Jill Marsal is a founding partner of the Marsal Lyon Literary Agency and has been in the publishing industry for over 15 years. Previously, she worked as a Literary Agent with the Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency for eight years and at Dorchester Publications and Tudor Publishing, editing women's fiction and suspense/thrillers. Jill also has a strong legal background and holds a J.D. from Harvard Law School. She practiced as an attorney with Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati for five years.
On the fiction front, Jill looks for all types of women's fiction and stories about women, stories of family, interesting relationships, Southern fiction, or multi-generations, and all types of romance, including romantic suspense, historical, contemporary, and category romance. She also is looking for mysteries, cozies, suspense, and thrillers that keep the pages turning and have an original hook. She likes general commercial fiction and welcomes a dramatic storyline and compelling characters in interesting situations or relationships. If you have a novel that has a highly original concept or voice, Jill would love to see it.
On the non-fiction side, Jill's areas of interest include current events, business, health, self-help, relationships, psychology, parenting, history, science, and narrative non-fiction. She is particularly drawn to projects which will move readers or leave them thinking, which make provocative arguments or share interesting research, or which offer useful, new advice.
Jill enjoys working with both new and experienced authors. A few of Jillís recent and soon to be published books include BUT SUGAR IS TWICE AS SWEET by Marina Adair (Grand Central), THE MANGO BRIDE by Marivi Soliven (NAL), ALPHA INSTINCT by Katie Reus (NAL), SHE CAN RUN by Melinda Leigh (Montlake), PUT YOUR MINDSET TO WORK by NYT bestselling authors by James Reed and Paul G. Stoltz (Portfolio/Penguin), FREE TO LEARN by Peter Gray (Basic), and FACE YOUR FEARS by Dr. David Tolin (Wiley).
