More About the Author

If I were to define myself in one sentence, I would say, "I'm a nice Irish Catholic girl from the Bronx."

I was a Christmas Eve baby all those years ago, the second of the three children of Nora and Luke Higgins. Mother was pushing forty when they married and my father was forty-two. My older brother was named Joseph. Nineteen months later I, Mary, was born. Three and a half years later, my little brother, John, came along.

We lived in a very nice section of the Bronx on a street off Pelham Parkway. I loved our house. I still love it. After my father died, when I was eleven, my mother had to sell it.

I went to Saint Francis Xavier Grammar School. Two years ago I went back and was Principal for a Day. Escorted by two of the tiniest children, I was led into the auditorium while the whole student body sang "Hello Mary. You're back where you belong." I still tear up thinking about it.

I was awarded a scholarship to Villa Maria Academy which is in the Pelham Bay section of the Bronx, otherwise I couldn't have afforded to set foot in it.

I went to Woods Secretarial School and at eighteen had my first full-time job as Secretary to the creative director of Remington Rand's in-house advertising agency. If I were making that choice now I would have gone to college even though God knows we needed the income. On the other hand the three years I spent in Remington Rand was a tutorial in advertising which served me well when I was widowed with five small children. Another plus was that I left Remington to be a flight stewardess with Pan American Airways and when my contemporaries were seniors in college, I was flying to Europe, Africa and Asia.

Warren Clark and I were married on December 26, 1949 and had five children in the next eight years; Marilyn, Warren, David, Carol and Patricia. Warren died of a heart attack in 1964. The highest compliment I can pay my kids are that they are like him.

I sold my first short story when I was twenty-eight. It was alled 'Stowaway'. It had been rejected forty times before a magazine in Chicago bought it for one hundred dollars.

My first book was about George Washington. It was published in 1969 and disappeared without a trace. Three years ago Simon and Schuster co-published it with the Mount Vernon Historical Society and retitled 'Mount Vernon Love Story', it became a bestseller.

My first suspense novel 'Where Are the Children' was bought in 1974 for three thousand dollars by Simon and Schuster. Thirty-three books later, I'm still with S&S.

Time to wind up - at least for the present. As soon as I sold 'Children' I enrolled in Fordham College. Went there for five years at night and earned a B.A. in Philosophy. Summa cum laude, if you please.

I never thought I'd marry again but ten years ago I threw a cocktail party on St. Patrick's day. My daughter, Pat, urged me to invite John Conheeney. Her opening words about him were, "Have I got a hunk for you!" He came to the party and we were married eight months later.

I'm Honorary Chairman of FraXa Research. My grandson, David, has the Fragile X syndrome, which is the second leading cause of retardation after Downs Syndrome. Basically the brain of the people who have it can't send out the proper signals because there's a kind of short circuit in the synapses that carry the signals. We raise money for research with the goal of finding a medication that will work around that short circuit. I go all over the country to the fund-raisers as new chapters of FraXa are opened.

I'm always asked to name my favorite book. They're ALL my favorites. If there is one book that is very special to me, it is my memoir 'Kitchen Privileges' because writing it made me relive my early life including those first struggles to become a writer. I think 'Kitchen Privileges' is both tender and funny and it's me.

This book was an easy read and it always kept the reader guessing.
Just make sure you plan to read it when you have plenty of time; you won't want to stop until the very end.
I really liked this book, It was probably one of the best books MHC wrote.

Elizabeth Lange, a beautiful,up and coming young actress is invited to spend time at a spa for the rich and famous, by the owners of the spa who had been friends of her lately deceased sister, Leila, a famous star of stage and screen.
Leila's lover, celebrity financier Ted Winters, has been accused of Leila's murder and is awaiting trial.Unbeknown to Elizabeth, Ted has also been invited to the spa, along with his aide and a lawyer who is helping to prepare him for the trial.It soon becomes clear that quite a few of the people at the spa had reason to hate Leila who had antagonised many on her way to the top.Elizabeth is to be the prosecutions chief witness as she heard Leila's voice on the phone,pleading with Ted not to hurt her.It soon becomes obvious that someone is determined to kill Elizabeth and the plot thickens! I found this to be a good,quick,exciting read and not too much of a brain strain.

The novel Weep No More, My Lady by Mary Higgins Clark is a fantastic book fraught with suspense and mystery. As I began to read this book, I became enthralled in it. The book was centered around Elizabeth Lange, a twenty-six-year old actress. Elizabeth was distraught after her sister Leila, a famous movie star, was murdered. Ted Winters, a multimillionaire and Leila's fiancé, is accused of pushing Leila off the terrace of her own apartment. Elizabeth is scheduled to testify against Ted in court but she her doubts that he murdered her beloved sister.

Elizabeth is invited by a dear friend to come to Cypress Point Spa, an exclusive spa where the rich and famous stay. Elizabeth decides to go to the secluded spa, hoping to escape from all of her troubles. When she arrives at the spa, she is confronted with Ted Winters as well as some of Leila's old friends. As Elizabeth begins to discover clues about her sister's murder, she finds her own life to be in danger. Will Elizabeth be able to find the truth about Leila's death before it's too late?

This book kept me on the edge of my seat and wanting to read more. The characters seemed very real to me because the author did a thorough job of describing each one. I thought the author's unique writing style really enhanced the book. The beginning of the book was a little bit slow and slightly confusing, but the suspense made up for it. Another thing I didn't like about the book was that the narrator switched characters with each chapter but this wasn't a big problem. Despite these few things, I think this book was an excellent mystery story and I can't wait to read more books by Mary Higgins Clark. I would most definitely recommend this book to anyone, not just those who are fans of mystery, because I really enjoyed it and I hope others will, too.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Having read Weep No More, My Lady at least three times and being an avid Higgins Clark reader, I have to say that Mary Higgins Clark definitely put her best work into said book. The plot intrigued me like no other book of hers I have ever read. In Weep No More, My Lady, Elizabeth Lange, a young actress, is grieving over her sister's death more than one year later. Her sister, Leila LaSalle, was murdered at her New York apartment. Preparing to testify against her dead sister's fiancee following his murder indictment in the case, an old friend of hers and accused murderer, Ted Winters, invites her to stay at lovely Cypress Point Spa in California-while Ted is also staying there. Her stay at the spa allows Elizabeth to dwell on her testimony and ponder whether or not it is accurate. As Elizabeth begins to unveil the truth, she is faced with danger. A great book-I definitely recommend this to any Mary Higgins Clark or general suspense fan. A definite page-turner. I could not set this book down!
