Autograph letter signed: "Mary Higgins Clark", in blue ink, 8½x11. In full: "Dear Gil - Sorry to be so long. I've been away (just got back from Greece!) I'm so glad if the signed books help. Anytime. Thanks for selling my books - Cheers -". Mary Higgins Clark (1927-2020) began her career in the advertising division of Remington-Rand writing catalog copy and modeling for the company brochures. Then, inspired to see the world, she worked as a stewardess for PanAm international, traveling through Europe, Africa and Asia. In 1949 she was on the last flight allowed into Czechoslovakia before the fall of the Iron Curtain. After a year of flying, she married Warren Clark and went back to school to write. She sold her first magazine short story in 1956 and continued until the late 1960s. In 1975 her first suspense novel, Where Are the Children? was published, with the paperback rights netting her $100,000. Since then she has written some forty plus novels - 24 international best sellers. To highlighting her career in the 1990s, she signed a $64 million 4 book contract. At the 55th Annual Edgar Allan Poe Awards, Clark was inducted as a Grand Master. A devout Catholic, she was made a Dame of the Order of St. Gregory the Great by the Pope and has been awarded the Graymoor Award (1999) by the Franciscan Friars. Normal mailing fold.
