Sue Grafton is most well known for her 'Alphabet' Detective stories. Sadly having conceived of the idea of one book for each letter of the alphabet, she died before starting the final book which was to be Z is for Zero. Her father who was a Municpal bond lawyer also wrote detective fiction in his spare time and taught his young daughter to write. Grafton's early attempts at novels were not successful and she later destroyed several of the unpublished manuscripts. Instead she turned to scriptwriting and met with considerable success. But it seems her first love was writing detective novels and 'A is for Alibi' was published in 1982. Her heroine Kinsey Millhone Grafton described as her alter ego, the person she would have been, had she not married and had children early - the unlived life.
