Wedding Party

Jacob Mack

J Mack and Maragunda have been best friends since the beginning of time. He is Mara’s brother from another mother. Basically.

Whitney Fong

Mara and Whidget go way, way back to when they were naughty high schoolers together and enjoyed sneaking into college dances and pretending to be twin sisters

Sarah Howes

Sarah & Mara have been besties since they were roommates while working as starving actors at the Brownville Village Theatre in Nebraska.

Ashley Decker

Ashley & Mara have been friends since they were first graders at Heart River Elementary School when they still believed in leprechauns and thought boys were nasty

Jessica Holdman

Jessica and Mara have been friends since they worked together as starving journalists at the Bismarck Tribune and amused themselves by taking photos with large animal sculptures and gnomes.
