Mystery writer, Sue Grafton Interview

Mystery writer, Sue Grafton, has had a very successful run with her Kinsey Millhone series of novels. Known as the alphabet mysteries,"A" is for Alibi, “B” is for Burglar,” and so on up until "U is for Undertow" her December 2009 book, Grafton has continued to put out a good book with each story. I personally have not read them all, but did read a few of the early alphabet.

I did hear her speak at a mystery writers luncheon some years back and very much enjoyed her talk. Thinking back it may have been in the very late 1980s. At that time her series was fairly new as the first book was published in 1983—but even so, she was already an international best-selling author.

In this recent interview here from Borders, she addresses the reason she is not interested in her books becoming films, and many writers often hold her view on that. And Grafton is even more in the “know” as she worked in Hollywood on films for fifteen years.
