Marti Noxon is a television and film writer best known for her work as a writer and executive producer on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Marti (About Buffy's 100th episode): I certainly didn't think I'd still be writing Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and I certainly didn't think that I'd be loving it and passionate about it into my 100th episode or close to it.
Marti: The episodes you see from me which have that kind of dramatic bent are just because that’s where my writing was when I got here and I’ve had the opportunity to keep going in that direction.

 Articles about Marti Noxon
She may be in her mid-30s, but writer Marti Noxon finally knows what she wants to be when she grows up: She wants to be like her mentor, BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and ANGEL creator Joss Whedon.
Noxon serves as a supervising producer on BUFFY and consulting producer on ANGEL, but although she and Whedon are the same age, she feels that as a writer, he is leaps and bounds from where she wants to ultimately be.
Noxon joined "Buffy" during the show's 1997-98 season as story editor before becoming supervising producer, writing and producing nearly a dozen episodes of the WB drama.

 MetroActive Features | 'Buffy, The Vampire Slayer'
Noxon, one of the writers and the supervising producer for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, is standing in hallowed ground, by TV cult standards.
Noxon and Whedon, for instance, scripted "The Prom" episode, in which Angel tells her that he is leaving Sunnydale.
Noxon hops up to answer the phone--it's one of the new actors playing a fraternity boy who is part of a secret military demon-hunting group.

 WHEDONesque : Comments on 6363 : Marti Noxon confirms Point Pleasant cancelation.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
I wish Marti every success and hope that she found the opportunity to bring PP to air to be a valuable, enlightening, and eye-opening journey, driving her to dust herself off and dive into her next project with that much more insight, focus, and experience.
Marti Noxon should be proud of her accomplishments and I'm sure she'll be successful in whatever the future has in store for her, WhedonVerse or no.
I continue to believe that Marti Noxon was one of the finest BtVS writers, that some of her best episodes came after Season 3, and that many fans' apparently personal dislike of her is a fall-out of their (totally legitimate, if wrong ;) distaste for Season 6.

 [No title]   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
But Noxon kills off Cordelia by making her the rare meat in a vampiric-Xander-and-Willow sandwich (a tremendously disturbing death, creepy and outrageously sexual at the same time; fantastic direction by David Greenwalt), which means it falls to Giles to figure out what's going on.
Noxon's dialogue, one of her several longstanding weaknesses, was some of the best it's been, and her thrill ride was a good, if transitory, one.
That is a kind of honesty and simplicity Marti Noxon has never achieved before, and could never achieve in a thousand stilted, histrionic scenes.

 Science Fiction Weekly Interview
Noxon: In a perfect world, my preference would be for both shows to be on the same network.
Noxon: I think we'll have the same amount, which is in a sense a cut, because every year in general, every person who's been working on the show, their fees go up a little bit, just through labor laws.
Noxon: It grew out of the fact that Tony wanted to be closer to his family.

 Behind the Scenes
We venture into several aspects of Marti's life; past, present and future to discover quite an amazing sense of humor to go along with her ability to tap into the most emotional reservoirs of life, love and the world of the macabre.
Marti is a charming young woman with a healthy outlook on life despite the once appointed nickname of "Suicide Girl" from her Buffy crewmates.
Once quoted as a 'self-proclaimed introvert' when she was a teenager, to which Marti now finds rather funny, it is not uncommon to think that writing had helped to bring her out of this so-called shell or allow her to express herself in different ways.

 WHEDONesque : Comments on 6297 : Marti Noxon "pretty much counting on not coming back" To Point Pleasant.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
Marti says how they went through a process to see what worked and didn’t and that says to me she may have been trying to get everyone on the same page tone-wise as well as how the stories were going to develop.
Marti is obviously going to be free, Eliza is free as far as I know, and James wants to do it.
Well, the topic seems to be the Noxon doesn't expect Point Pleasant to come back and judging from the discussion, Whedonesquers agree with her.

 Slayage.com : Slayer Information : Buffy The Vampire Slayer & Angel The Series
Marti: Yeah -- I just filled out a questionnaire for a writing program I was part of, and they asked, "What are the things that have contributed to you having a good career?" It was the practical things, like having good luck and hard work and perseverance...and a really grim childhood.
Marti: The fun part of it is that you are able to really take full responsibility for the end product in a way that you can't when you just write it.
Marti: I used to, but then, I have to be honest, I logged on one day, and the first thing I saw was, "Marti Noxon sucks!" And I knew that it was one person, some place in America, but I couldn't get it out of my head.

 Zap2it - TV news - 'Buffy' Vet Noxon Has 'Pleasant' Memories
Set in New Jersey but shot in San Diego, the supernatural soap focused on a mysterious girl named Christina (Elizabeth Harnois) who is fished from the Atlantic and proceeds to turn life upside down in a beachside town because she is, well, a spawn of Satan.
Noxon, though, doesn't lay all the blame for the show's fate on the itchy trigger fingers of FOX executives.
Noxon is now steering her own ship, developing a pair of pilots, one of which she's sold to FOX and the other, to ABC.

Marti began Season 5 by writing the premiere episode; "Buffy vs. Dracula" as well as Part I of the 2-hour Season 6 premiere; "Bargaining", which followed on the heels of their landmark 100th episode where Buffy sacrifices her life to save the world, again.
Marti was faced with the extreme challenge of bringing Buffy back from the dead and although Marti dares not give anything away, I asked her to think of the new Buffy and Angel seasons and tell me the first three adjectives that came to mind.
But Marti is not your typical producer/writer, you never know what this young woman has up her sleeve.

 Marti Noxon Talks About “Sometimes a Miracle”
I love Marti Noxon from her days on Buffy, and it was so nice to see her name pop up on the screen during a Grey’s Anatomy episode.
So if you’d like to hear her thoughts on what it was like working for Grey’s, head on over to Grey Matter to read all about it.
For some of us life has and does come in rapid-fire succession and you have to choose, daily, minute by minute to stay present, appreciate the good no mater how sparse or interrupted and cling to it for dear life.

Producer Marti Noxon, of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER fame, discusses Xander, Willow, Spike, and of course Ms.
As the creative boss of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER (not including series creator Joss Whedon, of course), producer Marti Noxon is the chief guiding force in the lives of the title character and her fellow residents of Sunnydale.
Noxon is clearly high on the show after all this time, and gives high marks to creator Whedon for maintaining a high level of quality.

Marti Noxon, executive producer of UPN's Buffy the Vampire Slayer in its last seasons, told SCI FI Wire that the popular series' characters may live on in direct-to-DVD movies.
But Noxon said that she doubts that star Sarah Michelle Gellar would reprise her role as Buffy and added that she thought it might be tough to persuade Alyson Hannigan to return as Willow.
At the moment, Noxon said she isn't involved in writing any of the DVD movie scripts, but that she could be in the future.

This is one reason I avoid Marti Noxon's interviews, because I can't shake the gut sense she wasn't the most secure in her S6 producer/headmistress role, hence the endless explanatory interviews where she seemed to invariably make things worse.
Marti Noxon's interview quote, provided by ponygirl, in which she compares Buffy's experience to Joss Whedon's life, would probably be biographical criticism.
Marti says in her SFX interview that the reasons given were a bit of a stretch.

 OPINION : 'Filtering' by Daniel Erenberg : Buffy News : Slayage.com
Marti Noxon (right) came in and wrote loads of episodes, many of them instant classics like "Surprise", "Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered", and "I Only Have Eyes For You".
Just as in season two with Noxon and Fury, two brilliant writers were added who remain on the show to the end: Jane Espenson and Douglas Petrie.
The biggest change to the writing staff in season six was Joss making Marti Noxon co-executive producer, thereby making her the head writer of the staff.

Though this is a vocally argued criticism, it is one that is largely limited to the margins of Buffy fandom, and as such is considered esoteric by many viewers of the show.
Indeed, many Buffy aficionados haven't even heard of Noxon or the supposed controversy over her contribution to the show's direction.
After Buffy concluded its seventh, final season, Noxon went on to create Point Pleasant, of which she is the executive producer.

On the surface it may look like the postcard portrait of peace and tranquility, but a scenic coastal community becomes Ground Zero in a battle between good and evil when a young woman is mysteriously washed ashore in Point Pleasant.
Helping to transform the town of the title into this supernatural slanging match is executive producer Marti Noxon, a veteran of the seven season hit Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Noxon — who wrote six of Buffy’s seven seasons — jumped on board at the invitation of Point Pleasant’s creator and executive producer Dawn Parouse.

 Marti Noxons Point Pleasant
But "Point Pleasant," created by Marti Noxon, who wrote on "Buffy" and its spinoff "Angel," lacks a stylistic imprint and, more important, a sense that you could become invested in the layers the show will gradually reveal.
Noxon said in an interview that she wanted him to join in the future..
Executive-produced by Marti Noxon, who was Joss Whedon’s right-hand woman on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Point Pleasant is part booty call in the manner of Fox’s hit soap The OC and part supernatural thriller.

Not to belittle Marti's contribution, but that episode would have been a classic no matter who wrote it, and I'll go out on a limb and suppose that JW is responsible for that little twist.
What perplexes me about the Marti criticism is that people use her as a lightning conductor for Joss, criticising her for comments that they never would have criticised Joss for.
A lot of the flack about Marti's husband and her personal issues don't come from anything she's said, but comments by James Marsters, which were not intended to be uncomplimentary to Marti, but were quoted by fans as being so.
