Hi, I am Emily Listfield, writer, editor, single mom — your basic pulled-in-a-million directions New Yorker. I just happen to be lucky – I love each of those roles. Right now, what I’m most excited about is my newest novel, Best Intentions, coming out in May!

Okay, a little bit more background info: I’ve published six other novels, including Waiting to Surface, Acts of Love, The Last Good Night, and the New York Times Notable Book It Was Gonna Be Like Paris—it’s just as exciting (and nerve-racking) every time.

Find out more about Best Intentions, my other books, or me at my website,

Oh, and please visit me on Facebook!
