Where have I been, I didn't know Mary Higgins Clark gave awards wow. The Humans and Reconstructing Amelia are on my list.

I think that is just the name of the award and Ms. Clark doesn't have anything personally to do with it. That is my understanding.

There are several on this list I am putting on my TBR stack.
