After several years working as a secretary and copy editor, she spent a year as a stewardess for Pan-American Airlines before leaving her job to marry and start a family.

After her husband died in 1964, Higgins Clark worked for many years writing four-minute radio scripts until her agent persuaded her to try writing novels.

Her daughter Carol Higgins Clark and former daughter-in-law Mary Jane Clark, are also writers.
