About Ty Spencer Vossler

Ty Spencer Vossler was born in central California's San Joaquin Valley, raised on a small farm near the labor-camp community of Woodville. He attended his first eight years of school in Woodville, where he came to appreciate the Mexican culture. Woodville Elementary school was staffed with wonderful, caring teachers, and Vossler still considers that his love for education was born there.

About twenty-five years ago, Vossler threw his television into the garbage. The originality of his work can be attributed to the fact that media influences are kept to a minimum.

His creative fiction mixes reality and fantasy, and it’s difficult to tell which is which.

Vossler received a BA in literature from Point Loma University, an MFA in creative writing, from Lindenwood University, and has taught literature and creative writing for more than twenty-five years, (eight in Mexico). He offers creative writing seminars and workshops.

The writer currently lives in Pacific Grove, California with his BMW (beautiful Mexican wife) and their daughter.  He enjoys using his many years of writing experience to help others, which is why he now teaches at a small middle school in the North Salinas Valley.

In  2021, the author published two new novels, DEEP MUD (Evolved Publishing), and MEADOWLAND (World Castle Publishing). LADYSMITH, a deeply disturbing portrayal of bullying and the long term effects it has on a troubled young man, is available now.
