Sue Grafton has become one of the most popular female writers, both in the UK and in the US. Born in Kentucky in 1940, she began her career as a TV scriptwriter before Kinsey Millhone and the 'alphabet' series took off. She plans to take Kinsey all the way through the alphabet to Z. Sue lives and writes in Montecito, California and Louisville, Kentucky.
Sue Grafton's Alphabet series of novels, featuring clever, feisty and funny Californian private eye Kinsey Millhone, in order from A to X.
Sue Grafton, author of the Kinsey Millhone Alphabet series, tells us her all-time favourite fictional detectives.
"In many ways, hospitals, like court rooms, are the venue of those teetering on the edge."

I appreciate so many of you writing here to say that you're as baffled as I am. Readers often quiz me about the early books and sometimes I have no idea what they're talking about. Embarrassing as I'm the author, but there you have it. No wonder eye witnesses are considered so unreliable. Many of us create 'memories' out of whole cloth. I confess I'm capable of forgetting the details and I'm happy to have so many of you chiming in. Thanks!

Thought I wrote a note to be posted here but now I can't find it. A reader is asking which of the novels in the series has a character named Peter Straith. In the note that disappeared, I mentioned that Megan has promised to be your best friend for life if you can answer her question.
A reader is asking which of the novels in the series makes reference to a character named Peter Straith. Having written 24, I can remember but I'm hoping a reader out there can supply the answer. Megan promises she'll be your best friend for life if you can tell her!

Happy Thanksgiving, Dear Ones. We're in Kentucky and it's damp, chilly and gray outside. Perfect day for cooking. We'll have 17 at the table and yesterday we did much of the grocery shopping and some of the prep. We like to eat late in the day so we can have candles on the table and a fire in the fireplace. Hope you're warm and safe and healthy and surrounded by those you love! Take care and be well from Ms. Millhone and me!
