Emily Rodavich is a product of several small industrial communities in the Pittsburgh area. She attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania and later graduated from Waynesburg University in Waynesburg, Pennsylvania. Mystical Interludes is her first book, though her artistic endeavors have bloomed elsewhere. In 1968 she collaborated with Jay Christopher in writing lyrics for a musical written by Christopher and her pianist husband, Carl Geruschat. The musical, Your Most Humble Servant, based on the lives of Samuel Johnson and his biographer James Boswell, was produced at the White Barn Theater in Irwin, Pennsylvania, and also in a small theater in London, England. While teaching high school English, she directed school plays and also patented a hands-on methodology for teaching the parts of speech. Emily has traveled to parts of the United States and to Europe, Egypt, China, Thailand, and Israel partly to explore spiritual, religious, and supernatural mysteries, including her own. She is mother to three children and grandmother to two grandsons and two granddaughters. Her offspring include several talented musicians and singer/songwriters. Visit emilyrodavich.com.
