Virginia Burton Stringer, is a critically acclaimed playwright and author of The Maagy Series. Ginny, as she is called by friends and family, grew up in Mathews, Virginia spending most of her childhood on her grandparent’s farm on the North River. Her days were filled with freedom to roam the acreage and interaction with the many animals including horses, cattle, chickens, and pigs (thus, the character Miss Trinny McBride!). Grandpa Kris and Grandma Polly are based on her grandparents, Robert S. Burton, Sr. and Bertha Miller Burton. Ginny attended Virginia Commonwealth University majoring in dramatic art. She enjoyed a brief career as a professional actor then turned to directing and eventually teaching high school drama.
The idea for a novel series about an impetuous princess came to Ginny when she found herself with an “empty nest”. Virginia and husband Bill have a son and two daughters, as well as a grandson and two granddaughters. Her inspiration for her fiery Princess Maagy came from watching her little girls grow up and face the many struggles of adolescence. At the same time, son David was coping with two fiery princesses of his own. She began to reflect on the journey of her daughters, as well as her own journey into womanhood in a way that she had not before, and thus, Princess Maagy was born. The Maagy Series portrays a stubborn and somewhat unruly child growing into a strong, self-reliant woman as have her daughters. Her granddaughters are on the same path.
“Our little princesses do become warriors. I want young girls to feel empowered by the changes in their minds and bodies as those turbulent hormones rage and drive them toward a new awakening in adulthood. I want them to know it’s okay to make mistakes, to be stubborn and determined, to negotiate for better things, and to set firm boundaries of their choosing. All young women are warriors in their own right.”

The Enchanted Hour: The Miraculous Power of Reading Aloud in the Age of Distraction by Meghan Cox Gurdon
304 pages | Published January 15th 2019 by Harper
A Wall Street Journal writer’s conversation-changing look at how reading aloud makes adults and children smarter, happier, healthier, more successful and more closely attached, even as technology pulls in the other direction.
A miraculous alchemy occurs when one person reads to another, transforming the simple stuff of a book, a voice, and a bit of time into complex and powerful fuel for the heart, brain, and imagination. Grounded in the latest neuroscience and behavioral research, and drawing widely from literature, The Enchanted Hour explains the dazzling cognitive and social-emotional benefits that await children, whatever their class, nationality or family background. But it’s not just about bedtime stories for little kids: Reading aloud consoles, uplifts and invigorates at every age, deepening the intellectual lives and emotional well-being of teenagers and adults, too.
Meghan Cox Gurdon argues that this ancient practice is a fast-working antidote to the fractured attention spans, atomized families and unfulfilling ephemera of the tech era, helping to replenish what our devices are leaching away. For everyone, reading aloud engages the mind in complex narratives; for children, it’s an irreplaceable gift that builds vocabulary, fosters imagination, and kindles a lifelong appreciation of language, stories and pictures.
Bringing together the latest scientific research, practical tips, and reading recommendations, The Enchanted Hour will both charm and galvanize, inspiring readers to share this invaluable, life-altering tradition with the people they love most.
