Sue Grafton Dies: Mystery Writer Was 77

......Mystery writer Sue Grafton has died. Her daughter, Jamie Clark, shared news of her mother’s death Friday on Facebook. Clark says her mother died Thursday night after a two-year battle with cancer at the age of 77.

Grafton is best known as the author of the so-called alphabet novels, ( “A” Is for Alibi, among others) featuring private investigator Kinsey Millhone in the fictional city of Santa Teresa, California.

Earlier in her career, Grafton wrote screenplays for television movies, including Sex and the Single Parent, Mark, I Love You, and Nurse. Her screenplay for Walking Through the Fire earned a Christopher Award in 1979. In collaboration with her husband, Steven Humphrey, she also adapted the Agatha Christie novels A Caribbean Mystery and Sparkling Cyanide for television and co-wrote A Killer in the Family and Love on the Run. She is also credited with the story upon which the screenplay for the 1983 TV movie Svengali was based.

The title for the last book was chosen quite some time ago, before either "X" or "Y is for Yesterday" (I think that is right). "Z is for Zero" seems almost prophetic. RIP Ms. Grafton.

Until the publisher is willing to throw enough cash at her estate that "Z is for Zero" gets ghost-written.

Really bad news. I love her books. And I really hope that her estate, publisher, and fans have enough respect to leave the body of her work alone. I will not be buying Z.

Sue Grafton
23 hours ago
“Hello Dear Readers. This is Sue's daughter, Jamie. I am sorry to tell you all that Sue passed away last night after a two year battle with cancer. She was surrounded by family, including her devoted and adoring husband Steve. Although we knew this was coming, it was unexpected and fast. She had been fine up until just a few days ago, and then things moved quickly. Sue always said that she would continue writing as long as she had the juice. 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.”
