Not much of a problem with any of those first four Final clues, but I felt most fortunate to pull that last one out of the fire. Immediately went to Sue Grafton, but discarded it because the clue was clearly worded for a living author. The cities didn't mean anything much to me in this context, nor did the typewriter, but I was able to glean from "20 to 22 hours per day" that it would be someone who puts out a lot of work. Danielle Steel… she seems to churn novels out on an assembly line… best I've got, let's go with it – and it paid off to clean-sweep the week. Heather's MHC was a very good guess.
Something I just recalled about that clue: it ran the day after the premiere of Star Trek: Picard; both Paris and San Francisco made appearances in Thursday's episode, and they're perhaps the two most prominent Earth cities in the franchise. (Paris houses the office of the Federation President, and San Francisco is home to both the Federation Council and Starfleet, stemming from the United Nations Charter having been signed there in 1945.)

When they formed, Roy Orbison, the oldest member of the group, was 52 or about to turn that age. When he died, that left a whole group of men in their 40s. Except Tom Petty. He was 38. He did turn 40 before the group disbanded in 1991.
This was NOT something I needed to see the day after my birthday.
