Robert Strozier first caught the musical bug singing alto in the Church of Redeemer boys’ choir in Chicago before going on to a long and checkered literary career. He’s helped launch or relaunch five national magazines, served as editor-in-chief of two, World and Grand, and, along the way, worked at the Ford Foundation in India, written ad copy, and churned out jokes for Joan Rivers. His fiction and non-fiction have appeared in numerous publications including Atlantic Monthly, Esquire, The New York Times Magazine, The New York Times Book Review, and Saturday Review.

Barbara Hustedt Crook spent a large part of her childhood and teen years playing the piano and singing in a girls’ trio that was Florida state runner-up in Coca-Cola Talentsville, USA,

the original “American Idol.” Though she then took an unexpected turn into journalism--she’s been a senior editor at Cosmopolitan, written for magazines including Cosmo, Reader’s Digest, Redbook, and Woman’s Day, and is now a regular contributor to Woman’s World--she’s never stopped hearing the music, as witnessed by gigs along the way as a church soloist and radio deejay, where she honed her knack for spotting a catchy tune.
