Carol Higgins Clark Interview

April 17th, 2011 by Lewis Frumkes


Carol Clark is a hoot in addition to being an entertaining novelist and actress.  Her new book “Mobbed,” another in her Regan Reilly mystery series is fast-paced and amusing which is what differentiates her from her mother Mary Higgins Clark.  Mary is all suspense while Regan is more like Carol herself, clever but also funny.  Join Regan, er Carol and me as we cackle and carry on about life and her novel “Mobbed.”  Imus loves her, so will you.
