About the Author

T. J. Blake is a self-published author in the UK.

Living in Surrey, T. J. Blake by day is a Copywriter for a Digital Marketing Company, and an author by night - or just in his spare time.

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 three novels which are all available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Waterstones Marketplace.

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 otherwise it will ruin 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."

Raw. Emotional. Edgy. Suspenseful. Powerful. Addictive. This is a read you won’t forget in a hurry! ‘Deception’ revolves around a man in the slums of depression after losing his wife. Her death affected him in ways he couldn’t foresee. He never imagined he would find love again. As luck would have it, he found another woman. After a long time of solitude, depression, and grief, he has found love again. She is all he can think about. In fact, Billy Allen, the protagonist, plans his dog walking out so he can intentionally bump into her. Thus, starting their relationship. However, as their relationship progresses it becomes clear she is no ordinary woman. After a strange, cryptic warning, Billy is riddled with doubts. How can this be? I love her. This man has to be lying. Surely? After initial hesitation, he reluctantly uncovers the woman’s true nature through an abundance of epic twists and turns. This novel begs the question: do you really know the person you’re in love with? I found this read to be riveting. I could not put it down! A psychological thriller that leaves you breathless. The writer pours heaps of emotion into every character. In fact, the characterizations are so real, you can easily imagine them being real people. Hopefully, the situation isn’t too common, though. If you are looking for an edgy, addictive read, this is it! A loss. A new love. An unsettling discovery. Does he really know the woman he loves? You have not experienced betrayal, suspense, or a truly compelling mystery until you’ve read ‘Deception’. ‘Deception’ will have you looking over your shoulders and wondering if there is anything your loved one is hiding from you…

Deception -- A Love of Lies is a psychological thriller that keeps readers guessing until the final pages. One of the main characters is a dark, depressed and brooding man who recently lost his wife. He falls in love with a vulnerable woman who seems to need his help, but she has her own faults and oddities which become more and more evident as their relationship progresses. When these two people who are desperate in their own ways join together, it only results in disaster. One thing that makes Deception such an interesting read is that the reader's perception of who the "bad guy" is keeps shifting throughout the story. T.J. Blake does an amazing job depicting the full range of emotions that these characters feel, especially obsession, rage, passion, contempt and confusion. The book is aptly named Deception because it is full of manipulation, unclear motives and people not being what they appear. Read and be enveloped into a world that is wonderful but warped, and be taken along a journey full of exciting twists and turns! I highly recommend it.

Amazing novel! Another great read from T.J. Blake. This is the forth novel from this up and coming writer. 'Deception: A love of Lies' has you gripped from the very first chapter and I really could not put this down. The character and scene depictions really paint a picture in your mind. A highly believable plot line, intriguing characters and twists & turns make this a real page turner. Well done on another great release. I look forward to the next release in the not too distant future.
