan and I was born in New York City. I’m an author, a former teacher, a mother and wife who moved to the Midwest the day after I got married.

I’m a fan of the travel writer and speaker Rick Steves. A New York Times article by Sam Scott (3/24/19) states that “Steves wants us to travel because it’s fun, yes, but also because he believes that travel is so important that it might actually save the world.”

I’m spotlighting my new book:

THESE BOYS ARE KILLING ME TRAVELS AND TRAVAILS WITH SONS WHO TAKE RISKS.

THESE BOYS is a travel memoir about my two son’s adventures while backpacking through 34 countries on 3 continents, separately and alone in 2001 and 2003. They emailed me as often as they could because I was so worried about them—often for very valid reasons. When I reread those emails in 2015, I felt they were worthy of a book.

I’m proud of the success of my first book, SUGAR HILL which I began writing in 1974. I worked on it off and on for over 30 years. It was published in 2012 and has won several awards.

I’m also on Instagram, Linkedin and Twitter at tbmulligan.
