About the Author

Ellen Mansoor Collier is a Houston-based freelance magazine writer whose articles and essays have been published in several national magazines including: FAMILY CIRCLE, MODERN BRIDE, GLAMOUR, BIOGRAPHY, COSMOPOLITAN, COUNTRY ACCENTS, PLAYGIRL, etc. Several of her short stories have appeared in WOMAN'S WORLD. A flapper at heart, she’s the owner of MODERNEMILLIE on Etsy, specializing in Deco to retro vintage items. Formerly she's worked as a magazine editor, and in advertising and public relations. She graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in Magazine Journalism and was active in WICI, serving as President her senior year, as well as the campus magazine UTmost. During college, she worked as a cocktail waitress one summer, a short-lived experience. FLAPPERS, FLASKS AND FOUL PLAY is her first novel, followed by BATHING BEAUTIES, BOOZE AND BULLETS, GOLD DIGGERS, GAMBLERS AND GUNS and VAMPS, VILLAINS AND VAUDEVILLE, inspired by real-life rival gangs, historical events and Galveston landmarks. "When you grow up in Houston, Galveston becomes like a second home. I had no idea this sleepy beach town had such a wild and colorful past until I began doing research, and became fascinated by the legends and stories of the 1920s. Finally I had to stop researching and start writing, trying to imagine a flapper's life in Galveston during Prohibition."
