EARLE SPENCER currently lives in the northeastern United States but has traveled extensively and lived many places. Although trained as a chef, he also holds degrees in Political Science and Law. Besides cooking, he has also worked as a deckhand on commercial fishing vessels, as a college instructor, and many other things as necessary. His favorite hobbies are reading, fishing, cooking, museums, and travel to anywhere with salt water, beaches, and palm trees. A Song for Charlie Redbird is his first (and hopefully not his last!) novel length work.
