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 the daily blog of the BioLogos Foundation. Both organizations are committed to exploring how science and theology complement one another to increase our understanding of the world we live in and why we're here. As editor of the ASA's God & Nature magazine Emily works to stimulate "conversation beyond the origins controversy" with articles, interviews, poetry, and artwork from writers and scholars around the world.
In addition to her joint work with ASA and BioLogos, Emily has taught a science writing course to students at her alma mater, Bellarmine University, and helped launch the first-ever student science communication workshop for summer interns at Brookhaven National Laboratory, which just enjoyed its second successful year!
Emily’s artistic service, Smile Lines, offers caricatures, portraits, and custom artwork to the good people of Louisville, Cincinnati, and southern Indiana.
