In late 2007 Spurrier published his first creator-owned novel, Contract, through Hodder Headline. This was followed in 2011 by A Serpent Uncoiled. Spurrier was born in Somewhere-You've-Never-Heard-Of, grew up in the heartlands of Nowhere-Terribly-Interesting, and lives today in North London. He spends much of his time in quiet cafes and pubs, where he exerts an unwanted cosmic magnetism upon any loud or malodorous patrons who should enter.
