Sue Grafton

Sue Grafton first introduced Kinsey Millhone in the Alphabet Series in 1982, and since then, both writer and heroine have become icons and international bestsellers. Grafton is a writer who consistently breaks the bonds of genre while never writing the same book twice. Named a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America, she has also received many other honors and awards, including the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Private Eye Writers of America, the Ross Macdonald Literary Award, the Cartier Diamond Dagger Award from Britain’s Crime Writers’ Association, the Lifetime Achievement Award from Malice Domestic, the Anthony Award given by Bouchercon, and three Shamus Awards. She lives in Montecito, California, and Louisville, Kentucky.
