The Great Grafton

Sue Grafton gets the Lifetime Achievement Award this year at Bouchercon, The World Mystery Convention, in Albany, N.Y.

Sue and I came on board Bantam Books about the same time, a very long time ago. And I remember a talk she gave at an early Bouchercon. A member of the audience got up and pointed out the fatal flaw in Sue’s Kinsey Milhone mystery series. “You’ve named them after letters of the alphabet. You can only write 26 of them, then you’re done.”

She kindly thanked the woman for pointing that out and added that, with luck, she’d come up with a Plan B by then.
