Hi, I’m Blake and as you may have guessed by now, I’m a writer.

Yup, that’s right, I write books and I wrote my first novel in 2011 when I was twenty-eight. But I was writing long before that. I started writing when I was just seven years old.

I don’t remember why I started writing, but I do remember what inspired me to do it. It was Yuri, writing his poems to Lara in the frozen house in the film Dr Zhivago, and the beautiful music played, Lara’s Theme; it was the sound of the typewriter at the very start of the film Misery, where Paul Sheldon finishes his latest book.

My most sacred inspiration has to be my magical soulmate, Emi. Her imagination, talent and creativity is all the nitrous oxide fuel I need to conjure up other worlds and to write about them.

I spend my time working a day job, like most writers, but on evenings, weekends and the occasional holidays, I write, dream and create with Emi, who is an amazing artist in her own right. We spend a great deal of time taking walks along the coast, looking for magical portals and searching for shark’s teeth, hoping always to find the secrets of the sea.
