The 5* psychological thriller that won't let you look at passing dog walkers the same.

"I don't often read an entire novel in one sitting, but this one kept me turning pages until 2 a.m"

Through the stark and leafless trees, I see her.

I remember the first day I saw her; an instant attraction. I think she's beautiful. She has such pensive blue eyes; they remind me of a blue sky right before the sun descends. Every time I see her I want to talk to her, I want to get to know her, and I want to be her friend.

She usually completes the lower woodland walk in six minutes and forty-two seconds; she misses the deeper woodlands and goes home, I believe.

I walk down the road at the same speed as her. She reaches the crossroads at the bottom of the road, looks both ways, and then jogs across into the garden of a house. I stop walking and concentrate on which house is hers.

I can't stare too long but I am intrigued already, I will come back.

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."
