Susanne Huffman and Mindy Nix

Susanne Huffman and Mindy Nix are mother-daughter French professors, business owners and lifelong Francophiles. They created their business, Oui & Sí, to share their love of language, travel and culture with others. When they aren't reading, writing or teaching, they are dreaming up their next trip to Paris together. They are both married to men who lovingly oblige their adoration of all things French and are their biggest supporters in all of their endeavours.

Susanne has a son named Oliver who loves French music and pain au chocolat. Mindy has two grown children, Susanne and her brother, Doug, and three grandchildren whom she dreams of taking to France.


  • The French Professor


    Margaret is a middle-aged divorcée with a laundry list of neuroses. Flying, germs and social situations all make her sweat. She's spent her life hiding behind her intense job and rigid routines, which is why she's as surprised as anyone when she abruptly walks away from her career to study French.
