I have a question. Do you fit this character you have said?

I only ask because writers make characters that fit their audience because you can project yourself into the character.

I only ask because (most good) writers make main characters based upon their audience. So if the audience is children they make the main character a child for example maze runner and hunger games. They both have teenage main characters and they both are for teenagers.

It's so the reader can empathise better with the character.

yes, what you say is true.

So most women are probably drinking far too much, miserable and spying on their neighbours, and can't cook.

Interesting.

It really depends on the types of books that draw your attention what you are going to see. Most of the books I read are about men in their 30s/40s.

but I assume each one of those books, the character is different and unique in some way.
