Biography[edit]

Bill Myers was born into a Christian home, and although as a child he became bored with Christianity, he decided at the University of Washington quote, to "make God my boss." Ironically, at the University his worst subject was writing. He prayed, and said that he would be able to do anything for God, except write. Even so, he has become a prominent Christian writer, and has a large number of successful books and films to his credit.[1]

His book series "The Adventures of McGee and Me" is about a typically average, mild-mannered boy named Nicholas Martin, who has what appears to be an imaginary friend named McGee. The series chronicles the boy's various adventures, all ending with him learning a moral or spiritual lesson.
