Elaine Spires is a novelist, playwright and actress. Extensive travelling and a background in education and tourism perfected Elaine’s keen eye for the quirky characteristics of people, captivating the humorous observations she now affectionately shares with the readers of her novels. Elaine’s latest book The Single Best Thing is a fitting finale to the Singles’ Series, which has its roots in her background as a tour manager for a UK tour operator.
Elaine is now working on The Banjo Book Two, which is set in Dagenham where she grew up and now resides. A banjo is a pedestrianised cul-de-sac and Dagenham has many! This book will be out in the autumn.
Elaine also writes plays and her short film Only the Lonely was made by Dan Films and won the Groucho Club Best Short Film Award 2019 and two Silver Awards at WOFFF 2019.
Elaine is waiting for a film-maker with vision to turn the Singles Series into films or TV dramas.
