Emily Ruppel has been writing novels since she was five years old, beginning with Blacky, (about a black horse), and quickly followed by Blacky Out West, neither of which can be purchased on Amazon.com.
While waiting for that day to come, Emily lives and works in Louisville, Kentucky as the Associate Director of Communications for the American Scientific Affiliation and as Web Editor for BioLogos. Both organizations are dedicated to promoting discussion and understanding of mainstream science among hard-to-reach groups, specifically evangelical Christians.
In addition to her joint work with ASA and BioLogos, Emily teaches a science writing course to students at her alma mater, Bellarmine University, and has been instrumental in launching the first-ever summer science communication workshop for student scientists interning at Brookhaven National Laboratory.
Emily’s artistic service, Smile Lines, offers caricatures, portraits, and custom artwork to the good people of Louisville, Cincinnati, and southern Indiana.
