Ellen Byerrum
Ellen Byerrum is a Washington, D.C., news reporter, playwright (under her pen name Eliot Byerrum), and novelist, the creator of the Crime of Fashion mystery series. She also holds a private investigator's registration in the state of Virginia. Her Crime of Fashion mysteries star a savvy sleuth with a keen sense of style: Lacey Smithsonian. Lacey is a reluctant fashion reporter in Washington, "the city fashion forgot." Her job qualifications include a nose for nuance, a knack for unraveling mysteries, and a wardrobe full of fabulous Forties suits and killer heels.  Her exasperating fashion beat entangles her in surprising adventures in which she stumbles upon fashion clues, fabulous shoes, tempting (and infuriating) men, and of course the occasional interestingly attired dead body...

Ms. Byerrum and her stylish heroine share a fondness for vintage fashion and a balcony overlooking the Potomac River, but, alas, their beloved Nissan 280ZX is now just a memory. The Crime of Fashion series began with Killer Hair and continues with Designer Knockoff and Hostile Makeover.
