Zoë Spencer thinks umlauts are very important. As a little girl she always spelled her name Z-O-E-dots. Nowadays she spells it Z-O-<Alt>137.
As a former young adult, she prefers to write on Young Adult themes. Sadly her stories about cliques of sharp-tongued mean girls and the fluffy pixies who live at the bottom of their gardens invariably take a nasty turn somewhere around Albuquerque and by the time she’s finished they’d make Caligula blush. And no young adult ever wants to read that kind of filth.
In the summer of 2011, Zoë won a competition called The Next Big Author which was sponsored by the publishers Bloomsbury, Random House, Orion, Little Brown and Hodder & Stoughton. Zoë didn’t notice until May 2012. True story.
Zoë has never been seen to smile but her dentist has confirmed she does have teeth.
