Spears is best known for his play, The Elocution of Benjamin Franklin, but in recent years had been writing a series of crime novels. One such novel,
God's Diary, remains unfinished, though Melbourne playwright Rob George and his wife, Maureen Sherlock, friends of Spears, hope to complete the work.
