Sue Grafton, author of the best-selling "alphabet series" of mystery novels, has died in Santa Barbara. She was 77. Grafton was surrounded by family, including husband Steven Humphrey, when she died Thursday after a two-year battle with cancer, her daughter, Jamie Clark, posted on the author's website. "Although we knew this was coming, it was unexpected and fast. She had been fine up until just a few days ago, and then things moved quickly," the posting said. Grafton began her "alphabet series" in 1982 with A is for Alibi. Her most recent book, Y is for Yesterday, was published in August.

Heard a portion of an interview with her where she described how she started writing mysteries. She said she was going through a divorce and had some thoughts about how it would be easier to just kill him. Her being the non-murdery type turned those thoughts into inspiration for a novel.
