Blake Millard

Blake is the father of two young children and currently calls Yarraville, Melbourne home. He has a Bachelor of Business and has largely been involved in the aviation industry, with roles in Customer Service, Air Traffic Control, Ground Services and most recently IT Project Management.

Blake’s beautiful wife passed away last year from Melanoma, and he is now a full time stay-at-home Dad looking after his young family. The transition from boardroom to school lunches has not been without its hiccups, but his cooking skills are greatly improved.

While writing has not been at the forefront of Blake’s resume, it has been a cathartic pastime for him in dealing with the loss of his wife and the adjustments he and his children have had to make without their loving partner and mother.

Blake’s passions are travel, good food, great wine and a variety of exercise to balance it all out.

I Love You Now Until Forever is written from the heart, motivated by the loss Blake and his family experienced and what he found to be a lack of appropriate children’s literature to help them grieve. It is an adaptation of When I Left by Aly Walsh, whose children were in the same classes as Blake’s children at primary school. The idea was hatched in the schoolyard by Aly, keen for Blake to go away and write a book that was appropriate for the loss of someone special to cancer.

From borrowed beginnings the book took on a creative life of its own, and has been designed as a kind of scrapbook for anyone, be they here or sadly lost, to give to a child as a treasure trove of memories, personal photos and positive messages. Blake has designed the book using elements that his wife loved, like butterflies, frangipanis, antique gold frames, and of course diamonds. Additionally, the dandelion blowing in the wind has special significance, illustrating the experience of loss and re-birth. Blake has written a book that he and his wife would have loved to create for each of their children, to read and keep forever. He can do it now, and so can anyone else, immortalising treasured memories forever.

Blake’s wish is that anyone, and especially those people who are on a personal journey of their own, can use this book to provide comfort, joy and confidence to the children dearest to their hearts.
