About the author (1997)

Mary Higgins Clark was born and raised in New York. Her father died when she was ten. After graduating from high school, her first jobs were as a secretary and an airline stewardess. She flew to Europe, Asia, and Africa for a year, then married Warren Clark, a neighbor of her family nine years older than herself. Warren died in 1964, leaving her with five children. So Clark began to write in earnest. Clark had begun writing short stories when she was first married with little success. After six years and forty rejections, her first story was published by Extension Magazine in 1956 for $100. After becoming a widow she set out to write a novel. The result was Aspire to the Heavens, a piece of biographical fiction about George Washington. This too was poorly received. Undeterred, Clark wrote a novel of suspense, Where Are the Children? published in 1975, which finally became a bestseller. Clark had found her voice, and has since produced sixteen more bestsellers, including While My Pretty One Sleeps, Let Me Call You Sweetheart, Moonlight Becomes You, and Pretend You Don't See Her. Clark has received numerous honors including the Grand Prix de Literature of France (1980) and the Horatio Alger Award (1997). She received the Gold Medal of Honor from the American-Irish Historical Society and the Spirit of Achievement Award from Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University. She is a Dame of the Order of St. Gregory, a Dame of Malta, and a Dame of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem. She has thirteen honorary doctorates.
