About Spencer Hawke
This was, in fact, where he got the inspiration for his first published novel Death by Destiny ~ Saving the Dead Sea Scrolls, written under the nom de plume, Logan Crowe. It was while holed up in an abandoned French Foreign Legion outpost called Fort Mirabelle in the middle of the desert in Algeria that the story first struck him. They stayed until the engine was repaired, and cold desert nights watching Bedouin camp fires in the distance and not knowing who was friend or foe was a great catalyst for his over-active imagination.
Eight months later, having dodged many conflicts and machine-gun-toting patrols, the pair rolled into South Africa bound for Australia, determined to swim the coral of the Great Barrier Reef. But fate had a different plan for Logan. In Johannesburg, he met a Brazilian girl who professed undying love for the young Brit. He changed his ticket and flew off to Rio de Janeiro in search of his love.
Once in Rio, she was nowhere to be found. Short on funds, he stayed and got a job with General Motors in Sao Paulo. Eight years and two children later, he had accumulated enough money to take off again for what he thought would be his final destination. Landing in Oklahoma in the middle of the 1980's oil boom, he and his children made a home in Oklahoma City.
Fate again intervened on a trip to Texas when he met the one true love of his life, wife Jenny. The poor misguided soul decided to take him on and has been his inspiration for the last 20 years. Together they are raising another gift from God, grandson Devon, who is already a "chip off the old block" -- an avid adventurer.
From his home in Oklahoma city, Hawke writes a series of espionage thrillers featuring former Mossad agent Ari Cohen and dabbles in screenplays, children’s books and a number of other projects that keep him busy.
