Millie Naughton was born in Chicago, grew up in Skokie, and has degrees from three different state schools (a Bachelor of Arts from UIUC, Bachelor of Science from Southern, and most recently, a Master of Science from Northern). She credits her parents for being bilingual in Spanish and English. She claims she's a little rusty in French and even took a semester of Japanese in college "just for kicks."
She and her bi-dimpled husband of nearly 17 years have "three awesome kids who make life wonderfully complete." She's always enjoyed writing, reading, traveling (when time and budget allow), and tried a sprint triathlon on a dare for her 40th birthday. She has recently started taking guitar lessons. Her other passion is being a dual language teacher and watching kids learn in two languages.
