How Big of a Problem Is “Head Hopping”? – by Susan DeFreitas…

Question

I am a professional writer and former journalist, but I’m new to writing fiction. I’m wondering whether I’m guilty of “head hopping,” or of author intrusion, by allowing the reader to peek into the thoughts of minor characters of the story.

If this is the case, is it a problem or is it the natural role of an omniscient narrator?
