I'm deeply grieved to learn of Sue Grafton's death. Kinsey and VI were both born in 1982 and our writing worlds have been closely twined ever since. This is a grievous loss

Heartbreaking news for mystery lovers: Sue Grafton has died at 77. A favorite of mine since A is For Alibi in 1982. From her family: "The alphabet now ends at Y." RIP.

Deeply saddened to hear of the death of Sue Grafton. She was amazingly generous to me when I was starting out and remained a good and supportive pal. And Kinsey Millhone was one of the pioneering female PIs who showed the rest of us the way.

Very sad to hear that the wonderful Sue Grafton has passed. She forged a path for women in crime fiction, and all of us followed and adored her. Deepest condolences to her family.

I'm still processing the terrible news that we've lost Sue Grafton. The first time I met her, in a long book-signing line, I blurted out that she was my hero. Getting to know her a bit once I was a published author was truly an honor.

Sue Grafton was unfailingly kind to me in ways I cannot even begin to express properly. I interviewed her twice: once for the LA Times (in 2009) and once onstage at the Toronto Public Library in 2013. RIP to a crime fiction game-changer. pic.twitter.com/82KTTBE5iM

Sue Grafton RIP
B was for Brilliant.
Kinsey Milhone will live forever as one of most memorable, engaging, and completely unexpected detective fiction heroes. Grafton & Milhone had me and so many others at "A is for Alibi" long ago. An extraordinary achievement, from A to Y. https://t.co/qRq7phRn09

Sue Grafton, your books made my life better and walked me through some hard times. Thank you from a grateful reader.

Sending our deepest condolences. We will all miss Sue Grafton. She made it to Y in life… but somehow I know she is working on Z wherever she is… https://t.co/4uu9ohqnsp

I never read a single one of these books but I am genuinely sad she didn’t get to finish the last one. https://t.co/oDkRf5AZIl

I wrote a paper on Sue Grafton in a detective fiction class in 1992. She was VERY good at what she did, and I send my thoughts and sympathy to her family.

The great Sue Grafton, author of 'A' Is for Alibi and other iconic mysteries in the 'A to Z' series, has passed away at the age of 77. In 2010, WD was fortunate enough to speak with her about her work. Read part of the interview here: https://t.co/YaUk0H9TPX pic.twitter.com/Xo8yOb56HO

Today we remember Sue Grafton, a creative and talented author whom inspired me. She inspired me to create an ongoing series which led to the Cedar Cove series. Sue will be missed greatly! pic.twitter.com/kskDpMMMH5
