Hey there! Here you can read my biography, a little bit of trivia, and my works in progress.
E.F. Spencer writes fantasy novels for young adults. She's particularly fond of action-packed adventures with a dash of magic and a hint of drama--and usually with a brave young woman at the helm. She also writes a bit of steampunk, because who doesn't like airships? And hats? (Every steampunk has to have at least one amazing hat. It's the law.)
Her first book, Justice Unending, was published by Evernight Teen in 2016, and her short fiction has appeared in Triptych Tales, Triangulation, and Spellbound Magazine. When she isn't writing fiction, she's… still writing, because she writes, edits, and project manages web- and software-related projects for a living. She lives in New England with her husband and two very fluffy cats.
You can find her on Twitter at @EF_Spencer; check out her blog at fairieszombiesandqueries.wordpress.com; and find everything else at elizabeth-spencer.net.
Other Fun Stuff
- I can (kind of sort of) speak a bit of Japanese. I passed level 2 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT, or 日本語能力試験) in 2006. That was forever ago, so my Japanese is kind of terrible now. I still translate videogame-related stuff now and then.
- I have far too many hobbies. I play a lot of videogames. (I'm especially into JRPGs, 4X games, and MMORPGs.) I crochet, knit, and sew. I'm competent at crochet, embarrassing at sewing, and I don't even know why I listed knitting. I only knit when my love for soft clothing overrides my hatred of knitting.
- I am an avid baker and cook and am determined to make almost everything I can from scratch. Everything. If I find a dish I love, I am going to pillage the internet for recipes and modify them until I can make it at home. I make my own butter and cordials from scratch, I've made duplicate recipes of retired foods, and I'd love to do more.

If you'd like to check out more of my stuff (or say hi!), you can find me at one of these fine places:
- Fairies, Zombies, and Agent Queries is my blog. I update it with resources about writing and publishing. I also do book reviews. Now and then I veer wildly off topic and start talking about cakes, but... Is that so wrong? Who doesn't love cake?
- @EF_Spencer is my Twitter handle.
- And, finally, you can find me at @EFSpencer on Facebook. (But please don't, I rarely use it.)
Otherwise, feel free to just email me!
