  • About Me

    EMILY SCHULTZ is the author of the novel Heaven Is Small, which the Vancouver Sun called “a stunning, often surprising read with moments of such audacity that the reader is likely to gasp out loud.” Having lived in the Midwest and Virginia, Schultz now resides in Toronto where she co-founded the literary website Joyland.

    Reviews for Heaven Is Small

    A young writer dubbed promising for her first three books, Schultz now keeps that promise: Heaven is Small is confident, disturbing and clever reeling us along, prodding us to notice the lame trappings of what we call living…. Schultz's voice is stronger than ever, her storytelling tighter and her writing still replete with those trademark ziplines, surprising little protons of description that vault the reader into Schultz's unique narrative universe.
    —Globe and Mail

    Schultz has created a delightful cast of lost souls . . . Heaven is Small is a keen examination of life and the afterlife, brimming with intelligence and wit.
    —Quill & Quire

    Emily Schultz is one of those forces of nature that propels a literary scene.
    —Toronto Star

    Welcome to fictionaut, Emily.
    I especially love "because I'd never been attracted to Greek men." Very funny start.

    I am looking forward to reading more.
