About this author

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

All the best.(less)

It will be available in trade paperback, and hopefully be available in some stores, but certainly via Amazon. However, it might be issued several weeks after the ebook appears. (less)

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