While working with Emma Rodgers and the Black Images family, Spencer discovered she had a talent. That talent was writing and creating good attention getting fiction. She immediately begin working on her first novel, Keep It On The Down Low and completed it in 1996. While having agents scout the manuscript, she wrote her second novel, Cubicles and placed it on the shelf for later release.
