It is with Great Pleasure and an Honor to Interview Author Deanie Humphrys-Dunne.

Geri: What inspires you to write?
Deanie: I'd like to become a role model for children, so they know that anything is possible if
you persevere. I don't think this message is emphasized in today's world, so many
children may not reach their dreams, because they are not encouraged to do so.
Geri: Who is your favorite author?
Deanie: I love reading books by former 'First Lady' Barbara Bush. She writes with wisdom,
Geri: If you were to write in a different genre, what would it be?
Deanie: I am most comfortable writing for children, but maybe I'd also like to write something
to inspire young adults.
Geri: Did you enjoy reading as a child?
Deanie: Yes, I loved amusing stories, and tales with happy endings. I think reading can take
you on a lot of adventures you wouldn't otherwise experience, so you can explore all
kinds of new areas.
Geri: Do you have current work in progress?
Deanie: Yes, my next book "CHARLENE THE STAR" is nearly completed. My sister, Holly
Humphrys-Bajaj, illustrates my books, and she's just finishing the last picture for it.
Geri: Thank you very much for your time. I wish you much success in your writing journey.
Deanie: You're welcome.
