ABC News reports that Mary Higgins Clark and daughter Carol Higgins Clark both had bestselling novels on the New York Times bestsellers list on Mother's Day.

Suspense authors Mary Higgins Clark and her daughter Carol Higgins Clark are set to celebrate Mother's Day in high literary form -- by residing together on the New York Times Best Sellers list.

Both women released mystery novels on April 13, with the elder Clark's "The Shadow of Your Smile," ranking No. 6 on the Times' Hardcover Fiction best sellers list on May 7. Her daughter's "Wrecked," the 13th in her series featuring private investigator Regan Reilly, ranked 28th on the same list.

Mary Higgins Clark and Carol Higgins Clark also think alike. The article says they were stunned when their editors told them they had to change the names of some of their characters because they were so similar.

One of the reasons they are both on the bestseller list at the same time is they release their books at the same time. Mary Higgings Clark told ABC News that they like to release their books on the same day so they can travel together.
