LOS ANGELES, Ca. (AP) - Mystery writer Sue Grafton has died in Santa Barbara, California at age 77.
Her daughter, Jamie Clark, posted news of her mother's death on Grafton's web page Friday.
She said her mother passed away Thursday night after a two-year battle with cancer and was surrounded by family, including Grafton's husband, Steve.
Grafton was the author of the so-called Kinsey Millhone Alphabet Series in which each book title begins with a letter from the alphabet. The last was "Y is for Yesterday."
