    "What are your reasons..."

    Dear teachers,
    This sentence is from my own short story. Please would you take a look at it and tell me if I have punctuated it correctly.

    1. "What are your reasons for applying for asylum?" asked me a middle-aged interviewer, who, judging by his paunch and red bloated face, enjoyed good food and drink.
