From the Publisher:
Includes stories that detail Alphabet series heroine Kinsey MIllhone's origins, as well as true tales of the author's past.
The daughter of lawyer and mystery writer C. W. Grafton, Sue Grafton attended the University of Louisville where she graduated with a B.A. in 1961. She published her first novel, "Keziah", in 1967. While working on the screen adaption of her second novel, "The Lolly-Madonna War", in 1973, Grafton began a 15-year career writing for television and film in Hollywood. In 1982 she wrote her first mystery to feature private investigator Kinsey Millhone, "'A' is for Alibi". Each successive installation in this popular series of novels has begun with the next letter of the alphabet. Millhone, twice-divorced and living on her own, is a tough, independent woman, one the first and most successful of a new breed of female detectives to branch off from the hard-boiled, male detectives who have dominated the genre. Grafton's biography, "'G' is for Grafton", goes further in describing Millhone than it does her creator, although it does illuminate the many similarities between the two. Grafton had three children in her two marriages previous to her third, to writing partner Steven Humphrey. For years, she has lived in Santa Barbara, which serves as a model for the fictional town of Santa Teresa, where Millhone is based.
