Meredith Goldstein

Meredith Goldstein is an advice columnist and features reporter for The Boston Globe. Her column, Love Letters, is a daily dispatch of wisdom for the lovelorn that turns nine years old in January. 

In 2018, she’ll release two books: CAN'T HELP MYSELF: Lessons & Confessions from a Modern Advice Columnist, a memoir (Grand Central/Hachette/April 3), and CHEMISTRY LESSONS (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt/June 19), a young adult novel about a woman who tries to use science to manipulate her love life. 

Meredith's debut novel, THE SINGLES, was released by Penguin/Plume. Not surprisingly, it’s a story about complicated relationships.

Meredith was born in New Jersey, raised in Maryland, and lives in Boston with a carnival-size cotton candy machine and a David Bowie doll.

For 17-year-old Maya, the equation for happiness is simple: a dream internship at MIT + two new science nerd friends + a perfect boyfriend = one amazing summer. Then Whit dumps her out of the blue. Maya is miserable until she discovers that her scientist mother, before she died, was conducting research on manipulating pheromones to enhance human attraction. If Maya can finish her mother’s work, maybe she can get Whit back. But when her experiment creates chaos in her love life, she realizes that maybe love and loss can’t be understood using the scientific method.
