QUARTERLY PANEL FORMAT:
WOMEN AUTHORS
featuring
Ellen Crosby
Ellen Crosby is the author of six books in the Virginia wine 
country mystery series, as well as Moscow Nights, a standalone 
mystery based loosely on her time as Moscow correspondent for 
ABC Radio News in the late 1980s. Before writing fiction, she also 
 worked as a freelance reporter for The Washington Post and as an 
economist at the US Senate.

Her next book, MULTIPLE EXPOSURE, will be released on August 6, 2013 

by Scribner. The first in a new mystery series featuring photojournalist 
Sophie Medina, the story draws on her insider knowledge of Washington 
politics, her journalism background, and her stint as a Moscow reporter. 
After living overseas for many years–England, Switzerland, France, Italy, 
Spain, and the former Soviet Union–Crosby, who has an undergraduate 
degree in political science and a masters in international affairs, now 
resides in the D.C. suburbs of northern Virginia. Visit her website
