Sue Grafton at one of her alphabet series book signings

2018-02-03 - Photo from family collection.
Good friend Joan McKinney of Campbellsville, at right, and I talked about how deeply we felt the loss when one of our favorite authors, Sue Grafton, pictured with Joan at left, passed away at the end of the year. Joan had enjoyed having met her when she'd attended a book signing. Grafton, author of the best-selling "alphabet series" of mystery novels, died in December, 2017 at age 77 after she'd fought a two-year battle with cancer. She began her alphabet series in 1982 and made it all the way to Y for Yesterday, and sadly, her family announced there will be no "Z". - Linda Waggener
