Additionally, Tara Kai is a writer. She is a contributor of articles and stories to periodicals, including Gablers and A World Between. Her debut novel, Dar es Salaam, is set in the African city of that name and presents the coming-of-age tale of a precocious fourteen-year-old girl. Tatum, the novel's central character, journeys from England to Tanzania with her mother, stepfather, and two siblings. During her extended stay in Tanzania, Tatum falls in love with and finally seduces, a forty-year-old African man named Mohammed. The novel explores not only the uncertain ground of teenage passion but also the dynamic of a blended family far removed from their traditional surroundings.

Quotations: "It's so personal and yet so revealing to have a book on the bookshelf. It's hours of sitting at home alone, creating sentences, and then having it in a bookstore where anyone can read it."
Quotes from others about the person
Phaedra Trethan: "Kai knows how a fourteen-year-old girl feels. She knows the self-loathing, the social awkwardness, the love-hate relationship with one's parents. She also knows Africa: the beauty, poverty, and the people."
