BIOGRAPHY

Annie Blake is an Australian writer and a member of the Jung C. G. Jung Society of Melbourne and Existentialist Society in Melbourne, Australia. She holds a Bachelor of Teaching (Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology) and a Graduate Diploma in Education (Australian Catholic University).

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.
