Possess Blog Tour: Character Interview

For my stop on the blog tour for Gretchen McNeil's debut, Possess, I got to interview the main character, Bridget. Interviewing a character from a book is much different than interivewing an author, but I asked some questions will hopefully give you all the opportunity to get to know Bridget's character better!
