    Rest in Peace to mystery writer Sue Grafton. She passed away from cancer last night.
    I discovered her books in High School, and I think the first book of her’s that I read was ‘D is for Deadbeat’. I’ve read just about all of them since.
    Y is for Yesterday was her last book. She never made it to Z.

    Thanks Sue for all the great hours of reading.

    Here's the Facebook post her daughter wrote:

    Hello Dear Readers. This is Sue's daughter, Jamie. I am sorry to tell you all that Sue passed away last night after a two year battle with cancer. She was surrounded by family, including her devoted and adoring husband Steve. 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. Sue always said that she would continue writing as long as she had the juice. Many of you also know that she was adamant that her books would never be turned into movies or TV shows, and in that same vein, she would never allow a ghost writer to write in her name. Because of all of those things, and out of the deep abiding love and respect for our dear sweet Sue, as far as we in the family are concerned, the alphabet now ends at Y.​

    I never read her books but my mom loved them. Terrible news. Fucking cancer, yet again. :scream:

    Rest in peace, Sue Grafton.
