She’s back!

TINKER, the first book of the Elfhome Series, has been reissued as a trade paperback with a beautiful new cover and an newly-written introduction.

Inventor, girl genius Tinker lives in a near-future Pittsburgh which now exists mostly in the land of the elves. She runs her salvage business, pays her taxes, and tries to keep the local ambient level of magic down with gadgets of her own design. When a pack of wargs chase an Elven noble into her scrap yard, life as she knows it takes a serious detour. Tinker finds herself taking on the Elfin court, the NSA, the Elfin Interdimensional Agency, technology smugglers and a college-minded Xenobiologist as she tries to stay focused on what’s really important – her first date. Armed with an intelligence the size of a planet, steel toed boots, and a junk yard dog attitude, Tinker is ready to kick butt to get her first kiss.

2003 Sapphire Award Winner

“Oh, man, this book is so good. A light, clever, sexy SF-fantasy-romance that’s just a whole lot of fun to read. Right up there with the best of the “scientific magic” books, and a clear “A” rating…” — SF SiteHer latest book is The Black Wolves of Boston.

Also out in paperback is Project Elfhome.  This is an anthology of short stories set in the world of the Elfhome series continuing the story started in the award-winning fantasy-SF novel Tinker.

The first four Elfhome novels are available in Unabridged Audio Book format from Amazon or Audible.com

“Wit and intelligence inform this off-beat, tongue-in-cheek fantasy…. Furious action…good characterization, playful eroticism and well-developed folklore…lift this well above the fantasy average …. Buffy fans should find a lot to like in the book’s resourceful heroine.” –Publishers Weekly on series debut Tinker


“Spencer’s intertwining of current Earth technology and otherworldly elven magic is quite ingenious.” –Booklist
