Biography

Pseudonymous author Spencer Quinn zoomed to bestsellerdom with his wry, entertaining Chet and Bernie series, featuring one of the most delightful sleuthing duos in mystery history—an intrepid K-9 police academy dropout and his hapless private detective owner. An Agatha Award-winning writer (under his given name, Peter Abrahams), Quinn lives on Cape Cod.

Good To Know

Some fascinating outtakes from our interview with Spencer Quinn:
"My mother, also a writer, taught me just about everything I know about writing when I was nine or ten years old. For example: Try not to use connecting words like however, nevertheless, to be sure. Sentences should connect through the force of the ideas connecting, and if you find yourself using a lot of connecting words, then maybe your ideas are wrong. Also, really important: push every situation as far as you can. Without crossng the credibilty line, of course. That's a continuing challenge."

"The best thing I've done in my life is raise four happy kids."

"My first job was as a spearfisherman in the Bahamas. This is done free-diving (no scuba). We would often work depths in excess of 70 feet. Sometimes we disputed the catch with sharks. I much prefer dogs to sharks."

"My favorite way to unwind is playing tennis. I love the game even though I consider myself a hacker. My forehand was always decent but it took years for my backhand to get where it is now—still nothing to write home about. So humbling to be such a slow learner at something, and so good for me. I love the competition, too, and the camaraderie. A lot of the guys have no clear idea about what I actually do for a living and aren't interested. I love that, too."

"It turns out to be true that writing novels is a lonely occupation. It changes you. I was very gregarious when I was younger (way too much, I'm sure people who knew me then would say). Now I'm much less so."

    A glorious piece of Chet and Bernie's history! The infamous Tiet

    A glorious piece of Chet and Bernie's history! The infamous Tietelbaum divorce is described in full force with a side dish of realistic convolution that makes it all the better.

    Highly Recommended!!

    Delightful!!! I have all the Chet and Bernie books! Every one of them is so much fun to read! The stories are told from the dog, Chet's, point of view. I dearly LOVE Chet. He is so much fun! I truly believe Spencer Quinn has deep insight into the mind workings of dogs! Also, he is able to describe Chet's actions so well......connecting them with the feelings Chet has....you can just visualize the whole thing. I love how he is able to put into words the loyal love Chet has for Bernie. I hope he never stops writing about Chet and Bernie's adventures together!
