Kathy G. Mills: writer, cat-wrangler, and life-long student of everything.

I’m a former teacher and textbook writer who is convinced that anyone can learn anything with the right instruction.

I have a passion for all things financial–whether it’s studying stock market analyses, reading up on the latest from the Federal Reserve, or just spending some quiet time alone estimating my future retirement earnings based on different rates of interest.

Seriously.  That’s me.

I decided to go back to school in my mid-30s and get an accounting degree just for fun.  I was the Arnold Horshack of the class.  I shot my hand up to answer questions every chance I got, I constantly volunteered to work out problems on the board, and on one memorable occasion, I found a mistake in our textbook and pointed it out to the professor in front of the whole class.  Yeah. . .that was my jam.


I’m the proud author of “Market Mojo: a Beginner’s Guide to the Stock Market,” which is the first in a series of books about personal finance.

When I’m not writing, you can usually find me working on a wacky project du jour, and I have a lot of them.  They are documented on my personal website kathygmills.  (As a teaser, I’ll mention here that the site includes boiled egg art and a motorized Dame Edna doll.)  I travel a lot but never take enough pictures, I have exercise equipment that I use to dry my clothes on, and I always seem to be growing my bangs out (I never learn).  I think that pretty much sums it up.

Questions?  Just ask.
