I met Denyse while I was substituting for Terri Webster Schrandt on Sunday Stills. We chatted a bit and found out that we were both retired from years in education. We had also both survived cancer – hers much more serious than mine, and most of all we both love blogging, challenges, and interviewing. So we traded interviews.
I am posting her interview on June 11, 2021 as part of my Challenge Interview Series. She posted my interview yesterday in her amazing Women of Courage Series. You may have read about some of the others that she has interviewed, if so you will understand why I felt it was such an honor to be interviewed on her website.
I got this idea from attending the Newcastle Writers Festival in April 2019 and hearing the wonderful Jane Caro speak about her book Accidental Feminists. IF you ever get a chance to listen to or read Jane’s works they are very good.
What I considered after that day and in the days to come is how we women have a tendency to underplay our achievements and whatever else we are doing in our lives. I know this is changing.Denyse Whelan
