Although M. S. Spencer has lived or traveled in five of the seven continents, the last thirty years were spent mostly in Washington, D.C. as a librarian, Congressional staff assistant, speechwriter, editor, birdwatcher, kayaker, policy wonk, non-profit director, and parent. After many years in academia, she worked for the U.S. Senate, the U.S. Department of the Interior, in both public and academic library systems,, and at the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria, Virginia. She holds a Bachelor’s degree 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.  All of this tends to insinuate itself into her works.

Ms. Spencer has published twelve romantic suspense or murder mystery novels. She has two fabulous grown children and an incredible granddaughter. She divides her time between the Gulf Coast of Florida and a tiny village in Maine.
             For the Love of a Spy: The Scrivener & the Handyman

In an era electric with possibility and peril Maris Graystone, political
writer, and Michael Kinder, CIA troubleshooter, meet under oddly
conventional circumstances. Despite the instantaneous sparks,
they both sense there is more to their relationship than physical

Their love affair intensifies against the backdrop of the dramatic
world events of 1991-a disintegrating USSR, Middle East peace
talks, and Vietnam’s reemergence on the world stage. Michael
appears and disappears at unpredictable moments, leaving Maris
limp and lovelorn. Looking for safe harbor for both her emotions
and her body, she welcomes the advances of a dashing French
diplomat, Émile de Canalon, who whisks her off to France.

Will she embrace the luxury and comfort of Émile and his chateau
or the romance of international intrigue with Michael?
