Marja Mills

Born and raised in Madison, Wisconsin,  Marja Mills graduated in 1985 from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service, where she developed a love for other cultures.  She is perhaps best known for her work as author of The Mockingbird Next Door, a non-fiction account that takes the reader into the world of Nelle Lee, better known to the world at large as Harper Lee, author of To Kill a Mockingbird.  A writer with a slow and comfortable pace who loves travel and has spent time in Spain and Sweden, in Next Door, Mills tells the story of becoming  an insider in a completely different setting-- tiny Monroeville, Alabama, Harper Lee’s hometown.

Outside her adventure in Monroeville, Mills was a feature writer and reporter for the Chicago Tribune and won a Pulitzer Prize in 2001 for her work with a team that resulted in a feature on the O’Hare Airport, titled “Gateway to Gridlock.”  She still resides in Chicago, but also enjoys occasional trips home to Madison, and to her father’s hometown of Black River Falls.
