Although M. S. Spencer has lived in Chicago, Boston, New York, France, Morocco, Turkey, Egypt, and England, the last 30 years have been spent mostly in Washington, D.C. as a librarian, Congressional staff assistant, speechwriter, editor, birdwatcher, kayaker, policy wonk, non-profit director and "domestic engineer", aka parent. Once she escaped academia, she worked for the U.S. Senate, the U.S. Department of the Interior, in several library systems, both public and academic, and at the Torpedo Factory Art Center. She holds a BA from Vassar College, a Diploma in Arabic Studies from the American University in Cairo, and Masters in Anthropology and in Library Science from the University of Chicago. She divides her time between Maine and Florida. All of this tends to insinuate itself into her works.
Writing as M. S. Spencer, she has published eleven best-selling contemporary romantic suspense novels. Dear Philomena: Love Lust & Murder on Chincoteague Island and Triptych are currently available in ebook and print-on-demand. Coming soon: new editions of The Penhallow Train Incident and Mai Tais & Mayhem: Murder at Mote Marine.
