Sue Grafton first introduced Kinsey Millhone in the Alphabet Series in 1982 and since then, both writer and heroine have become icons. Ms. Grafton is a writer who consistently breaks the bonds of genre while never writing the same book twice. Ms. Grafton is also a fan of her work on audio, saying that she's "acquired hundreds of new converts to the books from people who hear them first on cd." She continued to say that audiobooks are a "wonderful form of literary cross-pollination and a great way to expand the audience for this series." Ms. Grafton lives in Montecito, California, and Louisville, Kentucky.
