Elizabeth Swann Lewis holds a JD from Wayne State University Law School in Detroit and a certificate in Fiction Writing from Gotham Writers Workshop in Manhattan.

Her current novel in progress, Corsets, chronicles the life of Julien Bellerose, a fledgling artist preoccupied with vibrant fauvist visions. Its 1906 Paris, women are tossing their corsets, and painters with strange ideas are incensing the city. To pursue his art, Julien must defy his traditional parents’ demands that he live and work in his family’s centuries old patisserie. Three Parisian women, each struggling with her own unconventional desires, inspire a series of trailblazing paintings entitled Les Trois Jeunes Femmes. Julien’s chance encounters with a notorious courtesan lend perspective on intimacy and catapult him to the heights of the Parisian art world.

Elizabeth is a freelance attorney and lives on the corner of an Amish farm in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania with her ridiculously magnificent husband, Mark. She has forgone a demanding career in law to write full time. Inquiries may be sent to elizabethswannlewis@gmail.com.
