Rest in Peace Sue Grafton

Over the years I had grown tired of the formulaic scripts in mystery novels. Then I discovered the Kinsey Millhone Alphabet Series. I’m not a fan of first-person stories but this one grabbed me.

I suppose this is because Kinsey was a grown woman, with grown thoughts and ideas- and she wasn’t trying to save the universe. She is a private detective doing her job, doing what needed to be done.

Thank you, Sue Grafton, for creating a relatable, realistic, and believable character.

Thank you for sharing so much of yourself with the world through your novels.

As a writer, Sue Grafton was and will continue to be an inspiration to me. You will be missed by many.

Sue Grafton died on Thursday, December 28, after a two-year battle with cancer. She was 77.
