Evan Marshall

Evan Marshall always wanted to publish a novel. When he moved to New York City and became a literary agent, he surveyed commercial fiction bestsellers as a contributing editor for Writer’s Digest magazine. The novel-writing technique he invented integrates viewpoint writing and viewpoint character development with scene-by-scene plotting. His technique became known as The Marshall Plan® For Novel Writing (after his last name) and was published in The Marshall Plan® For Novel Writing (Writer’s Digest, 1998), a bestselling writing guide and instant classic now in its 20th anniversary edition. The Marshall Plan® For Novel Writing demystified novel writing for a massive audience and is the industry’s #1 go-to novel-writing technique for people who want to write a commercial novel fast.

Evan owns The Evan Marshall Agency, an independent literary agency specializing in fiction for more than 30 years. He is an internationally renowned expert on the path to writing a book.

Evan achieved his dream when he authored ten traditionally published titles, now ebooks #poweredbyindie and in KindleUnlimited, four in the Hidden Manhattan series and six in the Jane and Winky Suburban Sleuths series, called “Miss Marple lite!” by Kirkus Reviews.
