Remembering Sue Grafton

Remembering Sue Grafton

Prolific mystery writer Sue Grafton died in December at the age of 77. Grafton was born in 1940 in Louisville and graduated from the University of Louisville before moving to suburban Los Angeles to begin a career in screenwriting. After becoming inspired by the novels of John D. MacDonald (colors mystery series) and Harry Kemelman (days of the week mystery series), a look at Edward Gorey's Gashlycrumb Tinies alphabet gave her the idea of a woman detective whose stories were each based on a letter of the alphabet. A is for Alibi was published in 1982. Grafton continued the adventures of her heroine Kinsey Millhone almost yearly since then with the alphabet nearly complete. Her last novel, Y is for Yesterday, was released to acclaim in August of 2017. Unfortunately, the series will end there.
