Maggie Estep is a New Jersey born poet and writer. She released two albums: Love is a Dog From Hell and No More Mr. Nice Girl. She emerged in the early 1990s when grunge was the height of fashion and her aggressive political and gender-themed rant poetry was highly accessible. Her closest brush with megastardom was with the track Hey Baby, with an accompanying video that received moderate rotation on MTV. The video was highlighted on Beavis & Butt-head.
Estep went on to write several novels including the mystery novels featuring Ruby Murphy, Gargantuan and Hex.
