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."

The pub date for Y IS FOR… is in sight (August 22 in case you haven’t heard) and I’m curious to hear the title possibilities you’ve come up with in your fevered imaginations. There is usually endless speculation on the subject and I can picture you cruising your dictionary and thesaurus for likely candidates. (Hint from the author…it isn’t yo-yo.)
If you have a guess, we’d love to hear it along with the reasons for your choice. In the interests of transparency, I should admit there’s no tangible reward in store if you come up with the very title I’ve selected, however you would be accorded bragging rights and you’d be entitled to feel superior as you lord it over all your friends. This is the sort of tacky attitude that Kinsey herself would approve.
I’m looking forward to hearing from you so fire away when you’re ready. Best of luck!

Thank you. I truly appreciate your responses to my post. I should have known that Kinsey Millhone fans would be easy-going, good-natured, and supportive. You're the best!
I hope you'll take a few minutes to bring yourselves up to date on an issue that surfaced four years ago when I made a careless and ill-thought-out comment about self-published authors. There was a great deal of uproar at the time and I did what I could to correct for my faulty judgment. The conflict seemed to have been resolved and I was appreciative of the understanding and forgiveness of those who were upset and offended by what I said. Now the outrage has resurfaced. I'm assuming someone dredged up the matter from the depths of the internet and is putting the controversy into play again. I believe the dispute was resolved four years ago and I'm not sure why we need to revisit the fray. You can avail yourselves of my apology by scrolling down half a page to the section where I've provided the original mea culpa. We live in a troubled world and I hope we can work diligently to settle such clashes and put the scrapping to rest.
