What do you like best about writing?

I love most having written! Once that difficult first draft is finished, it's a lot of fun to go back over and over and tweak the words and the story until they feel just right. And I really love hearing from readers - how they connected with my characters, how hungry they felt reading about the food, how they felt as though they were actually visiting Key West.
