About Tony Spencer

Have published 26 books since 1998, one out of print, 22 available on Smashwords and 5 on Amazon. I started writing fiction in 2013. I brought out a glut of little books as soon as I realised self publishing was an option, but now I am settling down to produce one novel and a collection of other stories each year.

A grandfather of three angels, happily married for 39 years to another, living in Hampshire, England, about 35 miles west of London. I had worked for over 40 years as a printer and proofreader but retired in 2015 and hoping to spend more time writing. Also an editor of a community magazine, football programmes and have written weekly sports reports now for almost 20 years in local newspapers. Now concentrating on romantic fiction, mostly short stories, with occasional novellas and novels.

Review by: Tabitha Ormiston-Smith on March 18, 2015 :
In the Dickensian tradition of the Christmas story, Lane One Closure approaches Santa from a very different point of view, as we have come to expect from Mr Spencer. It's difficult to be really original with a Christmas story, but Spencer has done it. I did feel the story could have used a little more polish, but it's a fun, upbeat read.

I've not read any books by Tony before. I've had this book a while but wanted to wait til nearer Christmas to read this one.
What a lovely surprise it was. Although it was short it had a lovely storyline to it. It's definetly a fun read that had me chuckling to myself:)

Review by: sue ward on Nov. 17, 2013 :
This is a short story written by Tony Spencer. He never promotes his books as he write for a hobby and nothing else, but, I had to say I thought this story fun. Its a very short entertaining book. I read it whilst having my tea and toast this morning. I was in the group Philomena and I manage along with authors and asked about anyone having any Christmas based books they would like us to read for December as although we have heaps to read, it would be nice to read and review some during this time period.
Tony left a link and said [very humbly] that he has this one that is short, I might like but not sue of.

These were his words:
This was my 3rd self-published short (2180 words) story written last Christmas for my NCC highways chums.

Although I am in the middle of reading a previous book, out of curiosity I opened it, and before before I knew it, I had read read. It made me chuckle. Loved his style.

So if you are looking for a quick read whilst sitting and have a 10 minute cuppa, have a read.
