  1. Thank you so much for participating, Luanne! You did a great job…exactly what I was looking for with the summer spotlight series. I so enjoyed reading your answers to my questions. You can learn a lot about someone when a few questions are asked.
    Thanks again! xo

    • Jill, those were great questions. They really made me think about things that are in the back of my mind but I don’t necessarily think about them that often (except the animals). Thank you so much for the invitation!

  2. I love that profile photo of you, Luanne. Very posh, but natural.

  3. This was a great interview, with interesting questions and even more interesting answers. I love learning more about the bloggers I follow. :)
    You photo reminds me of the girl next door. Very lovely. :)

  4. Great interview Luanne! I had no idea you were a ‘crazy cat lady’, lol. And Doll God is a great title :)

  5. Nice interview, Luanne. :-)

  6. I was very enthralled to see the beautiful photograph of you! You should use this as your gravitar! I also enjoyed the great description of your life, written by Jill. She must have asked great questions, since the biography sounds just like you and more details that I was very interested in knowing about you! Good luck on the book and continued progress on your memoir, too! Smiles, Robin
