Have published 22 books since 1998, one out of print, 20 available on Smashwords and 1 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.
I have a fourth novel half-finished in the pipeline, due to publish in 2015. I hope to have another volume of short stories ready for this Spring.
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 currently occupied on road maintenance, and writing in my spare time. I am retiring in July and hoping to spend more time writing. Also an editor of 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.

Those readers familiar with Mr Spencer's work will know that what you expect is hardly ever what you will get. In this novella, another Christmas story is promised, and of course delivered, but you'll be amazed at what else you get.
Lest I spoil a reader's surprise enjoyment, I shan't say more about the plot other than that in true Spencer style it juxtaposes elements that no one has ever put together before.
The writing is a little rough and the book could do with a good polish, but the plot is so wildly original and the situation so very entertaining that one forgives this. Nevertheless, the manuscript could, I felt, have done with a bit more work. In particular, there are far too many long explanations, which should have been integrated into the narrative.
