Update on the Huguette Clark story

I blogged a couple of weeks ago about the Clark family, who I researched for a little background detail on my upcoming Rosette, Montana Belle. (The characters and story aren’t really based on the Clarks–I just used some aspects of their story for background and period detail.) A couple of updates: I’ve now sold Montana Belle (yah!) and, more interestingly, the media attention on Huguette Clark’s reclusive nature and vast fortune has sparked New York officials to launch an investigation into her welfare. She’s 104 years old, and her family fears that the managers responsible for handling her money may be taking advantage of her infirmity. Anyway, here’s the update:

About Linda Morris

Linda Morris is a multipublished writer of contemporary and historical romance. She writes stories with heart and heat, and a joke or two thrown in. When she's not writing, working, or mommying, she's doing yoga, reading, working in her flower garden, or baking delicious things she probably shouldn't eat. A beat-up old copy of Kathleen Woodiwiss's "Ashes in the Wind" that her mom bought for her at a garage sale years ago was her "gateway drug" into the world of romance novels. Her all-time favorite romance writers include Laura Kinsale, Patricia Gaffney, Elizabeth Delancey, and Marjorie Ferrell. Current favorites include Julie Anne Long, Erin McCarthy, and Shannon McKenna.

    Those guys sound like a couple of crooks! How terrible. I hope her story has a happy ending. It's a shame for her to have lived to such a golden age only to be abused.

  3. Sounds like a movie or a great book – scheming lawyers, relatives circling like vultures. Now we need a hero to save the day! I bet Huguette has a few tales to tell…

  5. Congratulations on your sale! The Clark story is intriguing and I am so glad for the period information. As well, I hope Hugette is not being abused. Remarkable to live to 104. A lady in our church is 102 and she tells great stories and still lives alone and attends church. Thank goodness she gave up driving four years ago!
