How One Book Changed My Life

It’s scary how one book can make such a big difference in your life.  The book for me was “The Marshall Plan for Novel Writing” by Evan Marshall.   I have piles of books on how to write, but they all told me what I should do, not how I could do it.  Once I stumbled on Mr. Marshall’s book, he explained how to outline and how to merge viewpoint characters, story lines and other elements of the novel together.  Gone were the days when I would write 32 pages and everything would fall apart. 

Since I have been using his method, I have published 2 mystery novels with the 3rd one about to be published in a week or two.  My books are selling on and I now have a growing dedicated group of people who are reading my novels.  I have conducted book signings, spoken at book clubs and sold my books at various events around the country.  Thank you Evan Marshall!!!!


About Hurricane River Publishing

I write mystery novels. The Butterfly Conspiracy and The Peacock Prophecy, feature Stepehn Moorehouse, his Uncle Phillip Kahle, and Stephen's romantic interest, Jeanette St. Jacques. The Maze At Four Chimneys features John Barrington and his family. The Black Orchid Mystery features a detective named Archie Archibald. This book takes place in Vero Beach, Florida but has ties to John Barrington from The Maze book. My latest book, Menagerie of Broken Dreams, brings back Stephen Moorhouse and his uncle Philip, as they travel to central Florida to make a movie. Things don't go as planned when they meet Doctor Merryweather and his run down roadside attraction the Menagerie.

  1. So many writers seem to start off strong, guided by a vision and energy only to get lost in the forest of words and the many paths that confuse them.
    Finishing a book is a complete a difficult trek. SELLING copies is winning the marathon.
