BARBARA SAMUEL O’NEAL fell in love with food and restaurants at the age fifteen when she landed a job at a Greek café and served baklava for the first time. She sold her first novel in her twenties and has since won a plethora of awards, including two Colorado Book Awards and six prestigious RITAs. One was for The Lost Recipe for Happiness in 2010, written as Barbara O’Neal. Writing as Barbara Samuel, she has published five novels of women’s fiction and seven novels of historical fiction. Her novels, which often include recipes, have been published widely in Europe and Australia, and she travels internationally, presenting workshops, hiking hundreds of miles, and of course, eating. She lives in her hometown of Colorado Springs.
RACHEL WEAVER Weaver is the author of the novel, Point of Direction, which Oprah magazine described as a “strikingly vivid debut novel.” In his review on NPR’s All Things Considered, Alan Cheuse described the novel as one that “pulls you in.” Point of Direction was chosen by the American Booksellers Association as a top ten debut for Spring 2014, by IndieBound as an Indie Next List Pick, and by Yoga Journal as one of their top five suggested summer reads. Prior to earning her MFA in Writing and Poetics from Naropa University, Rachel worked as a biologist for the Forest Service in Alaska studying bears, raptors and songbirds. She is on faculty at Regis University’s low-residency MFA program and at Lighthouse Writers Workshop. She just won the prestigious Willa Award.
