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."

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).

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)
Ellen Byerrum I'm so glad you love the series, but don't worry it isn't ending anytime soon. There are 11 books in the series so far and I do plan on writing more.…moreI'm so glad you love the series, but don't worry it isn't ending anytime soon.

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