Spencer likes to talk, as his friends and family know only too well. He talks to students about journalism, writers and budding writers about writing (and how to make a living out of it), plus clubs and societies about his books.

With the exception of school and college engagements, all details about when and where Spencer is due to appear will be posted in advance on Twitter. In other words follow @SpencerVignes to find out more.

If you'd like Spencer to come and talk to your pupils, students, members, whatever, then drop him a line.
