About T.C.

The blurb:   T.C. Dale is a native Oklahoman with an adventurous streak. After attending university on both coasts, she moved overseas to Belgium where she earned her Masters in English, and spent six months in Germany working for an international game development company. Back in the U.S., she obtained her MBA in Information Systems Management. She makes her living fixing people’s problems and making computers play nice. In her spare time, she works out, runs, plays RPGs, and likes to cook.

Writing & Publications

In addition to erotica and fiction, I study religious philosophy.  I have been referenced in The Paradox of God and the Science of Omniscience by Clifford A. Pickover, Wicca 333: Advanced Topics in Wiccan Belief by Kaatryn MacMorgan, and Satanism Today: An Encyclopedia of Religion, Folklore, and Popular Culture by James R. Lewis.

Are You Really…?

A lot of what I include about myself and my life on social media is accurate, but not all of it is. Many erotica authors use personas and pen names under which they write, and I’m no exception. I do this to ensure that my very non-erotic day job doesn’t mix with my less-than-family-friendly hobbies. You are welcome either believe what I tell you, or to consider me a fascinating but unreliable narrator: whichever sparks your interest the more.

Have You Really…?

This question seems to be uniquely asked of erotica authors. Do people ever ask horror authors if they really encountered monsters?

Some of the things I write about are immoral and/or illegal, and regardless of whether or not I had experience with them, I would be foolish to publicly admit that I did. Some other things I write about (like BDSM play, threesomes, etc.) aren’t morally questionable, but may be socially frowned upon. Regardless, generally speaking, I don’t market myself based on what I have and haven’t done in real life: I market myself on how real I can make you believe it is. If you are convinced that I write it well enough that I must be speaking from experience (or badly enough that I must not be!), then I’ve done my job as an author.

How Do You Pronounce ‘Taig’?

Taig is properly pronounced like the ‘tig’ in ‘tiger’. However, I pronounce it ‘tayg’ (rhymes with ‘vague’).  It’s an Irish name, sometimes also spelled Tadhg, Taigh, or Tighe.
