Pseudonym: Laura DiSilverio.
Ella Barrick grew up in the South, but has since migrated
West. She spent some time working for Uncle Sam and taught
English at the college level before turning her hand to
Ella and her husband took exactly two ballroom dancing
lessons on the quickstep before Ella’s bruised ankles
and crushed feet forced them to retire. (Her husband is a
wonderful guy, but he doesn’t have a single ballroom
dance gene in his whole body.) Thus, Ella relies on the
kindness of competitive ballroom dancers and friends who
foxtrot fabulously for the dance details in her Ballroom
Dance Mysteries. And, of course, she watches Dancing
with the Stars for costume and choreography ideas!
Besides writing, Ella enjoys reading, gardening, home
decorating, traveling, and long walks or hikes.
