National Book Festival

Sue Grafton's mystery novels featuring California private investigator Kinsey Millhone began with "A Is for Alibi" (1982). The alphabet has now been covered to the letter "P" with Grafton's most recent "P Is for Peril" (2001). Besides mysteries, Grafton has written screenplays and television scripts and is published in 28 countries and 26 languages. She divides her time between Montecito, California, and Louisville, Kentucky, where she was born and raised.
