How Did Maggie McNair Begin?
When I was just a little four year old, I loved flying kites and dreaming of cooking gourmet meals, but there was one thing that I despised…having my hair brushed! I mean I REALLY didn’t like it! My mom would always tell me that I need to have “the spiders” brushed out. She was just talking about the little knots in my hair, but I didn’t know that.
Then one day she thought, “Hey, that’s a good idea for a story!”
So she wrote Maggie McNair Has Spiders in Her Hair and thought it would get me to brush my hair. It worked!
An Idea Brought to Life
Then she met an illustrator (aka Uncle Norris) and asked him to make me come to life as a character. They put pictures with words and made a book. It became popular with kids in elementary schools. Not long after that, they made two more books– Maggie McNair Wears Stinky Underwear and Maggie McNair Has Sugar Bugs in There. Creating stories about “Hi-Gene” kept them very busy. They even have a story about keeping your finger out of your nose; Maggie McNair, Get Your Finger Out of There! Not that I ever did that but there are a lot of kids that do! They’ve been visiting schools all over the country and presenting my stories to thousands of children, and teachers—although it’s a little embarrassing for the world to know my past, ummm…issues. They often visit book stores and sign a LOT of books. I even sign a few myself!
My mom always believed that me and my bug friends would be animated and have our very own show. One day something pretty amazing happened to her—I’ll let her share that part. So now my Uncle Norris, and mom, are also script writing and working with a great team on a really cool project called Maggie McNair’s World…Hey, that’s me!
