    In an interview to the Times

    Have I made any mistakes?

    In an interview to the Times, writer Anna Bennet admitted that she had a bad conscience because she had given all her love and attention to her firstborn child, Eva, while having no energy left for her other three children.

    Write leaving no energy for her other three children.

    You used the wrong preposition in the first sentence.

    I should have written "with the Times".

    Or in the Times if you're thinking about where the interview appeared rather than who conducted it. In is more natural in most cases because it's a reporter, not the newspaper as a whole, that interviews people.
