Carol Higgins Clark, a popular mystery writer from Bergen County who was a member of the New Jersey Hall of Fame, died Monday at a hospital in Los Angeles. She was 66.
The cause was appendix cancer, which she had battled for three years, according to her obituary.
Clark was the author of more than a dozen books, following in the footsteps of her mother, the famed mystery author Mary Higgins Clark. The younger Clark began her life in writing by typing out her mother’s manuscripts, and went on to co-write several novels with her.
