Ellen Byerrum is a Washington, D.C., news reporter, novelist and playwright. She also holds a Virginia private investigator's registration. Her Crime of Fashion mysteries star a savvy, stylish sleuth: Lacey Smithsonian, a reluctant fashion reporter in Washington D.C., "The City Fashion Forgot."
Lacey would rather be working "hard news," but her nose for nuance, eye for a great story, and talent for getting into trouble make her the right reporter for the Crimes of Fashion beat. In her vintage suits and killer heels, she trips over fashion clues, fabulous shoes, dangerous women, drop-dead men, and of course the occasional corpse (who wouldn't be caught dead dressed like that).
Ellen and her fictional creation Lacey Smithsonian share a love

Lacey will return in another new adventure, hopefully later in 2015, titled the Masque of the Red Dress. But look for a new thriller outside the series titled Dollhouse in the Crawlspace first and possibly a book about Lacey Smithsonian's Great aunt Mimi, when she was a young woman working in Washington, D.C. during the war. It is called The Brief Luminous Flight of the Firefly.

Thanks so much for your interest. And you can also find my news on Facebook. Cheers.(less)

Thanks, Teresa,

I'm very glad you have enjoyed my books, even though I do not consider them to be cozy at all. They are sharper tongued and satirical. I absolutely support your decision not to support Amazon. That's why we have choices. I made a choice not to starve by taking another publisher contract. But if you give it awhile, LBD will soon be able to be ordered through independent booksellers. All the best.(less)

Provocative and evocative story. Made me want to read A Moveable Feast again, even though Hemingway comes off as a colossal jerk.
