Rachel 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 has been teaching fiction since 2004 and currently serves on the fiction faculty in Regis University's low residency MFA program. She has recently been awarded the Robert and Daryl Davis Fellowship in Fiction at Seaside Conference and a residency at Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts.
