Mary Higgins Clark: Active as Ever at Age 85
At age 85, Mary Higgins Clark has authored over forty books and is currently working on her next story, “Daddy’s Gone a Hunting.” She is best known for her mystery novels, but has dabbled in other genres as well. Clark began as a radio script writer and also contributed to magazines such as Collier’s and The Saturday Evening Post. She was widowed in 1964 and soon found that writing was both an enjoyable hobby and a way to earn extra money for her family. Her storytelling skills were recognized quickly by publishers, and today Clark sells about three million books per year worldwide.
