Previous Month Results in Query

I need to create a query that is going to give me a list of last month results.  I know how to get the mtd results, but how do I get last months?  In my previous mtd query, it is giving me last month results but it is also including the first day of the current month...but I only want results for the month of September only.


<cfset TodayDate = DateFormat(Now(), "M/D/YYYY")>
<cfset FirstOfMonth = Month(Now()) & "/1/" & Year(Now())>
<cfset FirstOfLastMonth = Month(Now())-1 & "/1/" & Year(Now())>

<CFQUERY name="sepempsmtd" datasource="myds">
      SELECT *
      FROM qsel_employee_info
      WHERE Active=0
            AND AWS_EndDate1 BETWEEN ###FirstOfMonth### AND ###TodayDate###
      ORDER BY AWS_EndDate1 asc
<CFQUERY name="sepempsprevmtd" datasource="myds">
      SELECT *
      FROM qsel_employee_info
      WHERE Active=0
            AND AWS_EndDate1 BETWEEN ###FirstOfLastMonth### AND ###FirstOfMonth###
      ORDER BY AWS_EndDate1 asc

try this :

<CFSET PreviousMonth = Month(DateAdd('m',-1,Now()))>
<CFSET PreviousYear = Year(DateAdd('m',-1,Now()))>
<CFSET PreviousDays = DaysInMonth(DateAdd('m',-1,Now()))>

<CFSET StartDate = CreateDate(PreviousYear,PreviousMonth,1)>
<CFSET EndDate = CreateDate(PreviousYear,PreviousMonth,PreviousDays)>

#StartDate# - #EndDate#


<CFQUERY name="sepempsmtd" datasource="myds">
     SELECT *
     FROM qsel_employee_info
     WHERE Active=0
          AND AWS_EndDate1 BETWEEN
     ORDER BY AWS_EndDate1 asc
Similarly for the other query as well
