I like to interview them as if I were a reporter or maybe a police detective and put some substance into the interview.

It's not ideal to work under stress but it's possible. And I love to interact with readers as I'm just starting out and I want to learn from my readers - what did they love about my book - what did they feel was only 'meh'? I've always wanted to be a writer from the time I was in high school but paying the bills was a priority so for decades I put it aside.(less)
