Washington post WWW site, viewed Feb. 26, 2020 (in obituary dated Feb. 26, 2020: Clive Cussler, the multimillion-selling adventure writer and real-life thrill-seeker who wove personal details and spectacular fantasies into his page-turning novels about underwater explorer Dirk Pitt, died Feb. 24 at his home in Scottsdale, Ariz. He was 88. Mr. Cussler was an Illinois native who was raised in Southern California and lived in Arizona for most of his final years. Mr. Cussler has a new novel, "Journey of the Pharaohs," set to be released March 10, with several more awaiting posthumous publication. In real life, Mr. Cussler founded his own National Underwater and Marine Agency and participated in dozens of searches for old ships. Born on July 15, 1931, in Aurora, Ill., Clive Eric Cussler's name and writing persona have the air of a pseudonym, but he was born with his moniker. Through much of the 1960s, he worked in advertising, as a copywriter and creative director)
