Emily Belden is an author for powerhouse publisher, HARLEQUIN. She inked a two-book deal with them in 2016, and her debut novel BURNED will come out in 2017 via their imprint, Graydon House. In 2018, HUSBAND MATERIAL will be released.

Born and raised in Chicago, Emily tiled her bedroom floor in over 60,000 pennies – all heads up for good luck. Local media heard about The Penny Floor and ran the story, which was eventually picked up by The Today Show, who did a live-remote interview with her.

Not long after, Emily pitched her first book, a memoir called Eightysixed. Her journey has since been chronicled by Michigan Avenue Magazine, The Chicago Sun Times, and many other media outlets and blogs.

In 2015 she signed with famed literary agency, Browne & Miller and 44 Blue Productions, who is adapting her memoir into a comedic series.
