Unhappy Mystery Author Sue Grafton (1940-2017)

https://tinyurl.com/y7l9yopg

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) Louisville native Sue Grafton, who wrote a prolific and best-selling series of alphabetically titled mystery novels, has died in California, according to Steve Bass, a family friend. She was 77.

Bass, who also led last year's effort to honor Grafton with a downtown Louisville banner, said Grafton died Thursday night in Santa Barbara, Calif.

A graduate of Atherton High School and the University of Louisville, Grafton worked as a screenwriter before writing the first of her popular Kinsey Millhone novels, A is for Alibi, in 1982. She published her most recent book in the series, Y is for Yesterday, earlier this year.

Grafton's daughter Jamie posted on Facebook on Friday that her mother died Thursday surrounded by family after a two-year battle with cancer.

Jamie had tough news for fans of her mother's books. "Many of you also know that she was adamant that her books would never be turned into movies or TV shows, and in that same vein, she would never allow a ghost writer to write in her name. Because of all of those things, and out of the deep abiding love and respect for our dear sweet Sue, as far as we in the family are concerned, the alphabet now ends at Y."

So Sad! I've been reading her books since i was 13. I just finished Y is for Yesterday not long ago. Her books have the right mixture of suspense and humor. RIP Ms. Grafton.

So sad to hear of her passing, and that she was only one letter away from finishing her Alphabet Mystery series..

Maybe the last book will be finished by someone else.

^This is possible, but it seems that whenever another author takes over for a writer who has passed, the books are not written with the same style...
