About the Author
Living in Surrey, T. J. Blake by day is a Copywriter for a Digital Marketing Company and an author by night. Blake has recently released his newest psychological thriller novel, 'Deception - A Love of Lies', and is now working on the final chapter of 'The Endurance Series', coming 2017.
Being a child that needed speech therapy and extra support with writing and spelling, Blake was never considered to be a child who would enjoy the craft of writing. His passion for writing lopsided slightly as school life took over. But once he completed his GCSE's, Blake then showcased his writing in College. The A-Level subjects English Language and Film Studies encouraged him to write more and to continue a journey into further education. After college, he went to Kingston University to study Creative Writing with English Language & Communications in 2012.
After three years of intense studying and writing, Blake was very proud to receive his Bachelor of Arts with Honours Degree in Creative Writing with English Language & Communications in 2015. His studies helped him to fully grasp the concept of writing, plot and entertainment in terms of writing, whilst English Language and Communications allowed him to learn about language and how people communicate in both reality and in the fictional world.
The prospect of writing to entertain people across the world at first was terrifying to Blake, but now it is something he thrives on. Since becoming a self-published author in 2013 with CreateSpace, Blake has written and self-published four novels and a short story.
Blake on writing - "Writing is a powerful tool, especially Creative Writing. It gives you the freedom to create a whole new world inside yours and your reader's mind."
