Ellen Byerrum

Ellen Byerrum writes the popular Crime of Fashion Mysteries, set in bustling Washington, D.C., "The City That Fashion Forgot." While researching fashion for her sleuth, Lacey Smithsonian, Byerrum has collected her own assortment of 1940s styles, but laments her lack of closet space. She has been a D.C.-based news reporter, a playwright, and, even though she's moved away from the East Coast, she holds a Virginia P.I. registration.
