Darrell Spencer (born 1947) is an American novelist and short story writer. He is best known for his short stories, which are widely published in literary journals and have been the recipients of several awards.[1]


He received his Ph.D. from the University of Utah.

Spencer recently retired from teaching literature and creative writing at Ohio University. He has been praised by Michael Chabon for "[possessing] a remarkable ear for the cadence of everyday speech," and by the New York Times Book Review for his "writing [which] crackles with freshness and lucidity, featuring characters who slide into one another in random encounters and relationships."[2]

He currently teaches creative writing at Southern Utah University.
