When I first met Mary Higgins Clark—on the shelf of my public library—I was 12. Pretty sure I was too young and naive for most of what I found between those covers, but I LOVED those books.
So to be nominated for the Simon & Schuster Mary Higgins Clark Award is no small thing for me. She is surely among the writers who made me the writer I am today.
Do I write like her? Not sure…but today on the Jungle Reds blog, hosted by Jungle Reds author Hallie Ephron, the five nominees for the 2016 Mary Higgins Clark Award compared notes on what makes a book “like” hers and where we fit on the criteria. It’s a fun post, and I’m so thrilled to be among such great writers.
