Sue Grafton debuted in the mystery genre with the release of 'A' Is for Alibi in 1982, which introduced Kinsey Millhone, a female hard-boiled private investigator based in the fictional town of Santa Teresa (or Santa Barbara) California. In 1995, 'B' is for Burglar was released, and the 'alphabet' mystery series, also known as 'the alphabet' mysteries, is still going strong. She's also written several Kinsey Millhone short tales, and she and her husband, Steven Humphrey, wrote several television movies, including A Killer in the Family (with Robert Mitchum), Love on the Run (starring Alec Baldwin and Stephanie Zimbalist), and two Agatha Christie adaptations, Sparkling Cyanide and Caribbean Mystery (both starring Helen Hayes). Grafton is available in 26 languages and 28 countries. She adores pets, gardens, and delicious food. Sue lives in both Montecito, California, and Louisville, Kentucky, where she was born and reared.
