Andrew Spencer on his writing,
”A lot of my work is influenced by sociological and psychological theories. My characters and themes follow alternative and somewhat controversial means. This affords me the luxury of exploring with deep insight, the havoc and desires hidden within the layers of emotion and dialogue of each character as they navigate themes such as addiction, depression and love. The beauty of writing in this form is that the subject matter can uniquely coexist with both the realms of true existence and, a dystopian or Orwellian visions of our collective future.” - Andrew Spencer, 2014
