Writing Samples

TC Currie is a journalist, writer, data geek, poet, body positive activist and occasional lingerie model. After spending 25 years in software development working with data movement and accessibility, she wrote her first novel during National Novel Writing Month and fell in love with writing.  Several of her tech articles have appeared on the front page of SlashDot. Her essays have been published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Power of Gratitude, and won the silver medal at the Solas Travel Awards.

Her years as a data geek inform her reporting on cloud technology, DevOps, AI/ML and workplace culture for The New Stack, Programmable Web, TFIR.io and Sam Whitmore’s Media Survey.  She’s written content for Oracle, Cloudbees, NGNIX, Digital Ocean, and armory.io.

TC now splits her time between podcasting for The Makers Series on TheNewStack.io, writing journalist articles and content, personal essays, poetry, and finishing Take the Easy Path: Creating Lasting Change through Self Love. Her collection of Transformational Poetry, Cookie Dough and Other Hugs in Poem Form is being turned into an audio book.
