The successful American writer Mary Higgins Clark, known by her fans as The queen of suspense, has died at 92, as confirmed by its editor. One of the best selling authors in the world, who continued to produce a book a year, died “surrounded by family and friends,” Simon & Schuster reported.
Born in New York, in the Bronx, on December 24, 1927, in a modest family of Irish descent, Mary Higgins Clark used to say that she “contracted the virus of writing” at the age of 7.
She was the author of such significant successes in the Anglo-Saxon field as the novel Where are the children? -of which more than four million copies have been sold- or Remember me – with more than two million. Some of his works have been adapted to film and television. Very prolific author in the police, suspense and mystery genre, each of her novels has become a bestseller in the United States and in several European countries.
Since its first worldwide success Where are the children? It became one of the benchmarks of the suspense genre. He has also written several collections of stories, a historical novel and two youth books. His work has deserved the most prestigious national and international awards and prizes of the genre.
His latest books published in Spanish are Don’t cry for a kiss, The last dance, Lies of blood, I know you’ll be back and The lost years.
