About Dayle

Dayle A. Dermatis

Dayle A. Dermatis has been called “one of the best writers working today” by USA Today bestselling author Dean Wesley Smith. Under various pseudonyms (and sometimes with coauthors), she’s sold several novels and more than a hundred short stories in multiple genres, including romance, SFF, mystery, thriller, and YA. She is also a founding member of the Uncollected Anthology project.

A recent transplant to the wild greenscapes of the Pacific Northwest, in her spare time she follows Styx around the country and travels the world, all of which inspires her writing. She loves music, cats, Wales, old houses, magic, laughter, and defying expectations.

Andrea Dale

Called a “legendary erotica heavy-hitter” (by the über-legendary Violet Blue), Andrea Dale writes sizzling erotica with a generous dash of romance. Her work—which has been called “poignantly erotic,” “heartbreaking,” and “exceptional”—has appeared in 20 year’s best volumes as well as about 100 other anthologies from Soul’s Road Press, Harlequin Spice, and Cleis Press. She finds passion in rock music, clever words, piercing blue eyes, the wind in her hair, and the scent of the ocean.

Sophie Mouette

Author of the 4-star (Romantic Times) novel Cat Scratch Fever and many short stories, Sophie Mouette is the brainchild of two widely published authors of erotica, romance, and speculative fiction.

The two halves of Sophie—Dayle A. Dermatis (aka Andrea Dale) and Teresa Noelle Roberts—met more than two decades ago at a writers’ conference. Talking nonstop, they closed down the hotel bar and went somewhere else to keep on talking. Although they’ve always lived on opposite sides of the country (and for a few years, on opposite sides of the Atlantic), they’ve remained very close friends, and it was only natural that they should start writing together as well.

Dayle also writes for Custom Erotica Source under the name Kendra Wayne.

I had a blast being interviewed on The Geek Agenda! So much fun talking with other geeks about whether I can, in fact, call myself “a bad-ass geek.” (What do you think?)

Want to hear the sound of my voice? Check out my interview with the delightful Aaron Joy on Blog Talk Radio as we discuss music, the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and of course erotica and writing.
