William Martin (novelist)
William Martin is an American author of historical novels, a native of Boston, MA.
William Martin grew up in West Roxbury and Roslindale, Massachusetts, and graduated from Harvard University in 1972 where he majored in English. He worked as an historical research assistant and directed theater in the evening.
Martin wrote two screenplays in an effort to get into the writing business. Producers and his agent suggested that, to best take advantage of his writing style, Martin should write a novel. Based on the outline of his first novel, Martin obtained a $7,500 publishing deal. The book, Back Bay, was published in 1979 and reached the New York Times bestseller list.
