Annie Blake is an Australian poet and a member of the Australian Society of Authors and Hunter Writers Centre. Her favourite authors include, Charlotte Bronte, Emily Bronte, Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, Sylvia Plath and Kai Carlson-Wee.
Annie Blake noticed a strength in writing during the early years of secondary school when her English teacher pointed out that she felt she would succeed as an author if she continued to develop her skills in English and Literature.
Since it was difficult to generate an income from writing, it was left in the background until studies in Education at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and the Australian Catholic University were completed. At this time, her writing was more or less a collection of diary entries and thoughts and reflections.
It would not be until after working numerous jobs and
deciding to resign from the workforce that Annie Blake began writing seriously and submitting any work for publication. She undertakes personal studies in psychoanalysis, cosmology and philosophy to assist her writing. She now lives in Melbourne.
