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.

TC now splits her time between writing journalist articles, personal essays, reviews, poetry, and finishing her mystery novel Runaway Rembrandt. Her collection of Transformational Poetry, The Empty Promises of Plastic Wrap is being turned into a one-woman show.  She’s glad to be back in the Bay Area after a 6-month digital nomad trip of the US. This is a huge and amazing country, but there really is no place like home.
