Living in Surrey, T. J. Blake by day is a Content Writer for a leading Digital Marketing Company, and an author by night. Blake's latest release is his psychological thriller novel, 'Deception - A Love of Lies'. Now he's working on the final chapter to 'The Endurance Series' (2018).
Being a child who required 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 in, Blake showcased his writing ability in college and university. During his time at Kingston University between 2012 and 2015, Blake studied Creative Writing with English Language & Communications; this encouraged him to persevere with writing.
In 2013, Blake published his first novel, Endurance.
Here's T. J. Blake speaking about his writing process - "When I go over my plans and writing, I always critique as a harsh and predictive reader. I don't want a reader to guess what is going to happen before it happens; it ruins the fun."
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."
