-- San Francisco Chronicle
When her husband died in 1964, Clark was left a young widow with five children, and it was then that she decided to try her talents at writing fiction. Her first book was a biographical novel about the life of George Washington, Aspire to the Heavens. In 1975, her first suspense novel, Where Are the Children?, became a number one bestseller and marked a turning point in her life and career.
Clark then decided to take time for things she had always wanted to do. After concentrating on her children's education, getting her own degree was at the top of her list. She entered Fordham University at Lincoln Center, and in 1979, she graduated summa cum laude with a B.A. in philosophy. She has fourteen honorary doctorates.
Since her debut suspense novel in 1975, Clark has become known as the Queen of Suspense, writing one bestseller after another.
In 1987, Clark was the president of the Mystery Writers of America, and for many years, she served on its board of directors.
Clark married John J. Conheeney in 1996. She now lives and writes in their Saddle River, New Jersey, home. Her new suspense novel, We'll Meet Again, will be published in April 1999.

I wanted to avoid the description of "it's a real page-turner," but that is so fitting that I have to use it. Read morePublished on April 15 2003 by Yinzer Grrl
