The author of the USA Today article, "Consumer Change Written on Faces of Multicultural Dolls," Jolie Lee, contacted me through my website on October 10, 2014.
Hi Debbie, I'm working on a story for USA Today about diversity in dolls and would love to talk to you for my story. Would you be available for a phone interview sometime next week? Thanks! Jolie Lee Reporter USA TODAYShe left her email address and phone number. I was not available for a phone interview but offered instead to answer her questions by email, if she chose to take that route. She did not.
