I suppose I can understand Sue Grafton's reluctance to have her main character age in real time, but it might also have been interesting to see her deal w/the challenges of aging in her profession! Where might Kinsey Millhone be in 2009?

IMHO

How has Ms. Grafton done financially over the years and, if she has become increasingly well-off, how has her lifestyle influenced her method of writing?
