It is truly a bummer to have to ring in the new year after suffering the loss of Sue Grafton. I’ll never forget the time I met her at Malice, so many years ago. She was a sweetie, not to mention being one the crime authors I found most inspiring around the time I started writing fiction on a regular basis.

Farewell, Sue. You will be missed. 🙁 #RIPSueGrafton
