After a much needed trek to Miami with my husband for a little quality time and Ultra Music Festival, I’m back at the computer, finishing my novel before my publisher’s deadline of May 1st.  I had kind of forgotten the details of my creative process until I was back at the grind, writing over 10-15 hours a day.  There are certain things I must have to be able to write successfully, much like green room goodies for a celebrity or rock star, which I’m not.
