Obituaries: Tom Clancy

Famous novelist Tom Clancy, 66, has died. He died last night in a Baltimore hospital.

Born in Baltimore, Maryland, Tom Clancy studied literature at the Loyola College in Baltimore and was originally an insurance salesman before becoming famous for writing technically detailed espionage and military science books.

He is responsible for best-selling books such as "The Hunt for Red October," "Patriot Games," "Clear and Present Danger," and "The Sum of All Fears" — all of which were adapted into major Hollywood films.

Clancy has a new book coming out in December.
