At 90 years old, best-selling novelist Mary Higgins Clark doesn’t plan to stop writing anytime soon. While she’s achieved significant fame and financial success, a love of storytelling continues to inspire her.

Her drive and persistence paid off as her books have sold over 100 million copies in the U.S. alone, and her wealth has enabled her to make significant charitable gifts.

In this Secrets of Wealthy Women podcast with host Veronica Dagher, the Queen of Suspense explains how wealth changed her life and what surprises her about having money.

“The funny part is, now that I can afford to buy anything I want, I’m thoroughly bored with shopping,” she says.

Ms. Clark also gives advice to widows and aspiring authors—and shares what motivates her to give back.
