LOS ANGELES — Sue Grafton, author of the best-selling "alphabet series" of mystery novels, has died in Santa Barbara. She was 77.

Grafton began her "alphabet series" in 1982 with "A is for Alibi." Her most recent book, "Y is for Yesterday," was published in August.

Husband Steven Humphrey said Grafton had been struggling to find an idea for "Z'' while undergoing treatment and losing weight.

"Nothing's been written," he told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. "There is no Z."

Grafton began writing at 18, and wrote her first novel at 22. "A is for Alibi" was the eighth novel she wrote, and the third she had published.

She died Thursday after a 2 year battle with cancer.
