Amanda MacKenzie is a writer from Cambridge. After graduating from the University of Richmond, she taught English in Hungary, earned a Master of Divinity, and become an ordained Congregational minister. In her thirties, Amanda had a do-over and went to work on a small farm. She also catered farm-to-table dinners. Her crowning achievement was a rustic country wedding for a hundred, after which she drank all the leftover wine straight from the bottle and decided to stick to cooking for fun. Today she is a part time professor of world religions, preaches, meditates, and practices yoga. She believes in the power of positivity, possibility, and good coffee. The Do-Over is her first book.


Dietrich Strause’s songs are a mix of timeless melody, literate lyricism, and a "virtuosic command of imagery.” (The Artery, WBUR) ​In less than one year, Strause released ​two albums -- How Cruel That Hunger Binds and Dietrich Strause & The Blue Ribbons -- proving himself to be one of the most prolific and eclectic writers and performers coming out of New England. His blend of midcentury modern pop and atomic-age folk has drawn comparisons to M. Ward and a young Paul Simon​ and has garnered him invitations to support folk luminaries such as Anais Mitchell and Sarah Jarosz, to indie pop acts like Great Lake Swimmers and Lake Street Dive. This fall he spent three months living in London and touring extensively throughout the UK & Ireland by train and foot, writing material for his next release.
