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."

He currently teaches creative writing at Southern Utah University.
