Photo of Sue Grafton’s Christmas Card by G.
When I was in Junior High School, I wrote a fan letter to author Sue Grafton asking for her autograph. Sue Grafton is most famously known for her ‘alphabet series’ of detective novels (“A is For Alibi,” “B is For Burgler,” etc.) that feature Kinsey Milhone. She’s currently up to the letter U (“U is For Undertow”). When I wrote that letter, not only did she reply to me, but I was added to her permanent list and without fail, for over 15 years, I’ve received a Christmas card from Sue Grafton, year after year. I have to tell you, I think that is one of the coolest things and I truly look forward to receiving her card each holiday season. So I’d like to say happy holidays back to you Sue Grafton and thanks again for bringing a smile to my face both for your wonderful novels, but also for your thoughtful cards.
