Character interviews are an interesting and creative way to introduce potential readers to a book's character(s).  The fun is deciding how your character would answer the question but the questions the interviewer might ask are more problematic.   Let's share sample questions.  Any takers?  My character interviews on my blog at have a number of such questions.

Funny you should mention it! I just sent off my first batch of character interview questions to a fellow author earlier this afternoon. I must say, as a reader, I love the idea. It's probably the closest one can get to actually meeting the characters!

Yes, I'd like to participate. I'll swap character interviews to be posted on our blogs. If this sounds good, let me know. I've skimmed your blog and would like to come up with some questions. give me until the first part of next week since I'll be busy this weekend. Let me know how I can contact you.

Hi Stephen.  Please contact me about swapping character interviews at

Thats a wonderful idea. My book series, Hidden World, Past, Present and Future (book 1) my character Helaina has her own facebook page, I love pretending to be a 15 year old. (I'm 52) Sandy Golden

Hi everyone.  Starting Monday I'll post 10 suggested questions and I'll keep adding questions until I get to 70.  I hope you'll give me your suggestions at or post them here.  It's the way different characters answer the questions that is interesting not the questions themselves.  I agree with Sandra Golden, it's fun answering questions in character.

I hope this operation's still running when my book comes out, because that sounds like a lot of fun!

Why wait?   Get your character tuned up now and start getting people interested; a coming soon event.

Very cool fun and interactive interview!  Love it.  Will definitely be following this thread.

Here are ten character interview questions.  How does your character respond?  Please remember it is your character answering not the author (you).

1.  What is your author like?

2. Tell me about the place where you live.

3.  What is your family like?

4.  Who is your best friend in the world and what is he/she like?

5.  What is the thing you are most proud of?

6.  If you had a day to do anything you wanted, what would you do?

7.  What is your home like?

8.  What is your most prized possession?

9.  How would you describe yourself?

10. Where do you work (go to school)?


I'll be happy to do this. I've done it once before and it's a lot of fun.

I'm G G Collins and wrote "Reluctant Medium," a paranormal mystery.

Thanks for the opportunity. GG

This is a great idea and something I'll look into further. I may even swap character interviews with others, when I get one completed. Thanks, Michael!
