Novel Writing Software – About the Creators

Evan Marshall

Evan Marshall created The Marshall Plan for Novel Writing® in 1998 after studying fiction bestsellers. The action and reaction sections in The Marshall Plan® create the scene-by-scene rhythm of commercially successful fiction. Fans wrote saying the book should be software and ten years later it was. Since then, it has helped tens of thousands of writers become published authors. Evan has authored 10 traditionally-published cozy mysteries in the Hidden Manhattan series and Jane Stuart series, called “Miss Marple lite” by Kirkus Review. He is President of The Evan Marshall Agency, celebrating its 30th year, and is an award-winning literary agent and fiction expert. He has held senior editorial positions at Houghton Mifflin, Ariel Books, New American Library, Everest House and Dodd, Mead and has acquired and represented many bestsellers.
