Born in Suffolk in 1966, Spencer Smart headed for a life in west Cornwall many years ago where he lives with his family. He has worked as a technical author and marketing consultant since the late 1980s.
Spencer’s first thriller No Regrets introduced Dutch detective Pieter van Es, who fled Amsterdam for a not-so-peaceful new life in Penzance. A Statement of Intent, the second book in the series, will be available early 2017.
Spencer has also republished the Penhale trilogy by Crosbie Garstin – a fantastic series of adventure books set largely in west Cornwall and out of print for many years. His fictional ‘what-if?’ biography of Garstin is a work-in-progress.
