Under her own name, Teresa Noelle Roberts has published some seventy-odd stories—some very odd indeed—two books of poetry, three novellas and one forthcoming erotic paranormal romance. But tonight she comes to you as half of Sophie Mouette. The multi-talented and multi-identitied Dayle A. Dermatis, who’s reading tonight as Andrea Dale, is the other half.
The two halves of Sophie met well over a decade 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 close friends and critique partners, and it was only natural that they should start writing together as well.
Sophie's first novel-length erotica, Cat Scratch Fever, was published by Black Lace Books, and a novella, “Hidden Treasure,” appeared in last winter’s Bedding Down: Winter Erotica, edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel. Short erotica under the Sophie name has appeared in several volumes of Best Women’s Erotica and Best Lesbian Erotica, Best Lesbian Love Stories 2009, Caught Looking: Erotic Tales of Voyeurs and Exhibitionists, Coming Together: Al Fresco, and other anthologies with titles designed to intrigue the adventurous and embarrass the prudish.
The Teresa half of Sophie Mouette is fond of belly dancing, yoga and beaches in stormy weather. She’s also an avid cook and gardener, so she probably took advantage of this late night to can some homegrown tomatoes. Probably naked except for a cute apron. Hey, good food is sexy!
Tonight, Teresa will read Sophie’s “On Display” from Where the Girls Are.
